Upgrade from Server 2008

Jump to solution

Hello,

 

I want to upgrade our FNMEA server from server 2008 to server 2016 and while I'm at it, upgrade our FNMEA version to 2016 R1.  Is there a compatibility matrix or something for this software?  Also, is it as easy as installing 2016 R1 and pointing it at the existing database connection from the old version?  Is there a guide on this?

Hi,

The Release Notes should have this covered, e.g. here for 2020 R1:
https://docs.flexera.com/fnmea/2021r1/ReleaseNote/Content/helplibrary/Microsoft_Windows.htm#fnmea_releasenotes_3245833784_1027555

The database will need to be migrated, please refer to the Installation Documentation:
https://docs.flexera.com/fnmea/2021r1/InstallationGuide/Content/helplibrary/Upgrade_Steps.htm#fnminstall_upgradeinstall_2132160285_951649

Looks like docs.flexera.com is down...I cannot access it on multiple devices.  Error 20.
