Overview

NPM upgrade is unable to finish and you get the following error message in the Configuration Wizard: 

Backup, file manipulation operations (such as ALTER DATABASE ADD FILE) and encryption changes on a database must be serialized. Reissue the statement after the current backup or file manipulation operation is completed.

Environment:

  • All versions of NPM
  • Evaluation copy of NTA 3.11 and previously installed versions
  • NTA 4.1.2 Flow Storage Database still has old data from separate instance that was using a different SQL database. 

Resolution:

Reslution 1:

 

1. Login to the Flow Storage Database Server.

2. Create a brand new directory for the NTA Flow Storage Database. 

3. Install NTA on the primary server. 

 

 

Resolution 2:

 

1. Login to the Orion server as a local server administrator.

2. Go to Start > Control Panel > Uninstall a program > SolarWinds Netflow Traffic Analyzer > click uninstall.

Ensure no backups are running on the Db while the upgrade is running
