Goal

We frequently get asked how to perform an upgrade when one is moving to new hardware (i.e.  from one server to another server with the same operating system). In other words, you may want to upgrade a current environment before performing the same steps on a production environment.  You would like the environment to be exactly the same.

This document explains what is supported and best practice.
