  • It's definitely a bug. I've sent it off to the appropriate individuals. That said, consider opening a PSS case for additional reporting.

  • I get the same thing. Upgrading from SharePoint 2013 w/ May 2017 CU to SharePoint 2016 w/ Sept 2017 CU. Sep 15, 2017 at 17:41

1 Answer 1


As of September 2017 CU (Feature Pack 2), this issue has not been resolved. It appears that the Secure Store schema version was incremented with the SP 2013 May 2017 CU to but SharePoint 2016 RTM to latest CU use

Though editing the databases is not supported, I was able to upgrade the Secure Store DB by editing the Versions table row that contained and changed it to After following the steps to upgrade the Secure Store service (link below), the PowerShell commands finish with no errors and SharePoint 2016 reports the database upgrade status for the Secure Store DB as "no action required".
