Hi guys! First timer here, and really need to make sure I am on track with this upgrade.
I will be upgrading our BE server version of 14.1 to 14.2. The server OS I am running is 2008 R2. I was looking for a way to back up the jobs, and catalogs should something go awry with the upgrade. Didn't know if there was a BE tool hidden, or if I just need to copy my catalog folder to a different location for safe keeping? Is there a BE upgrade checklist somewhere? I've been looking for something like that, but no such luck as of yet.
Once I upgrade the server, I will upgrade my clients during a MX weekend soon, so that should not be a problem.
Thank you for any advice you can give me! :)
