We are attempting an inplace upgrade of Sharepoint 2003 to Sharepoint 2007.  We ran setup and then the prescan.exe command from the command line.  We then ran the Sharepiont Products and Technologies Configuration Wizard.  The wizard gets to step 2 of the process and then fails.  The error logs shows this error.

03/27/2007 15:17:31  9  ERR                          Task upgradebootstrap has failed with an unknown exception
03/27/2007 15:17:31  9  ERR                          Exception: Microsoft.SharePoint.Upgrade.SPUpgradeException: Action 12.0.1.0 of Microsoft.SharePoint.Portal.Upgrade.FarmSequence failed. ---> System.Data.SqlTypes.SqlNullValueException: Data is Null. This method or property cannot be called on Null values.

Looks to be a SQL problem.  We are currently down.  Thanks for any assistance.
