The mentioned KB DOES NOT supply ANY information to my first view regarding CHANGING/UPSCALING SQL Version to a new Version. (KB68427)
This article provides instructions that are useful for the following:
- Moving the ePO database from one SQL server to another SQL server.
- Moving the ePO database without moving the ePO server.
- Migrating the ePO database to a new SQL server, while keeping the same ePO server.
@Mcafee, important information is missing in a Mcafee KB regarding to the version change
I don't know about McAfee official stance but I've personally moved from MS-SQL 2008 R2 to MS-SQL 2014 by backing up the DB and doing a restore. I even up leveled the SQL mode to 120 afterwards. I've been running in this mode with ePO 5.3.2 for about a year now after the migration.
