Unity 5 upgrade fails - server renamed

Answered Question
Nov 22nd, 2007

I am upgrading Unity to version 5.0.1 from version 4.1.2 running on Windows 2003.


I am running the upgrade program and get the attached error.


I also see the following error in the install log file.


2007-11-22T11:29:00 - IsServerRenamedBefore Test Started. (E:\Views\CU5.0.0.297\un_Setup\UnitySetup\InstallExe\Src\READINFO.CPP 1096)

2007-11-22T11:29:00 - ...Server Rename Test: DataStore server has been renamed.. (E:\Views\CU5.0.0.297\un_Setup\UnitySetup\InstallExe\Src\READINFO.CPP 1273)



I have changed the Server name, but we did that after we installed the Operating System but before we did the Unity pre-requistes including SQL 2000.


Does anyone know where this check is looking?


Has anyone seen this before?


Thanks in advance

Yes, I ran into this last weekend on an upgrade. There is a missing row that needs to be added.


Here's the BUG ID - CSCsd92113


and the workaround:


Open SQL Enterprise Manager > Databases > UnityDB > UnitySetupParameter.


Right click and return all rows.


Go to the bottom of table.


Under Name column enter: @PrimaryServer

Under Value column enter: Name of Unity server.
