TRIM 7 on SQL 2016?

I understand TRIM 7 is beyond obsoleted, but thought I would reach out for people's thoughts/opinions/suggestions on the approach below.

I am looking to upgrade an existing 7.3 dataset to 9.1 - as part of this, the database will need to be migrated from SQL 2008 to a version compatible with 9.1.

I would like to migrate the 7.1 database to a SQL 2016 platform first, before the upgrade takes place. I am also wondering if I should set the database up with compatibiltiy mode, while it is still v7, or leave it as native 2016.

I know this is unsupported given that a.) TRIM 7 is past end of life and b.) the product was not validated against SQL 2016 (which did not exist at the time). But I am hoping that, so long as the database works in 2016, it should be sufficent for a few weeks, before it's upgraded to 9.

Re: TRIM 7 on SQL 2016?

I think I have found my answer through some old threads. Although they are geared towards SQL 2012/2014, I think the message would the the same for 2016.

Upgrade SQL Server along with RM Servers

Is TRIM 7.3.3.5670 compatible with SQL-Server 2014?

It works perfectly fine on 2016, in my experience.

Tends to be pretty rare that the version of SQL impacts the version of TRIM. So should be fine
