1. Make a copy of the Data and Catalog directories under the BE installation directory. This is in case you need to revert 2. Unzip the downloaded file and burn it to a DVD. 3. Ruin the DVD to upgrade BE

Hi Assim,

pkh explanation is correct for part 1, and the upgrade process is plain simple.

You can skip part 2 since you can directly mount an iso file to a drive letter in server 2012 R2, right click the iso file and select mount. Run setup from the mounted drive letter.

Good luck!
