    Unable to Upgrade Database Component 6.5 to 6.8

      Foundstone database component does not pass the upgrade/install self-test. All other components are on an application server while the dB is on a SQL box. We've placed the upgrade/install on the SQL box, run the agent, select Database only, and run it. It perofrms some tasks then a pop-up box appears saying TCP/IP connectivity error and upgrade/install halts. Current version (6.5) scan engine and db work fine. Any ideas? What specifically is this self-check looking for? If we knew that, we might be able to address it on the SQL box.

          Are you using the default DB instance?  If not you may need to specify it to the installer by following this KB:




          or is this SQL Express?  These are the requirements for using SQL Express (in the install guide):


          Enabling TCP/IP

          By default, TCP/IP is disabled in Microsoft SQL Express 2005. TCP/IP must be

          enabled for Foundstone to function properly.




          Open the SQL Server 2005 Surface Area Configuration wizard



          Start | All Programs | Microsoft SQL Server 2005 | Configuration

          Tools | SQL Server 2005 Surface Area Configuration








          Select Surface Area Configuration for Services and Connections.




          Select Remote Connections under Database Engine.




          Select Local and remote connections and select a TCP/IP option.




          Select OK to save the settings.




          Restart the Database Engine service for the change to take affect.


          I hope that helps.

            We followed the points/information in the linked KB article without success. The SQL Express information does not apply as we're not using it.


            Any other thoughts?

              Off the top of my head I don't have any other suggestions. I would open up a service request so we can take a better look at your system. This isn't an issue that we have seen before.
