Problem upgrading from jira 4.1 to 4.4.5

Hello,

I created a new install of JIRA 4.4.5 and backed-up the db to the xml file.

JIRA 4.4.5 starts ok pointing to new empty db.

I made sure my osuser.xml file was in the new JIRA folder before the restore of the xml.

Stil lafter the upgrade i get "JIRA is unable to migrate the User Directory configuration because the osuser.xml file does not contain a recognised configuration."

Already looked at JRA-24161 and JRA-29071 cases and still not working.

 

Here's my osuser.xml

<opensymphony-user>

    <authenticator class="com.opensymphony.user.authenticator.SmartAuthenticator" />

<provider class="com.opensymphony.user.provider.ldap.LDAPCredentialsProvider">
        <property name="java.naming.factory.initial">com.sun.jndi.ldap.LdapCtxFactory</property>
        <property name="java.naming.provider.url">ldap://x.x.x.x:389</property>
        <property name="searchBase">DC=mydc,DC=local</property>
        <property name="uidSearchName">sAMAccountName</property>

     <property name="java.naming.security.principal">cn=admin,cn=users,dc=mydc,dc=local</property>
     <property name="java.naming.security.credentials">Password</property>

        <property name="exclusive-access">true</property>
    </provider>
<provider class="com.atlassian.jira.user.osuser.JiraOFBizCredentialsProvider">
        <property name="exclusive-access">true</property>
    </provider>

    <provider class="com.atlassian.jira.user.osuser.JiraOFBizProfileProvider">
        <property name="exclusive-access">true</property>
    </provider>

    <provider class="com.atlassian.jira.user.osuser.JiraOFBizAccessProvider">
        <property name="exclusive-access">true</property>
    </provider>
    
    <provider class="com.atlassian.core.ofbiz.osuser.CoreOFBizCredentialsProvider">
        <property name="exclusive-access">true</property>
    </provider>

    <provider class="com.atlassian.jira.user.osuser.JiraOFBizProfileProvider">
        <property name="exclusive-access">true</property>
    </provider>

    <provider class="com.atlassian.jira.user.osuser.JiraOFBizAccessProvider">
        <property name="exclusive-access">true</property>
    </provider>
</opensymphony-user>

Any help will greatly be appreciated, i have to upgrade to 6.4.2 and need it to work in 4.4.5 first according to docs.

Have you gone through the upgrade guide for all intermediate versions?

JIRA underwent major changes regarding user directories in 4.3 and i am assuming you may be affected by that. 

Go through this link again and doublecheck if you have performed all steps in here
