Today I updated my lab from 1810 to 1902.
I noticed that when I set off the installation and monitored the process it seemed to stop on the prerequisites check.
I looked in the CMUpdate.log and discovered it was just stuck in a loop, with a constant “Sleeping for 600 Seconds message” (I forgot to screen shot it)
“Waiting for changes to the “D:\Program Files\Microsoft Configuration Manager\inboxes\cmupdate.box” directories, updates will be polled in 600 seconds…“ to be precise.
I know my forest functional level is set to Windows Server 2016 & my SQL version is 2016 so I think I’ll start by looking at this. I start by going here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-gb/sccm/core/servers/deploy/install/list-of-prerequisite-checks and looking for “SQL Native Client… I find this…
Where it describes the versions required, my version isn’t correct.
So, a quick google and I find this: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=50402 and when I check out the details of the installer it checks out with regards to version numbers:
I go ahead and install that get this message…
Once back up I set off the SCCM Upgrade again, I follow it in the details and keep an eye on the logs…. SQL Native Version now checks out….
And the upgrade to SCCM 1902 completes successfully.
Thank you for reading.
