Sophos Upgrade from 5.5.0 to 5.5.2

Hi,

I have recently upgraded from the Sophos Enterprise Console 5.5.0 to 5.5.2 and I got an error Unable to install Sophos Credential Store Service and failed to upgrade to 5.5.2.

The SEC 5.5.0 is still there. The Under Programs and Features I find the Sophos Management Console and Sophos Management Server are still with version 5.5.0.

Could you please let me know how to fix this error and what I will do next to complete an upgrade to 5.5.2

Your assistance on this request would be extremely appreciated.

Thank you.

Kind regards,

T Doan

    Hi Christian,

    I did as what you mentioned.

    1)   I uninstalled Sophos Management Database version 5.5.2 under Programs and Features

    2)   I ran setup.exe from C:\sec_552\ServerInstaller\ folder

    Unfortunately, I got another error "The Installer detected the following errors that must be corrected before installation". "The server cannot be upgraded. The current credentials do not permit access to the SOPHOS552 database."

    I still see all database of version 5.5.2 in C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\...\MSSQL\DATA folder. Although I uninstalled Sophos Management Database version 5.5.2

    Do you think I need to install Sophos Management Database version 5.5.2 before running setup.exe ?

    Could you please tell me what I can do next to fix this and complete an upgrade?

    Thank you and look forward to your response.

     

    Kind regards,

    T Doan

    Hello T Doan,

    I still see all database of version 5.5.2
    this is expected, uninstalling the Database Component does not drop the associated databases.
    [Do] I need to install Sophos Management Database version 5.5.2?
    you had to uninstall it because otherwise setup.exe will complain that the components have different versions.

    I got another error
    Could you post the associated Sophos_bootstrapper log?

    Hello T Doan,

    only the last highlighted block is significant (the Credential Store Service is new with 5.5.2 thus it's ok it is not found; when the database "seems" to be remote - i.e. the Database Component is not installed - it browses for SQL instances, normally does not find one that responds, and consequently encounters the Could not open). 

    The Failed to create impersonation token is strange though, at least I could not yet come up with an explanation. Is SEC 5.5.0 still running? It uses the same credentials/account to access the same instance. So if the account works with SEC it should also do so with the Installer.

    Hi Christian,

    There are some points that I really cannot understand.

    1)  The SEC version 5.5.0 is up and running.

    2)   The database is the same in PC that is installed SEC 5.5.0. It is not a remote database as the log mentioned.

    As you mentioned It uses the same credentials/account to access the same instance. So if the account works with SEC it should also do so with the Installer. 

    I agree with you this it should get the same instance because the SEC 5.5.0 is working well.

    I really do not know what I can do next to fix these issues. If you have any idea please advise...

    Thank you for your help. Much appreciated!!!

    Kind regards,

    T Doan

    Hello T Doan,

    the database is considered a remote database when the Database Component is not installed, regardless of where it actually resides.

    Unfortunately I can't test this scenario (especially as the problem might be related to the server's role as DC). Thinking about it - no Database Component is installed at the moment. If you reinstall the 5.5.0 Database Component using the MSI from the \sec_550 folder as per the article (don't forget the CREATE_DATABASES=0). Afterwards check that all components are 5.5.0. You should then be able to to upgrade to 5.5.2.

    Hi Christian,

    Just to let you know the support team solved my problem as follows

    The SEC 5.5.2 has a new component Credential Store. I am not sure SEC 5.5. 1 has this component or not. Because I upgraded from SEC 5.5.0 to 5.5.2

    1)  You will need to check "NT SERVICE\ALL SERVICES" from the GPO that is applied to the server then to Local Policies> User Rights Assignment> Log on as a Service. If it does not exist

          then you need to add NT SERVICE\ALL SERVICES to the group policy. This will  avoid getting any error while upgrading.

    2)  If you got the following errors while upgrading.

         The server cannot be upgraded. The current credentials do not permit access to the SOPHOS552 database or The Enterprise Console components installed on this computer are not the           same version.... You need to do

         a)  Check if the SOPHOS552 database currently exists on the server by running the command in command prompt: sqlcmd -E -S .\SOPHOS -q "SELECT NAME FROM sys.databases"

         b)   When this is complete, check Add/Remove Programs and make sure there are currently no 5.5.2 components on the server, uninstall them if they exist.       

         c)  If  the Database Sophos552 exists then you go to the Administrator command prompt and enter the following commands to drop the database Sophos552

              sqlcmd -E -S .\Sophos

              DROP DATABASE Sophos552

              Go

              Quit

        d)  Run the command in administrative command prompt to install the 5.5.2 database component without creating databases (Change database_username and domain to the                          your DB user):

             msiexec /i"C:\sec_552\ServerInstaller\Database64.msi" DATABASE_SERVERNAME="(local)\SOPHOS" DATABASE_USERNAME="SophosManagement"         

             DATABASE_USERNAMEDOMAIN="NTDOMAIN" INSTALLDIR="C:\Program Files (x86)\Sophos" CREATE_DATABASES=0

        e)  Now you can run setup.exe from the C:\sec_552 folder. All is fine after upgrading. It worked for my case.

    I hope these would help someone who has the same problems as my case.

    Thank you.

    Kind regards,

    T Doan
