We will soon upgrade our servers from TRIM 7.1 to RM 8.3. I understand that you first have to upgrade the 7,.1 dataset to 7.3 before you can upgrade to 8.3. The SQL Server we are using now is 2008.
Once we shut down the 7.1 dataset and start the upgrade, we want to upgrade the SQL Server to 2012.
Can we upgrade the SQL Server to 2012 before we upgrade the datasets or do we have to upgrade the 7.1 dataset to 7.3 using SQL Server 2008.? Will it work if the 7.1 dataset is attached to SQL Server 2012? I assume we can upgrade the 7.3 dataset to 8.3 with SQL Server 2012.
Thanks for your help. Any comments will be appreciated.
