Hi,

today i tried to upgrade our staging system to new dvls.

to test real-world i upgraded it from dps 6.1.3.0 to 2019.1.17.0.

upgrade says ok, all seems fine,
but i cannot login - with any user, even dps-integrated-users
tried web-login and rdm 2019.1.35.0 and rdm 2019.1.25.0

errors appear like this one:

Hello,

With authentication type have you used to login on your DPS instance? Is it Domain or Custom?

Could you please send us the DPS Diagnostic report using Send Diagnostic to Support from the DPS Console?

Best regards,

Hello,

After a discussion with an engineer this afternoon, they will fix this issue. But in the meantime, could you please run the following SQL statement and let me know if you get some records. According to the engineer, it seems that some records in the Connections table has a RepositoryID set to Null.

Select ID,
Name,
RepositoryID
From dbo.Connections
Where RepositoryID is null


Best regards,

Hello Erica

I have the same issue.

With the SQL query, I received 2869 rows where the RepositoryID is set to Null.

I did a restore to version 6.1.3.0, where it's working fine again.

Thank you.

Best regards, John

Hi Erica,

i'm already OoO but to add another hint:
my second staging sys was running 6.1.3.0 updated to 2019.1.12.0 and all was fine.

so i think 2019.1.17 breaks something ...

Best Regards
Markus

Hello,

We have been able to reproduce this issue internally and it's definitely related to the RepositoryID column that contains Null value on some records. This problem seems to be cause by old SQL databases that were created before the introduction of Vaults (formerly known as Repository).

As of now, here is the fix to put the right information in the RepositoryID column in the Connections table. Please make a backup of the SQL database before running the following query.

UPDATE Connections
SET RepositoryID = '00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000'
WHERE RepositoryID IS NULL

After running the script, you will need to recycle IIS to be sure that the server cache is up to date and doesn't contain any Null value anymore.

If you are using RDM, please refresh the local cache file with CTRL+F5.

Hello,

Thank you for your feedback Markus.

@everyone, we have made a fix internally and the next DPS version will not require to manually fix the information in the database.
