Do you mind sharing your upgrade experience?
We have a SmarterMail v15.7 on Windows Server 2012 R2.
We would like to upgrade to SmarterMail 17, and preferably on Windows Server 2016, or 2019.
(The current Windows Server 2012 R2 is very clean, simply contains SmarterMail, Ahsay Backup Agent, Kaspersky End-point Antivirus, KVM guest agent)
Q1) Do you run in-place upgrade for Windows Server 2012 R2 to 2016 ? (i.e. Insert ISO, and run Windows setup to upgrade)
Or prepare a blank-new Windows Server 2016, install SmarterMail v15.7, robocopy/rsync the SmarterMail data files from existing server to new server?
Q2) Do you run in-place upgrade for SmarterMail 15.7 to SmarterMail 16, then from SmarterMail 16 to SmarterMail 17? (of course, uninstall SmarterMail, and install a new one)
Thank you very much for your sharing.
