If you have already upgraded to SQL Server 2012 RTM or a later version that does not include this hotfix, follow these steps to resolve this problem.
Note This fix assumes that you have the original SQL Server 2008 R2 database backup.
- Upgrade the SQL Server 2008 R2 MDS instance to SQL Server 2012 MDS. (Wait to run the MDS Database Upgrade Wizard until step 4.)
- Upgrade the SQL Server 2012 MDS instance to SQL Server 2012 SP1.
- Upgrade the SQL Server 2012 SP1 MDS instance to SQL Server 2012 SP1 Cumulative Update 10.
- Run the MDS Database Upgrade Wizard in the Master Data Services Configuration Manager.
To verify that the hotfix works after the upgrade is complete, go to the Business Rules page to check whether any business rule that originally had DBA reference still has the DBA reference.
