When running the Migration Tool I get the following error directly after selecting the 4.62 and 5 R2 web.config: "Validation of configuration files failed. Target errors: Target site failed to respond, reason: Unable to connect to the remote server"
I'm following the migration tool tech note (http://world.episerver.com/en/Documentation/Items/Tech-Notes/EPiServer-CMS-5/EPiServer-CMS-5-R2/EPiServer-CMS-Migration-Tool-11/) and can't find anything helping my case there, not in the migration tool faq (http://world.episerver.com/en/FAQ/Items/EPiServer-CMS-Migration-Tool/) either.
Anyone got any ideas? Help appreciated!
The error seem so point to the target site not running. Can you surf to the 5 R2 site?
Alas, I've only tried the migration on my dev XP machine so far.
I'll run a migration test on a Win Server and see what happens and get back, if for no other reason than for the sake of documentation. Thanks for the input!
Running the migration tool on W2k3, SQLS2k5, 4.62 and 5 site, gives me a runtime error when the migration starts (that is, after selecting web.configs etc):
System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object. at EPiServer.Migration.LanguageSetting.GetLanguageIds() ...
Hello again, just letting you know that migrating using XP worked just fine. Thanks for the help.
Im also keeps running into the same problem during my migration.
Anyone got any idea?
* Yes Im running the 5R2 site.
* Yes I can surf to it.
* Yes Im using XP, SQL2005, VS2005/2008, .net3.5, etc....
When you setup your 5R2 site you uses port:17000
in webconfig under <sitesettings> replace siteUrl="http://yourComputerName:17000/"
Anyway it solved my problems, hope its helping you aswell.
