upgrade to 11.1 FP1

Wondering if anyone has tried to move to 11.1 FP1 without upgrading 11.0 to sp4. Just a question so don't hit me too hard. Couldn't I,
Backup the system. Create new servers from OVA, and restore configuration quicker than 2 stage upgrade? I know I'll have to rehost the license, but that's quick these days.

Customer wants to move IPO off Hyper-V anyhow, so figured maybe this was safer than trying to fix potential problems after using the VMware migration tool.

Your thoughts appreciated, and thanks in advance.

RE: upgrade to 11.1 FP1

When using the method with Upgrade-Disk, you must upgrade to or preferably to as the first step.
It won't work otherwise. Some internal backups or steps to perform the migration are implemented. Also, you need to shut down the server using the :7071 menus, not just turn off.
You can still go the long way, with several backups, a fresh installation and then restore everything.
If going from Hyper-V to VMware, you have to do that anyway.

Thanks Albus2. I was hoping to get around the two step and then still needing to move the hyper-v to VMware. Much appreaciated.

RE: upgrade to 11.1 FP1

You must upgrade to to upgrade to 11.1 on Hyper-V, and you must go to 11.1 FP1. That could change with the release this weekend.

If I were migrating to VMWare I would do a backup and restore.
