TIP 1512: Skype for Business 2015 - Inplace Upgrade Failed

Filed under: Lync MVP Alliance, Skype for Business,Lync Server 2013/2010 — Desmond Lee @ 11:55 am

The “Verifying upgrade readiness … ” step failed for an in-place upgrade of Lync Server 2013 to Skype for Business with the error message:

Der Zugriff aud den Pfad “N:\” wurde verweigert.
( Access denied path “N:\” )

This is a result of Sfbs setup.exe’s attempt to enumerate across available local and network drives to store temporary (setup) files. At least one such drive with 32GB or more free space must be accessible in order that this (not-documented) requirement can be met.
