Upgradebootstrap has failed with unknown exception

I'm stumped.  Running SharePoint 2013 over Hyper-V with the following topology:
1 Database server
3 Application/WFE servers (1 for Central Admin, some BI stuff, 1 for Search, 1 for Project Server)
It's a very basic test farm, running 2013 with SP1, only one site collection on port 80.  Trying to set up Project Server on a separate server from the rest of my test farm.  Installed Project Server, no problems.  Got the "Failed to
initiate the upgrade sequence" error.  Discovered I needed to install Project Server SP1 so did that, no problems.  Still getting the error.  The logs give me nothing to do on, other that there's an SPUpgradeException error thrown, that's
Anybody know what to do next?  Thanks

Tried that.  Now the upgrade wizard won't run at all.  It says that the other two servers are missing the Microsoft Project Server 2013 installs altogether.  I tried reinstalling them without success (because they are already there, according
to the installer).  I then uninstalled Project Server on the Search and Project server boxes and ran the upgrade on the Central Admin box, which then surprisingly worked - except it left Central Admin off so I restarted that.  Somehow, along the
way, both of the other boxes were removed from the farm.  Then I tried reinstalling Project Server on the Project Server box along with SP1 and reran the wizard but the wizard acted as if the box had never been on the farm so it did a complete "Add
me to the farm" configuration but it DID work.  Next I added the Search server and the same thing happened, had to re-add it to the farm but it worked too.  I'll have to tweak my search service to get it running on the search server again, but
otherwise everything looks as it should, including, shockingly enough, Project Server.
(Here's an interesting error - at one point I ran the wizard, got a "can't locate master database error", clicked on Advanced Settings button and got an unhandled exception crash - I think it might have been a timeout error originally).
The key takeaway for me is you have to use all the exact same components (OS, installs and patches) when adding servers AND always apply in the order you added them or you are just asking for a resume-updating moment.  Just glad I got to learn this
on a test platform.  SharePoint is the "SharePointiest" piece of software I have ever run across.

  • Error in upgrading SharePoint Server 2013 with SP1 : "Task upgradebootstrap has failed with an unknown exception"

    I has successfully setup new Dev ENV of SarePoint server 2013 in VMware with 2 servers running om OS: win server 2008 R2 Ent SP1, AD + Central Admin Application Server.
    After that the configuration of SharePoint App and WorkFlow Manager completed as well and many projects run perfectly,
    And after installing SP1 of SharePoint server 2013, and running the SharePiont Configuration wizard to complete the configuration of the SharePoint Farm the Upgrade has fialed on Step2 with the following Error from the Log file:
    Task upgradebootstrap has failed with an unknown exception

    Is there any solution to my problem with SharePoint server 2013 SP1, this supposed not to cause any bug in stable environment.

    Hi Daniel,
    Thanks for replying on my post, actually I have downloaded the  kb2880552 sp1 for
    enterprise edition from the link 
    https://support.microsoft.com/kb/2880552 , and this has been experienced with me before since I had my Standalone Dev machine first installation, and the issue only occurred when the SP1 installed though.
    Anyway, I've tried to install CU Nov 2013 http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2889944
    but still facing the same issue,
    I run the Setup of SP2013 from the CD to repair the SharePoint and error message appears,
    The issue related to "Microsoft.Office.TranslationServices" is also related to running
    the repair successfully which leads to the same error message above.
    The Version of SP 2013 from the program file is : 15.0.4571.1502
    The Update snapshot is as below:
    Is there a problem with my sharepoint media file?

    Some additional inf.
    anyway you can disable this rule/monitor as no control from monitoring solution in that case. Or try to rewrite the same monitor...
    The problem in your case is when function tries to get Max Server Memory MB by connecting to master DB, but you can replace it with performance counter like Target Server Memory (KB)...
    just see the function main in StolenServerMemory2008.ps1 and what you need to replace
    $api = New-Object -comObject "MOM.ScriptAPI"
    $bag = $api.CreatePropertyBag()
    $msg = [Environment]::NewLine
    $err = [Environment]::NewLine
    #try {

  • ARV_BC_XMB_DEL Fails With Raise Exception

    Hi All,
        I have scheduled the archiving job in PI 7.0 through sxmb_adm -> Schedule Archiving.
        After scheduling I can see two jobs successfully released
                1. ARV_BC_XMB_DEL - This job uses the program "RSXMB_DELETE_ARCHIVED_MESSAGES"
                2. ARV_BC_XMB_WRP - This uses the program "RSXMB_ARCHIVE_MESSAGES"
        The second job (which is archiving of xml messages) is running good but the First Job "ARV_BC_XMB_DEL" fails with a
        "ABAP/4 processor: RAISE_EXCEPTION."
       Both the jobs are running fine on DEV & QA systems.
       But the first job fails on Pre-Prod & Prd (which are high available systems).
       Any hints/help on why its failing with an exception on Pre-PRD & PRD ?

    Hi Prakash,
    assuming your intrante sites are crawled by a crawler profile "for Web-RM" the most common things you may still need to do are:
    - In the crawler parameters, Mark "Follow Links (or Redirects on Web-Sites)", if your start page(s)
    - On the intranet sites, check if they use robot information that says "noindex" or "nofollow" and possibly change that
    If that does not help...sorry, it's OSS again.

    We are using input file component to upload an excel file and read it. Sometimes we are getting error - " A Connection to the server has failed.

    there must be a stack trace in the log files that gives you more information about this. Chances are the browser closes the socket connection, which you can verify by using another browser and avoiding e.g. VPN connect for testing. Another test to perform is to try and see if this works for the use case in case you sit on a known and already fixed problem

  • Task Sequence has failed with error code: 0x80070570

    I've created task sequence for Windows XP OS Deployment. WinPE boot image loads successfully, Partitions are formatted successfully too. But during "Applying image 1 from volume C:\" I receive following error:

    What I need to do? Any ideas? (My computer has following details: ASUS P5KSE motherboard, Core 2 Duo, SATA HDD, Atheros L1 adapter)

    No, a build and capture task sequence automates the build of the image removing any and all human intervention so that rebuilding or refreshing an image becomes a simple matter. Building images by actually manually installing Windows is anti-IT.
    File corruption can be caused by many, many things; e.g., anti-virus, physical disk errors, network transmit errors, etc.

I have also attached a screen capture of the error and after the authenitcation logs change to autheorization only succeed after a repeated trying. Based on user feedback for failed login, When guest user gets conected to wirless and login in to guest  portal with credential after putting credential  then its again redirect  to same login page wihout successful login prompt; not too sure if there may be any settings that may be looked into and the reason for the unknown exception error?
    Any suggestion/recommendation is appreciated.

    Hi Tarik,
    Not too sure if i understand on the static hostname for redirection; there are 2 PSNs for the deployment however they are acting as active/secondary for the wireless (This is done from the wlan on the wlc to set the primary/secondary radius server). From the guest redirection; it is always hitting the primary radius server defined on the wlan/wlc. The ise is running version 1.1.4 with patch 8 applied.
    Not  too sure if there may be any settings that may be looked into for the guest authentication/redirection and the reason for the unknown exception error?

    PS: patch manager was installed on SunOS 5.10.1 then the machine upgraded to SunOS 5.11

    probably java interface (updatemanager) uses smpatch at backend and may be some libraries it uses upgraded with system upgrade. the smpatch command works well and does not support list & getdocument commands.

  • My storage drive has failed with my itunes libary.

    I have an external 360gb sata hard drive ina caddy, it has failed, for ref I actually ordered the same drive again to see if I could swap out the control board and get access to all my data but its gone.
    I have quite a bit of stuff on my ipod touch 64gb (its the latest one).
    Im just woundering were I stand now, can I import from the ipod to the computer, its not a major major headache if I cant, I have a bunch of apps from the last two months I bought from the apple store.
    Whats the best thing to do, wipe the hand held and just start again?
