Thanks, Ivan. Maybe I can clarify a little more...
I have two sites (an Intranet and a Customer site) that share content from a database called WEB_DEV. The Intranet site uses WEB_DEV as its primary and only database. The Customer site uses WEB_DEV only for Lists, Forums, Generic_Content, Blogs, Libraries, Events, Polls, Wiki, and News. It uses its own database called WEB_CUST_DEV for navigation, pages, site structure, and settings.
In the Customer web.config, it defines two connection strings - one for WEB_DEV and another for WEB_CUST_DEV. For the purposes of the SP4 upgrade, I made both connection strings point to the WEB_CUST_DEV database because the Intranet and WEB_DEV have already been successfully upgraded to SP4. This means that during the upgrade process, the Customer site has its structure and pages defined but does not contain any content.
I have applied all of the patch files, but when I run the application, I get the "Thank you for visiting..." message. It does not prompt me for the database information, nor does it try to upgrade it.
