Upgrading from Windows 2012 R2 to 2019 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Good morning,

    I am trying to find where to post this question. Do not think I am at the right place but hope for an answer...

    We have a bunch of Windows 2012 R2 servers. Plan was to rebuild them but I was told that it is safe to now simply run the upgrade to 2019.

    In the past, I was always told not to do so. As this change? Is it perfectly OK to upgrade on top of a 2012 Server? Are there old/bad files that do not get deleted? I still think that building from scratch is cleaner but the time that would be save to upgrade is significant.

    If someone does have some direction on this it would be appreciated.

    Thank you
