I see the SO Windows 8.1 with much great new things is there what we want to upgrade. Currently we have more SO Instances 7.1 SR2 for our diff. departments, for that one DB Server Win 2008 R2 with more SQL Server 2005 Instances each separated for each SO Instances, and one CRM Server for these more Server Installation, the SO Arc for each SO Instances run also an 3. separated Document Server, so we get best load balance with our experiences.
The Question is, before SO Upgrading we want to also Upgrade DB Server from Win2008 R2 to win2016 and SQL Server from 2005 to 2016 or 2017. Could we do that in one steps what means, whether SQL Server 2016 and WIN 2016 is suitable for SO7 SR2, then we proceed SO Upgrade 7.1 SR2->7.5->8.0->8.1? Otherwise We must find temporary Upgrade SQL Server 2012 for SO 7.5 then go on.
Thanks a lot!
