Preupgradecheck fails with “An error occurred while parsing EntityName. Line 8, position 39.”


Preupgradecheck fails OR Error: “An error occurred while parsing EntityName. Line 8, position 39.

preupgradecheck fails on SP2 MOSS2007 farm while running. The check runs through fine until it go till SPSearchInfo section

Afterword’s it fails with:

SPSearchInfo… Information Only
“An error occurred while parsing EntityName. Line 8, position 39.

Fix for the issue:

In this blog I am focussing only on the error which is preventing the report file to be generated.

If you are facing the screen as of below:

Goto:

C:Program FilesCommon FilesMicrosoft SharedWeb Server Extensions12CONFIGPreUpgradeCheck

Open the OssPreUpgradeCheck xml file and delete the entry highlighted below. It has to be done 2 times as this entry is present 2 times 1 highlighted and 1 below.

Run the preupgradecheck again and this time it will give you the success to generate the report file.

Location and preview of all files generated.

Feel free to Rate and provide feedback if you find post useful

Hope this help
