I'm doing an inplace upgrade from wss 2.0 to 3.0. I have passed pre-upgrade scan. I then install WSS 3.0 which kicks off the upgrade. The upgrade fails and in the Upgrade.log it has this stack trace below. This seemed like a time out error so I increased the timeout to unlimited in sqlserver. I then initiated the migration from command prompt again with the following code:

   psconfig –cmd upgrade –inplace v2v –wait –force

I received the same errors below again:

[SPManager] [ERROR] [8/4/2009 3:09:43 PM]: at System.Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection.OnError(SqlException exception, Boolean breakConnection) at System.Data.SqlClient.SqlInternalConnection.OnError(SqlException exception, Boolean breakConnection) at System.Data.SqlClient.TdsParser.ThrowExceptionAndWarning(TdsParserStateObject stateObj) at System.Data.SqlClient.TdsParser.Run(RunBehavior runBehavior, SqlCommand cmdHandler, SqlDataReader dataStream, BulkCopySimpleResultSet bulkCopyHandler, TdsParserStateObject stateObj) at System.Data.SqlClient.SqlCommand.RunExecuteNonQueryTds(String methodName, Boolean async) at System.Data.SqlClient.SqlCommand.InternalExecuteNonQuery(DbAsyncResult result, String methodName, Boolean sendToPipe) at System.Data.SqlClient.SqlCommand.ExecuteNonQuery() at Microsoft.SharePoint.Utilities.SqlSession.ExecuteNonQuery(SqlCommand command) at Microsoft.SharePoint.Upgrade.SPDatabaseSequence.ExecuteDataDefinitionMethodCore(SqlSession sqlSession, ISqlSession isqlSession, String sqlscript, SPSqlCommandFactory sqlcmdFactory, String[] strTables, Int32[] nThroughputs, SPLog logGlobal) at Microsoft.SharePoint.Upgrade.SPDatabaseSequence.ExecuteDataDefinitionMethod(SqlSession sqlSession, String sqlscript, SPLog log) at Microsoft.SharePoint.Upgrade.SPContentDatabaseSequence.Upgrade() at Microsoft.SharePoint.Upgrade.SPManager.Upgrade(Object o, Boolean bRecurse)

Please let me know if you have a solution. Thanks!

There should be a better log available than this. Have you checked the SQL log, Windows Event Viewer, SharePoint ULS logs? If so please update your question with more info. –  Alex Angas Aug 7 '09 at 8:39

Have you seen Joel Oleson's 5 Reasons NOT to Use In Place Upgrade?

Joel managed the biggest SharePoint Deployment, Microsoft's. I would take his word for it. There are plenty of third party tools to help you migrate data to a clean install.

Metalogix and Tzunami are the highest rated migration tools on SharePointReviews.com
