Critical Upgrade fail 3.0 -> 3.1.2



I'm trying to upgrade my installation of Community to the latest version available (3.1.2) and I hva some problems with this. First; the installation documentation is obsolete and stuff I get asked for during the install is not documented and leads to a lot of confusion. Specially the RFC provider issue. Nevertheless, the entire installation fails at a "Invalid object name 'tblStarSuitePasswordProvider'"

Doing a quck lookup in the database reveals no tblStarSuitePasswordProvider table. Anybody know what this is all about?



The installation log reads:

[544] INFO EPiServer.Install.Wizard.Data::DatabaseHelper.ExecuteNonQueryBatch+9 - Running SQL statement #37

37187 [544] ERROR EPiServer.Install.Wizard.Steps.CloserStep - Installation threw an exception.

Hi Marius,

Have you in any way unchecked the Required Framework Components 2.2 packade from the installation steps?

No, every option is checked during the install. However, just checking the RFC 2.2 package and choosing "RFC provider" (no integration) resulted in a successfull update of the framework.

Starting again, with checked upgrades (Framewok, Community)RFC Provider, Upgrade option set for Action on RFC, Action of Community to (Create tables checked) results in same Error (Upgrading Database step of installer) at the tblStarSuitePasswordProvider table.

Listing install options before beginning installation

[*] SQL Server: (local)
[*] Database: kreftforeningen
[*] IIS Web: Default Web Site (c:\inetpub\wwwroot)

Required Framework Components
[*] Action: Upgrade
[ ] Tables and Stored Procedures
[ ] Replicate Members and Roles
[*] Default Membership and Roles Provider: RFC Provider

StarCommunityTM 3.1.0:
[*] Action: Upgrade
[*] Tables and Stored Procedures
[ ] Files
[ ] EPiServer Integration

If you succeeded with installing the required framework in the first step, then try to install Community packages as a second step.

I have tried the various options of installing each component, upgrade/install. It fails every time on the same table. Applying the installation to a new database works, but on my existing database it does not.

I'm logging on the database as 'sa' user btw
