Hi sirs/mam,

Having question to be clear, just bit confuse right now. I want to full back up only PI DA 2012 (version 3.4.390.16) from PROD Server and to restore it directly to PI DA 2017 r2 (latest version) to NEW Server. Is there gonna be unexpected behavior or issues?


Scenario something like this


This is my (PROD SERVER) hardware requirements:

OS: Windows Server 2012 R2 or window server 2008

PI Server: PI Server 2012 version: 3.4.390.16

PI AF: PI AF Server (x64) 2012 version:

SQL Server: Microsoft SQL 2008 R2



This is my (NEW SERVER) for Testing Environment

OS: Windows server 2016

PI Server: Latest version PI Server ( 2017 )

PI AF: PI AF Server (2017 latest)

SQL Server: SQL Server 2014


and how about OS Version is it possible too we do not have any issue regarding on it?
