2012 SP1 to 2012 R2 side-by-side migration? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello

    Is it possible/supported to migrate from 2012 SP1 to 2012 R2 side-by-side?

    Reason for wanting this is to upgrade the Server OS at the same time from 2012 to 2012 R2 and avoid the backup/restore DB process.

    Thanks

  • Backup/restore would be much easier compared to a migration IMHO. It's only supported to migrate from R2 to R2 in your scenario though.

  • Hi,
    I agree with Torsten the backup/restore scenario is much easier than migrating to a new site.
