You cannot resume setup by performing the action "BuildtoBuildUpgrade"
I recently made 2 important decisions regarding my test environment:
- Move all the VMs to Hyper-V;
- Install Exchange 2007 SP1.
Moving to Hyper-V is not that hard:
- Remove the VM Additions;
- Create a new Hyper-V VM using the previous VHD.
My problems started when installing Exchange Server 2007 Service Pack 1. After I kicked the SP1 Setup, I got a warning that I should first install .NET Framework 2.0 SP1 (how could I disregard my own recommendations?), so I stopped the setup process.
After installing the required update, I resumed the SP1 setup, but now I got the following error:
Setup previously failed while performing the action "install". You cannot resume setup by performing the action "BuildtoBuildUpgrade"
Microsoft Knowledge Article KB947281 describes this problem and has a resolution for it. Unfortunately the article is a little bit incomplete. It tells you to delete the Watermark and Action entries from any of these Registry keys:
But for my particular case the Watermark and Action entries were located at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Exchange\v8.0\UnifiedMessagingRole.
So, the right solution should be to check for those entries at any of these keys:
