MOSS 2007 SP2 upgrade issues and how to continue RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    During our MOSS 2007 SP2 upgrade we ran into issues. While i am not sure what these all are (the log files have no specific "errror" markers in them) i have found each reboot 4 or 5 PCS files are created.

    >> So is it the situation until cancelled, the server will try to complete the upgrade each reboot or every so often ?

    >> I find i can't rerun the wizard becuase i get the below, i don't know how to reset this or find the "web application" it is referring to.

    >> SOme of the entries in the files are  below, mean much to a seasoned SP guy ?

  • Hi Greg,

    Run the following PSConfig from the command line

    psconfig.exe -cmd upgrade -inplace b2b -force

    The force command clears any blocking timer jobs that may be running...

  • Hello,

     • Do you get the error as soon as you start config wizard?
     • Does the Upgrade.log gets created at all or it upgrade exits before that? (All the files in the SkyDrive link are PSCDiagnostics*)
     • Please try psconfig.exe -cmd upgrade -inplace b2b -force (as also suggested by Ivan)
     • Please follow resolution section from http://support.microsoft.com/kb/939308 and see if that helps.
