We are currently on EV 12.5 , Can we be do an out of box upgrade ? build a new Win2019 server and EV14.1 and migrate? is this option supported by veritas, I belive inplace upgrade is easy.
Do we have steps for this out of box upgrade method ?
Easiest would be to upgrade existing EV to 14.1, then migrate. You can use the Server Migration Wizard to move 12.5 to 14.0 (not 14.1), and then upgrade the 14.0 to 14.1 (although 14.2 is also out already).
SMW see THIS document.
For moving EV from 1 server to another, see This2 KB
Also see my article on upgrading:
Thank a Ton Gertjan
The below statement from https://www.veritas.com/support/en_US/article.100023864 keeping the same version on the trager new server is concerning a bit, So can we safely migrate from 12.5 to 14.0 using the migrate option?
c. Install the same version of Enterprise Vault as is being used in the current environment.
