App-V 4.5: Failed to Start App-V Management Server: Error 268480357


Here is the scene. An attempt to start App-V Management Server 4.5 fails with the following error:

“Windows could not start the Application Virtualization Management Server on “servername.” For more information, review the System Event Log. If this is a non-Microsoft service, contact the service vendor, and refer to service-specific error code 268480357.”

You also then see the following in the SFT-SERVER.LOG file when it is set to VERBOSE:

You will see this occur often when you try to point the 4.5 server (Application Virtualization Management Server) to a database created by a lower version. In this particular case, the 4.5 server was trying to connect to a database previously used by a 4.1.3.16 server.
This often happens in scenarios where a 4.5 server cannot connect for some reason to a 4.5 datastore and an older copy of a previous version of the database maybe restored in error or out of desperation.
 
Regardless, this error will happen immediately upon startup. If you point to a pre-4.5 database during installation, however, the installation program will try to update it.

The best solution is to either stand up a new installation that creates a new installation or uninstall the App-V 4.5 server and install a 4.1 version of the Softgrid Virtual Application server and point to this database. Then proceed to attempt to upgrade the 4.1 server to 4.5 which in turn should upgrade the database from 4.1 to 4.5.

PLEASE NOTE: This is predicated on the fact the database is in a usable state.

    I drop a leave a response whenever I especially enjoy a article on a blog or I have something to add to the discussion.
    Usually it is caused by the sincerness communicated in the post I looked at.

    And on this post App-V 4.5: Failed to Start App-V Management Server:
    Error 268480357 | The Mad Virtualizer at Microsoft.
    I was excited enough to drop a thought😉 I do have 2 questions for you if you tend
    not to mind. Is it simply me or does it give
    the impression like a few of these remarks come
    across as if they are coming from brain dead visitors?😛 And, if you are writing at additional sites, I’d like to follow you. Would you list the complete urls of all your social sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
