Problem upgrading from CMS 6 R1 to R2


I'm trying to upgrade to R2 using Episerver deployment center, but I get the error message: Login failed for user 'domain\user'.

But I can connect to the database with this user when I run the application.

Can I upgrade the database in some other way than using deployment center? Is it some way I can just run the scripts directly against sql server?

Yes, you can run the database scripts to achieve this. Have a look at below blog posts by Bjorn Isaksen

Thanks for your reply.

The problem was that I was using an AD user to authenticate against Sql server. After creating a regular Sql server login and defining it in the web.config, the installation went ok.
