Upgrade from 3.3.3 to 3.5.15 fails

Hi there,

we are trying to upgrade our Confluence-Ssystems to 4.2 and therefor we have to upgrade to 3.5 before...

That upgrade fails with the following error:

Any ideas on this?

Kind regards

I was able to resolve this problem:

I changed the groupSearchFilter to:

<groupSearchFilter>objectClass=Group)</groupSearchFilter>

Than the upgrade process starts...
Strange behavoiur but it works...

Kind regards

Just a head's Up: You might want to look at going to 3.5.17

We did an upgrade from 3.3.3 to 3.5.15 and then tried to go to 4.3.7 and we had no end of trouble, even losing quite a bit of data. By going to 3.5.17, no such problems existed.

Could be specific to our installation, but just wanted to offer a suggestion.

Hi Robert,

we had the same problem with 3.5.17

But it worked with my resoltuion to clear the user- and group-search filter.
