Looking to potentially upgrade a legacy SolarWinds Orion v10.5 up to v12.2
The Upgrade Advisor currently only shows up to SolarWinds Orion v12.1
Doesn't it tell you that first thing? So step one, upgrade OS. I can see the benefit in knowing the whole path you need to take before you start trying to schedule a maintenance window though, haha. I just upgraded a client from 12.1 on Server08 and Sql08 to some fresh 2016 servers and sql 2017 running the latest versions last week and it was a bit of a chore. "Oh yeah, should maybe take an hour or two, back up db, restore, install upgrades no problem..." wrong. Ended up temporarily installing sql 2014 on one of the servers we intended to decom as an intermediate step because 12.1 wouldn't install on sql 2017 yet, and we couldn't upgrade the existing instance past 12.1 without upgrading the SQL and OS. Only had to stay an extra hour fortunately.
