vRD 2011 - question about license and upgrading to 2012+
#1
Hey guys,

We have a vRD 2011 environment v. 7.0.3215.1 (Running on SQL Server 2012 SP4) and are looking into upgrading to the most recent versions of ASG. As far as I understand we have to first migrate the existing database to 2012, and then once that has been completed we can proceed with upgrading to the most recent versions.

I'm a bit confused as what this means in regards to our license (including vRD 2011 Info screenshot for reference) and have a couple of questions-

1) Can we upgrade/migrate our database to 2012 with the current license that we have? (see attached Info screenshot) Or do we first need to upgrade the license?

2) Once our database is on version 2012 do we need to acquire licenses prior to upgrading vRD to ASG 2018? Or is it all part of the same process?

3) Who should we point our Purchasing team to so that they could procure the appropriate license(s) we may need for this procedure?

I'm attaching a screenshot of our Info page in vRD 2011. Please let me know if there's any additional info you may need.


Thanks,
Alex

1. Yes you can download version 2012, upgrade should be no problem with your current license...

2. If you want to upgrade to the latest version you will need to buy valid licenses to start the data upgrade process

3. You can send an eMail to asg.rd@asg.com - the Sales team will assist you in upgrading your license

Hey Oliver,

Thank you for the response. In regards to points #1 and #2, do I understand correctly that once we upgrade to 2012 with our current license, we can purchase the most recent ASG license and upgrade directly from 2012 > 2018?


Thanks,
Alex

Yes! Just create a new environment in version 2018 and choose "Environment => Upgrade from 2012" - your data will be read and transferred to the new environment...
