Support Tip: “Internal error: DbaXXXX functions" when launching DP GUI after product upgrade to version 11.00 or 11.01


When you upgrade a DP Cell Manager with an impacted version (10.60 to 10.91) that has “OCTUS19Q861574_1060-1091_20210811” hotfix applied to 11.00 or 11.01, the Data Protector GUI fails to launch. This is because the GUI cannot connect to the Cell Manager post the upgrade.

If the Data Protector Cell Manager with version 10.60 (2019.12) to 10.91 has the “OCTUS19Q861574_1060-1091_20210811” hotfix applied, then the following errors display when upgrading this Cell Manager to either version 11.00 or version 11.01:

•    In the upgrade log: “Encryption of users credentials failed”.
•    On launching the Data Protector GUI: “Internal error: DbaXXXX functions”.
