    Issue while running metadata manger

    abr Apprentice

      Anyone come across this error message when running the metadata manager to upgrade from 7.3.2 to 7.5?


        <ErrorMessage>Object reference not set to an instance of an object.</ErrorMessage> 
        <StackTrace>at Touchpaper.Framework.Data.Metadata.Internal.AttributeType.get_ForeignKeyColumns() at Touchpaper.Framework.Data.Metadata.Tools.ClassBuilder.GenerateObjectColumnsAndForeignKeys(MetadataCatalog classMetadata, IDataSourceDetails ds, Module module, ClassType classType, AttributeType attType, DatabaseTable table) at Touchpaper.Framework.Data.Metadata.Tools.ClassBuilder.GenerateTable(MetadataCatalog classMetadata, DataSource ds, Module module, ClassType classType) at Touchpaper.Framework.Data.Metadata.Tools.ClassBuilder.GenerateDatabaseSchema(MetadataCatalog classMetadata, DataSourceProvider defaultProvider, String defaultConnectString, Boolean addToClassMetadata) at Touchpaper.Framework.Data.Metadata.Manager.MetadataManager.DoConversion(MetadataCatalog metadata) at Touchpaper.Framework.Data.Metadata.Manager.MetadataManager.SetupDatabase(MetadataCatalog metadata)</StackTrace> 


      Thanks in advance,

          Your safest bet is to contact your support provider or local LANDesk office.  They should ask for a copy of the database and work through this sort of issue for you.  For 7.5 there are some specific steps in the upgrade guide you have to carry out in the pre-7.5 environment before you upgrade to 7.5 and run MDM.  These are looking to see if you have used accessed the licenese audit item business object.  But if you have done those steps, I'd get ready to zip up that database and send it off
