Troubleshooting Errors Found During a Request an Upgrade or Test Upgrade

When you perform a request an upgrade or test upgrade operation, preupgrade checks run on your CommServe database to determine your readiness for an upgrade. If a preupgrade check fails, the error message also displays a workaround or recommendation to fix the error.

The following table displays the most common error messages found in the Preupgrade Readiness Report or in the log generated during a test upgrade:

Note: The table does not include all the errors. If you do not find a particular error in the table, refer to the report or log file.
