Is a Windows Server in place upgrade supported? Windows Server 2012R2 Standard to Windows Server 2019 Standard

Hello we are wanting to get one of our customers on a newer Windows Server platform.

They are currently running SAGE 100 Contractor on a Windows Server 2012R2 server.

We would like to get them running on Windows Server 2019 Standard if not Windows Server 2022 Standard.  

I just wanted to pose the question to see if an in place upgrade of the OS is supported, or works if anyone has tried this.

If not what does a migration from a Windows Server 2012R2 system to another Windows Server 2019 system look like.

I'm not seeing much out there on this type of scenario.

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi Mark. There should be no issue doing an in-place upgrade to Server 2019 or Server 2022. Note that while Server 2022 is not listed as officially supported in our system requirements, we have not any issues installing or running the program on that O/S from customers or in-house. But to be safe, you should make backups of all your Sage databases prior to the upgrade.

    That is great news.  We will definitely be doing backups in Sage and of the vm before doing this.

    Thank You very much
