    Is my Orion upgrade path on the right track

    taltom

      I've decided to run through the recommended upgrade path from my current installation to current version.  The time it takes is of less concern than resources required to build all new servers and databases.  All installations are in an off-line environment.

       

      My server is:  Windows 2012-R2

      My DB server is:  MS SQL 2012 (SP4)

       

      I will install VNQM from scratch.

       

      How does the below upgrade path look?  Any obvious problems?  Steps 1-8 are from the SolarWinds upgrade adviser.  Steps 9-12 are my guess that this sequence will not cause any problems, but I believe the new installation packages will also tell me if there's a problem or dependency.

       

      I'll assume the database will be upgraded as I progress and I would perform a new database backup between each step.
