Updated July 10, 2017

Overview

The following error is displayed in the configuration wizard when upgrading from IPAM 4.3.2 to 4.5.0:

Website configuration failed:

Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation.

Environment

  • IPAM 4.3.2
  • IPAM 4.5.0
  • NPM 12.1

Cause 

The following log error indicates that an earlier IPAM version is still installed:

ERROR ConfigurationProgressScene - Exception while configuring plugins.
System.TypeInitializationException: The type initializer for 'SolarWinds.Orion.Core.Common.ModulesCollector' threw an exception. ---> System.IO.FileNotFoundException: Could not load file or assembly 'file:///C:\Program Files (x86)\SolarWinds\Orion\IPAM\SolarWinds.IPAM.Strings.dll' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified. 

Resolution

  1. Remove earlier versions of IPAM that are still installed.
  2. Remove the backup file C:\SolarWinds\Orion\Modules\ipam.xml. if it exists in that directory.
  3. Install IPAM 4.5.0 or higher.
  4. Run the configuration wizard.

Note: In some cases, it is necessary to check in C:\Program Files (x86)\SolarWinds\Orion\Information Service\3.0\Schemas\ for a backup XML file.
