In place upgrade of PDQ Host
Hi, we currently have a PDQ host 2012R2, and looking to upgrade it to 2016 or 2019.
Has anyone done an inplace upgrade of their server before? Will it cause any issues?
Here is how I updated my PDQ server's OS last time (2012 R2 -> 2016):
I believe I copied over all my settings/preferences manually, but I'm sure there's a way to export/import those as well.
Hi Luke,, thanks for the reply. I think I'll take a snapshot and try an in-place upgrade. See how it goes.
If it all goes to hell, I'll do a migration like what you describe above.
Hi Nathan, I'm planning a similar upgrade of my PDQ Inventory & Deploy server from windows server 2012 to 2019. Just curious how your in-place server OS upgrade went? Thanks.
Hi Daniel, I haven't had a chance to look at it further. So its still on the list of things to do.
For anyone that wants to know. Upgraded our PDQ server today from 2012R2 to 2019 with no problem. Straight in-place upgrade.
So far no errors or any problems.
