Hi all.

I am currently running Novell Service Desk 7.0.3 on a virtual machine (VMware ESX) running Sles 11 SP3. The database is external MS SQL 2008 R2. Instead of upgrading the current machine, could I instead stand up a new Service Desk 7.2 appliance and point it to a copy of the existing database? This would also allow me to migrate the database (copy it over) to a new MS SQL 2014 server I built. Is this possible or even advisable? Another reason for considering this is I beleive my java versions on the current SLES 11 SP3 machine may be askew (I think it is running the default IBM java bundled with SLES) instead of the supported and called for SUN/ORACLE java.
