We attempted a deployment last night. This involves both one or more web apps, and one or more databases. The web apps gave us no problems, and all but one of the databases deployed just fine.

Why the one data base failed: We have for db environments dev, test, QA, and production. We develop on dev (of course) pretty much ignore test, test on QA (external testers), and deploy to production. SQL Server versions by environment:

dev - 2012
Test - 2008R2
QA - 2016
Production - 2008R2

While developing, we used DATEFROMPARTS. This tested fine in Dev and QA, but failed on production. We spent two hours coming up with a fix, but since we couldn't run it through a proper test cycle, we had to roll back everything.
