sqlite3.IntegrityError | Upgrading FreeNAS 11.3-U7 to TrueNas Core 12.4-U4

During my upgrade of FreeNAS i encountered a sqlite3.IntegrityError stopping a active database upgrade. I will show you how to fix it and upgrade to TrueNAS.

I had tried upgrading FreeNAS a number of times but it all failed, all errors had something to do with the FreeNAS middlewere. Today i wanted to see if i could overcome by upgrading to TrueNas, a in-place upgrade gave me the same result. I then tried a clean install of FreeNAS, this did boot. But when i tried to import my configuration it failed once again, this time i had a file as a reference; /data/update.failed here i could see the following lines. As you can see ” sqlite3.IntegrityError: UNIQUE constraint failed: directoryservice_idmap_rid.idmap_rid_domain_id

The above exception was the direct cause of the following exception:

This thread came to my rescue as on of the only sources online, they stated that deleting two rows in the freenas-v1.db from your configuration download could fix this issue. Download SQLite browser and unzip your FreeNAS/TrueNAS archive file. Then open your freenas-v1.db file with SQLite explorer. Here you can see a lot of tables for FreeNAS configuration. We need directoryservice_idmap_rid.

Sqlite explorer for freenas.db

List the rows and remove row 2 and three by right clicking on the row number and clicking remove record. Also navigate to /usr/local/etc/smb4.conf and remove all idmap config parameters, restart the samba service. Source: Samba wiki

Save the modified database, repack it in a tar archive file and upload as your configuration to your NAS. You should install a clean version of the newest version, after booting you can import the new archive file to import your configuration. Additionally i had to backup my encryption keys and reset my ZFS pool.
