Migration error when migration to EPiserver Commerce 7.10.3


Migration error when migration to EPiserver Commerce 7.10.3

As I have already set episerver migration to atomatic mode:

following happens:

2014-08-25 12:25:50,385 ERROR [63] EPiServer.Commerce.Internal.Migration.MigrationProgressMessenger.AddProgressMessageText - Update permanent links failed with exception 'System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
   at EPiServer.Commerce.Internal.Migration.Steps.UpdatePermanentLinkStep.GetLinkForNode(String code)
   at EPiServer.Commerce.Internal.Migration.Steps.UpdatePermanentLinkStep.GetContentLink(String code, CatalogContentType type)
   at EPiServer.Commerce.Internal.Migration.Steps.UpdatePermanentLinkStep.GetLegacyCatalogContentReferences(IProgressMessenger progressMessenger)
   at EPiServer.Commerce.Internal.Migration.Steps.UpdatePermanentLinkStep.GetCatalogContentReferences(IProgressMessenger progressMessenger)
   at EPiServer.Commerce.Internal.Migration.Steps.UpdatePermanentLinkStep.Execute(IProgressMessenger progressMessenger)'.

And migration fails any subsequent retries leads to this very same error, any ideas what might be wrong(migration starting point was EPiServer commerce 7.9)?

Sounds like a bug to me. Would you mind to send us your catalog for further investigation?

One of the first things are done by migration module is selecting from CMS db:

Select PageKey, PageGuid from dbo.[tblPageProviderMappings]

and in result is returned something like this:

PageKey                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          PageGuid

I can see stright away it looks like I have there Alloytech data and then when that alloyTech CatalogNode is beaing feched(what is deleted already)

following happens:

exec sp_executesql N'SELECT CatalogNodeId FROM CatalogNode WHERE Code = @Code',N'@Code nvarchar(100)',@Code=N'Accessories'

and in result gets:


(0 row(s) affected)

results in exception mentioned before

So is it my data that is bad or migrations process fails?

If my data is bad - some pointers would be welcome how to clean up?

As custom friendly Url provider for products is being used, does this table have any value, it looks like its just old data(from some old experiments) that is no longer being used, correct me someone if im wrong, please.

So I deleted contents and gotten successful migration.

Did fast smoke test and site appears to be working as before

tblPageProviderMappings is something back to Commerce R3 - and we're trying to make the old links to products continue working. Otherwise you might see broken links here and there.

For you issue, one or more catalog node codes might have been changed, causing the problem.

If you have no links to products/nodes from R3 which you wish to keep, then it's OK to delete the contents and move forward.
