I recently downloaded the MS on-premise installer for 9.0 (just released a few days ago), and I configured a new VM for the server requirements. The installation went fine, and I can create new organizations with no issue, but I cannot import (upgrade) any of the organizations from 8.2. Here are some of the errors:
Error| Upgrade Organization with Id=1121758c-044b-e411-919c-00155d59ba12 failed with Exception:
System.Exception: Error.ActionFailed Microsoft.Crm.Tools.Admin.UpgradeDatabaseAction ---> Microsoft.Crm.CrmException: Error in Action: Bin\Microsoft.Crm.DataUpgrade.dll:TrackCustomDatabaseObjects on attempt 3.

Any news regarding this hotfix some people have been getting from Microsoft? I would love to get my hands on it.
I have now installed the hotfix (126.96.36.19941) and created a new Vanilla Organization on 188.8.131.52, backed up the MSCRM database and restored it in the SQL on the new server (184.108.40.20641). Then I did a 'Import Organization', but still getting the same error message while the Organization is upgraded:
at Microsoft.Crm.Tools.Admin.ImportOrganizationInstaller.ImportAndUpgrade(OrganizationInfo organizationInfo) ---> System.Exception: Error.ActionFailed Microsoft.Crm.Tools.Admin.UpgradeDatabaseAction ---> Microsoft.Crm.CrmException: Error in Action: Bin\Microsoft.Crm.SE.DatabaseActions.dll:Execute on attempt 3. System.ArgumentNullException: Value cannot be null.
Update: Base Language for the Organization is Norwegian. Doing the same above procedure with Base Language English, it works. Language issues?
I'm getting the same error when upgrading a french language organization from 8.2.3 (and 8.2.2).
I was wondering if it had something to do with the organization language and based on your response I think that may just be the case:
Just a quick update. We are currently working with our partner to help us get through the upgrade errors, but they are having the same issues - the upgrade fails every time. Hopefully MS will have a resolution for this soon.
Install Microsoft® SQL Server® 2012 SP4 Feature Pack on Windows Server 2016 => ENU\x64\SharedManagementObjects.msi and ENU\x64\SQLSysClrTypes.msi
Installing these pack solved the error.
That SQL Feature Pack does not help when you have another language than English on the Organization. I am trying to upgrade an Organization with Norwegian language and still having problems.
I have also registered this particular issue on Microsoft's GitHub: github.com/.../859
Would appreciate if more people would write a message in this GitHub post about what seems to be a language issue during upgrade.
Hi MLarsen , I've installed English setup(CRM9.0-Server) then I've imported Turkish based organization to CRM, no error received . I've done these step:
Install Microsoft® SQL Server® 2012 SP4 Feature Pack on Windows Server 2016(Dynamics Server) => ENU\x64\SharedManagementObjects.msi and ENU\x64\SQLSysClrTypes.msi
installed English Dynamics CRM v9 Setup
Install Dynamics CRM v9 Turkish Language Pack
Install Update 0.2 For Dynamics 365(CRM9.0-Server-KB4458112-ENU-Amd64)
I did the steps Shawn said on the link(community.dynamics.com/.../914247) - Change ServerRelease.xml
Import 220.127.116.11 Turkish Organization
Import organization was completed successfully.
Moving the ServerRelease.xml from the 1033 folder to my language 1044 folder helped. I also had installed the Update 0.2 as mentioned. Now I can upgrade my Organizations to version 9.
Update 0.3 is out.
It seems not to help to "file not found error" so you still have to install CRL Types and Shared Management Objects manually, but I managed to upgrade Finnish base language organization from 8.2.3 to 18.104.22.168.
Yeah, my import finally succeeded too. After installing 22.214.171.124
I had the same problem. Did you roll out a new Azure SQL 2016 SP2 VM as db server? It seems the SDK 2012 is no longer part of the installation in Azure (and needed for the upgrade). After installing the SQL Server SDK Assemblies for 2012, the import of the 8.2.2 org went fine for me. Please download and install the packages below on your sql server:
1. Install Microsoft SQL Server System CLR Types.(X86 Package,X64 Package)
2. Install Microsoft SQL Server Shared Management Objects.(X86 Package,X64 Package)
Don't forget to reboot!
Hope this will fix your problem!
if you encounter errors, please provide the feedback to below article. I believed Microsoft will monitor this and able to give you guys answer quickly.
A few notes which I hope would be of use to you.
After going through many cycles of imports, I noted that at times the import log stated it was unable to roll-back the database to the original state.
This resulted in subsequent import attempts encountering index dependency errors even on a blank/vanilla 8.2.3.
So please start afresh.
1) Restore your database from Version 8.2.3 (Microsoft recommended)
2) Make the XML config change to comment out the marketingsalespatch msdynce_MarketingSales (not Microsoft supported yet)
3) Remove the Full Text index (Microsoft supported incident 118113019400157)
5) Add the Full Text index back
Test to see if this works for you. It has worked on an import of a blank/vanilla 8.2.3. I am presently trialing the process on a production import.
Simple fix on the APP server install
SQLSYSClrTypes.msi and SharedManagementObject.MSI
older DYNAMICS365 Organization version need it.
right away was fixed!
hope it helps others
Delete the full text indexing from the following tables:
To remove a full-text index from a table
In Object Explorer, right-click the table that has the full-text index that you want to delete.
Select Delete Full-Text index.
When prompted, click OK to confirm that you want to delete the full-text index.
We too had faced most of the problems highlighted in this thread like dlls refering to old versions, indexing, dropping stored procedures etc.
But now we successfully imported 8.2.3 CRM organization to CRM 9 by doing below steps.
1. Disabled full text search in crm settings area
2. Wait for 24 hrs
3. Take database backup and restore
4. Import Org in CRM 9
Hope this helps some of you.
