System Center Upgrading
Upgrading to System Center 2016:
- Windows Azure Pack
- The below is assuming your system is NOT integrated with Windows Azure Pack under the pre-upgrade system.
- SQL Server
- The below is assuming that your System Center envirotment is not using "stand alone" SQL installed on the individual SC servers; they are all using a seperate SQL server / cluster.
- Account info
- You will need the account names for the users running the servers, their PC names, and the SQL user names for each SC subsystem
