Error Upgrading SDE to 10.3.1 from 10.2.2

We receive a "Could not pause" error after running the Upgrade Geodatabase tool to upgrade our geodatabase to 10.3.1 from 10.2.2.


We have ran the pre-requisite already, despite it saying in there that we have not (this is not an error).

Despite that, right-clicking the geodatabase shows we are at 10.3.1, however, it tells us we could upgrade database internals.


Any thoughts?

I don't know if the ESRI enterprise geodatabase folks that frequent GeoNet have the opportunity to peruse it over the weekends, but I'll add some of them here just in case so they have a better chance of noticing this question:

Create a new connection to the SDE master Schema using only the TNSName in the Instance parameter and then try the upgrade. Check if this helps.

The error message indicates you have user-schema geodatabase that has not been upgraded.

Once the master is upgraded, the user-schema GDBs should immediately be upgraded to the

same release level.

We just had to run the post-installation and it fixed our problem.  It was something we forgot to do.
