I'm using the AutoSPInstaller script. This is what I run:

Start-Process -FilePath $PSConfig -ArgumentList "-cmd upgrade -inplace v2v -passphrase FarmPassPhrase -force -wait" -NoNewWindow -Wait

But I get a bunch of errors:

Performing configuration task 3 of 4
Upgrading SharePoint Products...
Failed to upgrade SharePoint Products.

Total number of configuration settings run: 3
Total number of successful configuration settings: 2
Total number of unsuccessful configuration settings: 1
Successfully stopped the configuration of SharePoint Products.
Configuration of SharePoint Products failed.  Configuration must be performed before you use SharePoint Products.

The PSCDiagnostics Log has the following errors:

03/03/2011 09:35:25  8  ERR            Exception:

Does anybody have any ideas how I can fix this?

    If the problem is AutoSpInstaller relater, you should ask the question on Codeplex not here Commented Nov 4, 2011 at 15:28
  • Have you retried running psconfig or viewing the tracing log to see the conflict as per the note in the diagnostic log?
