  • Applies to:
  • Plesk Automation 11.5
  • Plesk 12.0 for Windows
  • Plesk 11.0 for Windows
  • Plesk 11.5 for Windows


An attempt to upgrade Plesk to version 12 fails with the following error:

    Unable to execute "C:\Program Files (x86)\Parallels\Plesk\admin\bin\websrvmng.exe" - configure-plesk-website:
     A specified logon session does not exist. You may already have been terminated. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070520)

        at ServerManagerFactory.commit ()
        at IISServerManager.commit (IISServerManager *)

If you run mentioned command manually it fails with the same error.


Such situation may take a place when system cannot recreate Plesk certificate in IIS > Certificate.


  1. Make sure that httpsd.pem files exists in C:\Program Files (x86)\Parallels\Plesk\admin\conf.

  2. Reconfigure Plesk site with Plesk Reconfigurator utlity: Plesk Reconfigurator > Repair Plesk installation > Plesk Services
