Question

After updating my Entity Framework to version 6.0.0-alpha1 I cant update database. This is the error I'm getting:

'PK_dbo.__MigrationHistory' is not a constraint.
Could not drop constraint. See previous errors.

What's the cause of this? I've queried sysobjects table for 'PK_dbo.__MigrationHistory' but that does not exist. any idea?

Thanks in advance.

Accepted Answer

OK. I have found the solution. It appears that EF expects the Primary Key constraint of __MigrationHistory table to have the name PK_dbo.__MigrationHistory. but it is PK___MigrationHistory.

So the following sql statements will do the trick.

ALTER TABLE __MigrationHistory
drop CONSTRAINT PK___MigrationHistory
ALTER TABLE __MigrationHistory
ADD CONSTRAINT [PK_dbo.__MigrationHistory] PRIMARY KEY (MigrationId)

after this I have used update-database with no errors.
