    Hi Ben,

    There are no known issues in performing the step that you are referring to. Please refer to the log files for error messages.

    Also ensure that you have planned and prepared for the upgrade, including performing a test upgrade and running the pre-upgrade scan tool. For more information, see http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc287730.aspx and http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc287628.aspx.
