  • Hi,

    once on the test server, you can do in-place upgrade to 2013 and 2015 and then to 2016. Running validation tools is not mandatory and I would skip it and focus on fixing everything on the latest version of CRM and not bother with the "temporary ones".

  • Hi,

    I tried to upgrade from CRM 2011 to CRM 2013 by in-place upgrade but it gives below error.

    so do I have to migrate CRM from 2011 to CRM 2013 then migrate to 2015 then migrate to 2016 then fix issues but in this case I have to prepare separate servers.  please let me know the best solution.

  • From 2013 environment, export customizations and directly import to 2016. Then import data.
