The following error is in the duinstall.log:

3. Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 Registration Keys - NEW PROCESS
Customers:
Microsoft Dynamics GP Business Ready Licensing (BRL) or Module Based Licensing (MBL) Customers, current on their service plan, must contact their Partner to request their Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 registration keys. Registration keys will not be visible in CustomerSource until an order has been placed and completed for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013.

Partners:
Partners can place their Customer’s order by following these instructions. Once the order is placed, the Customer will be able to see their registration keys in CustomerSource.

A. These customers can transition upgrade to Perpetual Licensing via a LMT Upgrade if their current Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 PartnerSource Business Center (PSBC) First Registration Date is prior to October 1, 2012. The Customer will receive like functionality (per the LMT Upgrade Rules as defined in the Perpetual Upgrade Policy) and their service plan end date will remain the same at no additional cost.

B. A LCT Upgrade is processed if the Customer’s current Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 PSBC First Registration Date is on or after October 1, 2012. The Customer will receive PLP credit from their current solution to apply to the Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 Perpetual solution.

Effective December 19, 2012, qualified Partners will be able to generate Microsoft Dynamics GP Perpetual license keys for TWO, Inc. using the demo/dev template in the License Key Configuration (LKC) tool in PSBC under Developer Tools. Partners that qualify to receive a not for resale copy of GP 2013 Perpetual for their own internal use will have their accounts and license keys updated in early January 2013.

Additional information:
1. Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 will not be available on the Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 Business Ready Licensing (BRL) or Module Based Licensing (MBL).
2. Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 Perpetual is only available on version 2013 and forward.

Upgrade Supportability

1. Microsoft Dynamics Technical Support can assist with upgrades from a supported version according to the Microsoft Product Lifecycle Policy to a supported version according to the Microsoft Product Lifecycle Policy. For example, Microsoft Dynamics GP 9.0 to Microsoft Dynamics GP 10.0 or Microsoft Dynamics GP 9.0 to Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 or Microsoft Dynamics GP 10.0 to Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013.

2. Microsoft Dynamics Technical Support can assist with upgrades from a non-supported version according to the Microsoft Product Lifecycle Policy to a supported version according to the Microsoft Product Lifecycle Policy. For example, Microsoft Business Solutions-Great Plains 8.0 to Microsoft Dynamics GP 10.0 or Microsoft Dynamics GP 9.0 to Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010.

3. Microsoft Dynamics Technical Support cannot assist with upgrades to a non-supported version according to the Microsoft Product Lifecycle Policy even if the end result is a supported version. For example, Microsoft Business Solutions-Great Plains 6.0 to Microsoft Business Solutions- Great Plains 7.5 or Microsoft Business Solutions-Great Plains 7.5 to Microsoft Dynamics GP 9.0.

4. Upgrade services through Advanced Product Support Services are not available when the end result is a non-supported version according to the Microsoft Product Lifecycle Policy. For example, Microsoft Business Solutions-Great Plains 6.0 to Microsoft Business Solutions- Great Plains 7.5 or Microsoft Business Solutions-Great Plains 7.5 to Microsoft Dynamics GP 9.0. If you have any questions regarding upgrade services, please reach out to your Microsoft Dynamics GP Partner and ask that they open up an Advisory Services Request with Microsoft for you.

5. Upgrade services through Advanced Product Support Services are available for upgrades to a supported version according to the Microsoft Product Lifecycle Policy. For example, Microsoft Dynamics GP 9.0 to Microsoft Dynamics GP 10.0 or Microsoft Dynamics GP 9.0 to Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 or Microsoft Business Solutions-Great Plains 6.0 to Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010. If you have any questions regarding upgrade services, please reach out to your Microsoft Dynamics GP Partner and ask that they open up an Advisory Services Request with Microsoft for you.

6. Due to the length and potential complexity of upgrade cases, the following protocol is used to divide upgrade issues into separate technical support cases.
1. Case 1 - Pre-Upgrade Question
2. Case 2 - Installing Microsoft Dynamics GP and running the upgrade in Microsoft Dynamics GP Utilities on the company databases and the modified forms and reports.
3. Case 3 - A potential issue in Microsoft Dynamics GP following the upgrade.
NOTE: If the technical support cases were for a test upgrade and assistance is required for the live upgrade, a new case will need to be created to troubleshoot the issues for the live upgrade.   

NOTE:  The above breakdown of Upgrade Cases still requires us to align with our overall policy of the definition of a support incident which can be found at the following location:

What is a "Support Incident"?

Support Information

Once you upgrade to Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 and need assistance, please have the following items available before contacting Technical Support to assist in the troubleshooting process.

  1. A Dexsql.log that traced the upgrade process.

    If a Dexsql.log was not created, please refer to Knowledge Base Article 850996 for the steps to create a Dexsql.log.

  2. The results of the following script executed in Query Analyzer or the SQL Server Management Studio. The results of this script will list all tables that failed during the table conversion process.

    SELECT b.fileOSName, a.fileNumber, a.PRODID, a.Status, a.errornum, a.errordes, c.CMPANYID, c.INTERID
    FROM DYNAMICS.dbo.DU000030 a
    JOIN
    DYNAMICS.dbo.DU000010 b
    ON a.fileNumber = b.fileNumber
    AND a.PRODID = b.PRODID
    JOIN
    DYNAMICS.dbo.SY01500 c
    ON a.companyID = c.CMPANYID
    WHERE (a.Status <> 0 or a.errornum <> 0) and a.Status <>15


For technical support questions, contact your partner or, if enrolled in a support plan directly with Microsoft, you can enter a new support request to Microsoft Dynamics® Technical Support from Customer Source or Partner Source under Support >> New Support Request.
