Thoughts on in place os update to Server 2016

Recently updated my ZCM server
was server 2008 R2 ZCM 11.4.3
Now Server 2012 R2 ZCM 2017.1

Any thoughts on pushing my luck and moving the server OS on up to Server 2016?? I really hate the windows 8 look / feel.

Re: Thoughts on in place os update to Server 2016

AFAIK, Windows 2016 Upgrades have not been tested.
Don't know anyone that has.
Never did myself.
I guess it could trash your server.
That being said, since Windows 2016 is a supported OS I see no reason why it may not work.
Again, I would recommend setting the User Spoke in the Agent Settings for the server to Uninstalled for the OS Upgrade.
No way I do this in Prod before a lab.

The supported method would be the Hardware Replacement method, ensuring ZCM is installed to the same path on the new server.
