We are currently looking at upgrading our Zenworks 11.4.3 to Zenworks 2017 but out server is only on Windows Server 2008 R2 which according to the documentation isnít supported so I would like to know the best way of upgrading to 2017 whilst causing the least amount of disruption

Will I be able to create the new Zenworks 2017 server on server 2016 attach it to the current setup and make it the primary and let everything sort itself out

Will I have to create a secondary server on 11.4.3 on server 2016 let everything synchronise then make the secondary server the primary server down the old primary server and then upgrade Zenworks to 2017
Any help you can give me in this would be very much appreciated.
