Hello,

Whats the schema version?
Wonder if running the database upgrader would run again against it?

Hi GertjanA, It seems like

Hi GertjanA,

It seems like something went wrong with the database upgrade. Run the EVDatabaseUpgrader.exe located in the Enterprise Vault installation directory. Also, don't forget to backup all the Enterprise Vault databases before running this tool.

Running Database Upgrader
http://www.symantec.com/docs/HOWTO109498

The Enterprise Vault Database Upgrader tool is used to update the Enterprise Vault directory database, and the vault store and vault store group databases to the latest schema version. Running the tool once updates all the databases across all Enterprise Vault servers in the directory.

The databases are updated in the following order:

    1. Directory database
    2. Vault store databases (processed in parallel)
    3. Vault store group databases (processed in parallel)

The tool generates a report file. By default, this is saved to the following location:
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Enterprise Vault\Reports\


Before you run the tool, stop Enterprise Vault services on all Enterprise Vault servers, and ensure there are no active connections to the databases, for example Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio.

On successful completion of the tool the Enterprise Vault services can then be started.

The tool should be run with elevated command prompt privileges, and only one instance of the tool should be run at a time across all Enterprise Vault servers.

The tool does not require any command line parameters.

See the Upgrade Instructions for full details.

@Gabe, I'll try that

@Gabe, I'll try that tomorrow.

We're already running for 3 days (sunday, monday, tuesday), so could the upgrade have gone wrong? I have opened a case, but the engineer said he did not see any collation issues....

When back in office tomorrow, I'll verify. Be advised this error only occurred today for the first time, and was logged 5 times in a row. Until 17:00 CET, no new appearance.

It is only doing a select, but I find it a little scary.

I know that the Retain Archive History setting has moved somewhere else.

I assume I cannot just target the ' directory db' using the upgrader? I am not sure I can shutdown EV during the day.

@JW how would I get the schema version?

Regards. Gertjan

I've done some checking on

I've done some checking on the logfiles of the upgrader, and on the eventlogs on the servers. I also verified the Schema versions.

Schema version:
Directory DB = 11.48.0.160.0
VaultStores = 11.32.9.45.0

which seems to be correct according to Sym documentation.


We ran DBupgrader, it failed first time on 1 store, and thus on 1 FP database.

Second time same.

We than ran Storage service on server hosting specified VS database, worked fine. VS and VSG updated correct. Below snips from the logfiles and registry.

Could it be that this is a select coming from a report which was not correctly upgraded? I'll wait for same time today, see what happens.
