I am facing an issue while upgrading ArcGIS Portal from 10.6.1 to 10.7.1. The problem is occurring when I ran the upgrade portal (trough tool available in installation directory and web interface of portal) with below error messages
Note that I already checked the permission of arcgisportal folder and the account through which portal service is running has write access on it.
Did you ever manage to solve this problem? It seems that I am running into the same issue while upgrading from 10.6.1 to 10.8. This had happend also when trying to upgrade from 10.6.1 to 10.7.1 but finally I sticked to 10.6.1 and hoped it would be better with 10.8...
ESRI support team was able to fix the issue using following steps
-In the arcgisportal/content/items folder, there was a kml folder, removed that folder from folder
-Ran the following workflow:
1.Stop Portal for ArcGIS service
2.Rename Content, db, and index folders inside C:/acrgisportal to to Content_old, db_old, index_old
3. Copy the Content, db and index folders from C:\arcgisportal\upgrade-backup\10.6 and place them into C:\arcgisportal
4. Clear browser cache and close browse
Run the setup again
-Site was successfully upgraded
this did the magic also for me! Thank you very much for your help.
I wonder now if something is missing in the portal because we copied the 10.6 content...? What did you do with the "_old"-folders?
I run into the same issue. However, I don't have a 'kml' folder, but I will try your workaround
Just one question about the workflow that fixed it: when you say "run the setup again": do you mean running again the Portal for ArcGIS installer? Or just redoing the Continue Portal Upgrade part in the browser?
Thank you and best regards
in the end, this workaround didn't help me because it brought the system (content) back to the state of 2018 when I had 10.6 installed. So I also suggest to open a case.
That's what I will also do in the end but not right now because of time reasons.
