I too am getting the same error. They had me check the port number that SQL is using under core/config. Mine was correct as it should be 1281. Have a case open with them now.
Simply Java error will not give any clue.
Please share the complete McAfee logs folder (\Documents and settings\Logged in users\Local settings\Temp)
John (and anyone reading this thread),
Please use utmost caution in sharing/posting your install log files when you use a debug output setting of 2 or higher (default is 0). Those install logs are likely to contain plain text user names and passwords when set to that level of debugging.
If anyone within mcafee would like to take a look at my logs, ref:
I apoloigze, this SR is for different issue not for ePO upgrade.
It's about MRA: Threat download fails with the error retrieving license.
I'd recommend you submit a new service request for your 46 upgrade issue as the SR number you provided is for a 4.5 issue.
You will need to provide Support with the install logs from the failed 4.6 upgrade, located in the Temp folder of the user who installed ePO (easiest to find by opening run box, typing "%tmp%" as the location of these files differs depending on OS) plus the contents of the DB\Logs and Server\Logs.
I also wanted to follow-up with an additional comment about the debug log levels. The "3" value is really intended for development purposes; a value of 2 is sufficient for any user install debugging. When you set the install to debugoutput=2 or higher, it is expected behavior to see LaunchAppAndWait messages as they are a part of the debugging -- in most cases they display for script pause/sleep purposes.
