Environment: Avalanche v6.1 with MS SQL 2012 on a separate Server (from Avalanche v5.3.xx), then upgrading to Avalanche v6.1 SP1.
Problem: No notification that there is a previous version of Avalanche while migrating.
Cause: No response from the Database on the other server.
Solution/Workaround: Always make sure you have a current backup of the Avalanche database, and the avapackages. Then continue with the install of the Avalanche v6.1 SP1.
