SQL 2012 MIgration Planning Advice
I have posted two documents to assist with planning and implementing the SQL 2012 migration that I would strongly recommend that anyone planning to migrate to SQL2012 should read.
The first is called 'SQL Migration Planning Guide' (resource id: 21113) and it details our recommended timescales for implementing the SQL migration dependent on the software installed at a site.
The second is called 'SQL 2012 Migration Frequently Asked Questions' (resource id: 21101) and it provides additional advice and information to support you with the SQL2012 migrations.
Q. I need more information on the SQL 2012 migration with SOLUS 3
A. We have kept the SQL 2012 migration of the SOLUS 3 system outside of the SQL 2012 Migration tool in order to maintain security and we will be releasing the SOLUS 3.6 update in order to support the migration. SOLUS 3.6 will fully support SQL 2012 and it will contain functionality that enables you to migrate your SOLUS 3 system to a new server and enables the SOLUS 3.6 agents to redirect to the new server with minimal intervention. The SOLUS 3.6 release is not part of the SIMS 2013 Summer Release and is anticipated to be made available in August 2013.
