Hello, we are going to upgrade a PI Collective node to PI Data Archive 2016 R2. The host is a virtual machine (VMware) and OS is Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1. Although OS version is supported by PI 2016 R2, we would like to upgrade to Windows Server 2012 R2 before upgrading PI. Is there any side effect in upgrading OS of the current machine? Our WMware system managers would rather provide a new Windows 2012 R2 server but we should reinstall everything from scrath in that case and this is something we prefer to avoid... If anybody in the community has already had experience on this and would share knowledge or lesson learnt we would appreciate. Thanks
