Inventory is empty after migration to 4.1

Hi

Having used the mgration tool to upgrade from vCenter 2.5 (update6) to vCenter 4.1 I have nothing showing in the cosole on the new 4.1 server.

The Inventory is black and it looks like a new clean install of vCenter.

There are no critical errors in the logs that I can tell, but the inventory is still completely empty.

I have connected to the new database wirth SQL Server Management Studio 2008, and all of the tables I have checked in the WIM_VCDB database appear to be empty, such as VPX_VM, VPX_HOST, VPX_DATACENTER etc

I have attached the backup and restore logs from the migration. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks

Gordon

HI there,

I had the same thing happen, turns out I screwed up during the vCenter server install and told it to overwrite my vCenter DB with a blank one. Had to pull a restore of the DB from the previous night and just repalced it, was fine after that.. Sounds like you probably did the same thing..

Hope that helps..
