SQL 2008 - SQL 2016 RRS feed

  • Question

  • We shortly upgrade the OS of our server from Windows 2008 R2 to Windows 2012 R2.

    This server has SQL 2008 installed which will be upgraded to SQL 2016.  

    Since all the DB's are stored on our storage, we want to know if we can simply detach it from SQL 2008 and re-attach it to SQL 2016 one the new OS & SQL 2016 install back.

    Is it safe to do so.

    Thanks to advise.
