SM on win 2008 srv
Question asked by Richard Frank - 11/29/2016 at 6:25 PM
I have an win2008 srv whit latest asp.net on it.
Can I upgrade to SM 15.x?
I am at the point of upgrading the server but I think it's better to upgrade from 14.x to latest 15.x.
Shall I use 2016 or win2012r2?

Yes, you can run sn SmarterMail on a licensed Windows 2008 service. Just make sure you rum under IIS, and have all the patches, both basic, and enhanced,

Thanks Bruce. I will upgrade first then. and migratig to new server, go for 2012r2 or is 2016 also good? I am a little bit conservative with using the latest versions. I tend to wait until a few months of patches and updates are past.

Haven't played around with IIS in 2016 yet but in 2012 R2 it's rock solid!

Hi Richard. We've tested SmarterMail 15 on Server 2016 and we've run into no issues.

an update:
I upgraded the mailserver this night (00:56 in NL) to 15.4.x without a problem
almost, after uninstalling SM14 the server unexpectedly rebooted. That was a bit stressful. 
So next fase will be prepping a new server with win2016 and SM and then move all the data etc.
