We are currently running 3 primary ZCM servers at 11.0. The database server is running Server 2003 and SQL 2005, the reporting server is running Server 2003, and the content repository server that we use for imaging is Server 2008 R2. We are looking to upgrade to ZCM 11.2. We want to move the database to a stand alone SQL server running Server 2008 and SQL 2008 R2. I also want to upgrade the environment to have the OS at Server 2008R2. What is the best way to go about this?

This is what is being discussed. Moving the SQL Server first. Upgrading ZCM to 11.2 on all servers. Bringing up a new server running 2008r2 and zcm 11.2 and setting it as Primary. Then retiring the two 2003 servers. Does this make sense? ALso needs to be done before August 1st so any advice would be helpful.

Thanks in advance!
