Hi,

is it a good idea to Upgrade the Operating System of an Commserve and a MediaAgent in place or is it better to install a new machine and migrate the CS or MA?

 

What is the supported way to get a new OS?

 

Kind Regards

Florian

Hi @flokaiser 

In place upgrade obviously carries an element of risk.

Since you have Commserve and Media Agent on the same machine, the risk is doubled.

I would recommend separating the Commserve and Media Agent to different machines, at which point you can move the roles to machines with a newer OS.

@flokaiser , appreciate the confirmation.  Check the link for the CS hardware refresh, as well as the MA refresh.  Same idea as @Stuart Painter mentioned; you are just building new servers, then migrating the resources over.
