Upgrade BE3600 appliance to BE2014 with Central Admin Server

Hi, we are planning to upgrade from BE2012 to BE2014.

We have one VM with Central Admin role and three BE3600 as Member Server Role.

Should we first upgrade CAS and then the Member Servers (appliance)? Does the 2014 CAS work w/ 2012 appliance during the transition period?

Which patch level of BE2014 should we go for? SP2 or ....??

Thanks for any advice.

...the primary appliance is

...the primary appliance is promoted to the CASO role first and then patched before you do this on every other appliance you want to link in as an MMS.

When patching, always patch the CASO first, followed  by the MMS servers. Upgrading the appliances should see you follow the TN below:

Hi Joseph, As already

Hi Joseph,

As already mentioned, the CAS must be upgraded first. It does support rolling upgrades so you do not need to upgrade all the MBES's at the same time. Remember to disable communication (in storage tab) with the MBES's when upgrading the CAS.
