Issues by updating the Databas shema from 12.1.1 to RU2 now

Created: 16 Nov 2012 | 9 comments

Hello Team,

I am running serveral SEPM Version 12.1.1000.157.

I just have started to upgrade the Testcenter server and an error occurs at the first server with an external DB:

2012-11-16 09:31:25.920 THREAD 28 SEVERE: SQL Exception:

Has anybody the same issue??

I am not going to delete my database!!!

Crazy idea!

It happened during the upgrate from SEp12.1 to 12.1.2 RU2. So of corse a DB called SEM5 exists.

Any other idea? Is it possible that I have insufficient rights at the external DB? It is hosted by the db team. but usually they do not touch the given rights from useres.

Thank you!

More info:

It seems that during the upgrade a table called "SE_COMPLIANCE_CRITIERIA_2" will be set up, but the filegroup "FG_INDEX" is not existing. We just have "PRIMARY" as filegroup.

Hm. I do not know what to do....

Hello to all.

Does anyone have an idea what to do now? Currently I have a non working upgraded SEP Manager and an old SEP manager that is able to use the old database. 

But now I am sure not to try the upgrade in the production area.

Finally I was able to fix this issue!!!
It seems that our database admins changed the file groups. I do not know why but they did it. This lead to one single database file and one log file.

Now we have installed a clean SEPM and added the filegroups and files manually to the database server.

But my admins told me that of corse they never changed anything.. :-)

Thanks to everyone!
