I am upgrading from SDL Tridion 2013 SP1 HR1 to SLD Web 8.1.1 release within a clustered env.

  1. Node 1 upgrade in Acceptance has been successful and is now considered "upgraded'.

  2. Node 2 upgrade failed due to CMEnvID error below.

I believe this is a known defect on 8.1.1 installer, which got fixed in 8.5.

The work around involves using a different Topology Manager database for the 2nd install, then change the 2nd server to use the first one (and delete the second one).

One has to wonder though... why aren't you deploying 8.5 rather than 8.1.1?

  • Okay. I will try now Jan 27, 2017 at 20:18

    That worked @Nuno.. we started this upgrade process prior to the 8.5 release months ago Jan 27, 2017 at 20:57
