Re: Database Upgrade

Any chance you can restore the database with the backup performed immediately prior to the upgrade?


The error "Invalid object name 'ServerDBVersion'." indicates that the upgrader can't find ServerDBVersion and the error is thrown back by the SQL server.


Have you attempted an upgrade previously that failed?


Do you have any other problems with the server?


I'd recommend giving RIM a call and opening a case on this.

If you've found a solution through a post; please mark it as a solution.
If someone's was particularly helpful, give them kudo's!.
