SQL 2012 Upgrade Advisor - The network path was not found.

Answers

  • I've got the answer.  SQL 2012 UA currently has a defect but there is a work-around.  Microsoft eventually discovered the problem after I had contacted them and reported the issue.  MS is working on a possible fix.

    The Answer:

    2012 UA must be configured in the following way to work under the following circumstance.

    If you are running 2012 UA against a remote SQL Instance running on a NON_STANDARD PORT and the Instance is the DEFAULT Instance (not a named instance) then you must create SQL Aliases in MS SQL Configuration Manager, where UA 2012 is running from, that are named the exact name of the server you are running 2012 UA against.  Example, if the database server is named Salsa the Alias must be Salsa, the alias cannot be named SalsaProd or SalsaDev etc for server Salsa.
