Mandatory upgrade loop after trying to upgrade for 1912LTSR CU5 to 2203LTSR CU1



Hi all,


Running into the "Mandatory Upgrade" loop in Citrix Studio when upgrading DDC's from version 1912LTSR CU5 to 2203LTSR CU1 in our test environment.


DDC's hosted on Windows Server 2016.
SQL backend running SQL server 2017.
Upgrade process did not throw any errors. Dialog box feedback shows all actions succeed during site upgrade.
Get-configinstalledDBversion shows 7.33 after the upgrade (7.33 for monitor and 7.31 for log).


Already had a look at some previous posts in the forum regarding the upgrade loop (booting one controller at a time etc) but no dice.


Kind regards,

strange. what localDB SQL running on DDC Server? must have upgraded to 2019 SQLLocalDB?





Indeed, we did get notification during our upgrade process about upgrading the LocalDB for local host cache. We tried the upgrade with and without upgrading the Localdb with the sources provided in \support\sqllocaldb folder of the 2203CU1 sources. Same result.
