Error in Invoke-NAVApplicationDatabaseConversion for Azure SQL

ChenjeraiChenjerai MaltaMember Posts: 5

I am upgrading BC15 database to BC17. I am getting the following error when I run the Invoke-NAVApplicationDatabaseConversion command:

Invoke-NAVApplicationDatabaseConversion : The database create operation failed due to the following error returned by SQL
Execution Timeout Expired. The timeout period elapsed prior to completion of the operation or the server is not responding.
The statement has been terminated.

I can access the Azure SQL db from the same machine (using ssms and powerhsell command when I am working in BC15). Has anyone ever faced this issue? Any suggestions on how to resolve it?

    Hi Chenjerai

    Did you ever find a solution for this?

    I am getting the same error when trying to upgrade fra BC15 to BC18 also on Azure SQL. My database is only 546 MB. I have previously upgraded successfully from BC17 to BC18 on a much larger database.

    Best regards

    I tried running the same command again and again while searching for a solution. The 7th time I ran it the conversion completed successfully. Not much of a solution, but possibly helpful for some?
