    Upgrading to NPM 12.1.  Any expectations, surprises, pointers?  What to do first?

    kange0010

      I am running Server 2008 R2 SP1 for the main Orion and NTA pollers and have a Server 2008 R2 (not sure if it's SP1) for my SQL server.  I am upgrading:

       

      NPM 12.0.1

      VNQM 4.2.4

      SAM 6.2.4

      NCM 7.5

      NTA 4.2.0

       

      to NPM 12.1, SAM 6.4, NCM 7.6, NTA 4.2.2 & VNQM 4.4. 

       

      I do know I will need to create backups/snapshots and have my .NET Framework upgraded to 4.6.2 before anything.  I have downloaded the offline installers for NTA and NPM which I was informed includes all the other module upgrades as well.  Do I install the NPM upgrade first then install the upgrade for my NTA server or should I do the NTA server first?  Is there anything I need to do on my SQL database side besides create backups?  My Orion and NTA servers are VMs, will simple snapshots suffice as a backup on their ends?  Any other obstacles or surprises I should expect in this process?  I'm trying to have a smooth transition.  Please advise.

       

      Thank you.
