java.lang.IllegalStateException while creating a fresh database for jira 6.1

Hi folks,

i try to set up a new jira 6.1 instance war in an allready running tomcat6.

All works fine until the setup try to create the database. Jira could create tables (as i see in the mysqlconsole) but the setup stops after about 8min with the following stack trace:

jira/secure/SetupDatabase.jspa

java.lang.IllegalStateException: You cannot perform an import with an invalid validation result.

Hi Robert,

I'm having the same issue.

What operating system are you running jira from?

What version of mysql are you using?

Is it a remote or local mysql server?

Any luck on this issue? I am encountering the same exact problem, with Java 1.7.45, JIRA 6.1.5 and a Postgres db. I am sure downgrading would solve it, since I am running virtually the same set up in a different environment, with the difference being it's running Java 1.6.37 and JIRA 5.2.x. I want to get the latest and greatest up and running though.

I've seen this recently on a PostGreSQL install, and I found https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-27796- could you try adjusting your password to see if that helps?

I tested this a couple days ago and it did not work. It also gives the same error when using the built-in hsqldb BEFORE I even get to set the password.

What have you changed in the installation? I can provoke similar errors by messing with the config files, but on a plain standalone install, there shouldn't be any need to do that.

I only did as per the directions for a JIRA WAR install: Changed the home directory in the jira-application-properties file, moved over the jira.xml file from my compiled JIRA war directory to my tomcat/conf/Catalina/localhost directory and copied over the jar files to the tomcat/lib folder (also making sure to remove them from the relevant jira folder. As I had said, I set up a production environment successfully, but that was JIRA 5.2.x. By all accounts, this new configuration should work.

I'll try a fresh install some time in the next day or so, just to see what happens.

Decided to try the standalone version, and it worked. Too bad about the WAR distribution not working aqt all, but this way, at least I can install JIRA and Confluence easily in their own Tomcat instances.
