Updating SQL server for insight

Valued Contributor

We are looking at updating from ST7 to ST8 and we are using Insight.


I believe that it's not a requirement to update the SQL server beyond 2008 R2, (although I remember a while ago it was said ST7 would be the last on SQL Server2008).


However I have to opportunity to future proof our installation, at least for a while.


Are there any pitfalls I should be aware of with regards to updating the SQL Server?


Basically my plan is;

Update the SQl Server.

Uninstall Insight Server ST7

Install Insight Server 2010 and Maintenance packs

Update the Clients to ST8 and Maintenance packs.


How hard can it be....... Right?
