Re: Migrator FAILED: WNC Type Definition Updater

This error message is pretty generic, and doesn't give any details as to the cause of the error. The error indicates that the Upgrade Manager invoked a method in the Method Server. That invoked method failed in the Method Server, but the Upgrade Manager log doesn't contain the details as to why. But, if you check the Method Server log, there should be an error message in there that gives more details as to the cause of the error.

The mothedserver gave me that extra little bit of information which was required to fix:
