Upgrading from LMS 3.1 to 3.2 Fails

Answered Question
Jul 30th, 2009

Hello,

I'm trying to upgrade from LMS 3.1 to 3.2. The installation starts by doing a backup. The backup is 52 GB. It takes about 45 minutes to complete the backup (I know it's finished because the size of the backup folder stops increasing and it is the size the installation program predicted). At this point the installation just hangs and becomes unresponsive. I'm running this on Windows 2003 R2 Standard x64 edition. Has anyone seen this problem?

Thanks

I have this problem too.

When the backup is done, the lock file will disappear in the backup directory. After the backup completes, validation is done, so you may want to wait longer. However, if you already have a good backup, you can run setup as:

setup.exe nobackup
