DB Migration Fails

  Asked By: Bradley    Date: Aug 06    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 701

I am getting this error when I create a new web application and
point it to a DB that I have backed up from SharePoint 2003.

The upgrade runs for about 15 minutes and then dies with "An unknown
error" on the UI.

Looking at the update.log, here is the error: (more log pasted below)

Action of
Microsoft.SharePoint.Upgrade.SPContentDatabaseSequence failed.

Any help / pointers would be greatly appreciated.

I know that you mentioned that it is a new application, but are you certain
there are no existing 2007 sites already populated? I've run into similar
problems, but performing the DB migration  into a brand new application  fixed the
problem for me.

I had problems with the db migration  using this method. In the end i
recreated my SPS 2003 setup on a separate system and then went through the
side_by_side upgrade of MOSS 2007 route. This was the only way i could get
the upgrade to work.
