WFA unable to restore backup


Hi All,

I wanted to upgrade an existing WFA installation from 5.0 to 5.1. 

Tried to just upgrade it with installer, dropped this error, after that I cannot login anymore to WFA.

Tired to uninstall completely and reinstall and restore backup file, it starts to restore than suddenly logging out from app, and and  again after that I was not able to log back in anymore.

Any suggestion how to solve this?

Man Thanks





I've restore error.jpgcaptured error msg:



Finally I was able to update with the help of Netapp Support (Thank you all who helped me). 

We have a corrupted database therefore a corrupted backup file generated, and dropped when I tried to restore. Inherited from v 4.1.


Hope no one hits this error else than me 😄
