Hi Lulia,

Somehow there is already a value in the in the cwd_application table, then when the setup wizard tries to add it, a unique constraint is violated:

Caused by: com.microsoft.sqlserver.jdbc.SQLServerException: Violation of UNIQUE KEY constraint 'UK_esg7ywl12bt4wt5h1ka27m6u3'. Cannot insert duplicate key in object 'dbo.cwd_application'. The duplicate key value is (crowd-embedded)

Since this is a new installation I recommend shutting down Confluence, dropping the database, creating a fresh database and then running the installation again. 

I look forward to hearing how it goes, or any follow up questions.

Thanks,

Ann

Getting the same error. Aa part of migrating confluence 5.10.0 to 6.2.3 in linux.

 

when we mapped the fresh installed confluence instance to the restored DB, first it asked to overwrite the tables, we proceed. and now in next step, it is not allowing us to create admin user and getting the same error as mentioned above. We cant go with fresh DB now as its not handled by us. How we can troubleshoot the issue.

It sounds like the database permissions for the user connecting were wrong.

Your best option is to drop all the tables, then correct all the permissions, ensuring the user has access to do all actions inside its database.
