Secure Store Database Upgrade to SharePoint 2016 Error

EDIT 11/14/2017: This is resolved in the November 2017 PU for SharePoint Server 2016

When upgrading the Secure Store database to SharePoint 2016, you may encounter an error if you have applied the May 2017 CU to SharePoint 2013. This CU increments the Secure Store database schema and prevents the upgrade to SharePoint 2016. The error message you’ll see in ULS will be similar to this.

SharePoint Server 2016 is looking for a schema version of ‘’ while the schema on the database was incremented to ‘’ via the May 2017 CU for SharePoint 2013. Microsoft is aware of the issue. Likely the fix will reside on the SharePoint 2016 side via Public Update.

  1. It’s september now… I’ve applied the August CU for SharePoint 2016 (KB401149 and KB4011053), yet nothing changed. The error is the same, the “old” SecureStore schema version is still greater than the SP2016 Aug CU’s.

    Who can tell at MS that how long we have to wait with a half-done upgrade because an addressed bug in a Public update 3 versions before??? Seriously it haven’t been fixed in june, july, and aug CUs?

    Still no workaround?
