  • Hello,

    The best and recommend practice is to do a clean install if you want to move to Windows Server 2016. But un-place upgrade should work. I suggest you have at least two management server in your management group, so that during the upgrade, your agent can also report to your management group.

  • Hello,

    During the upgrade, the service will be stopped. As long as you have another management server, your agent should be able to failover.

    If you do not want to do a clean install, I suggest you first back up your server and then do the upgrade.
