We were acquired by a larger company and now need to point all our MII interfaces from one ECC system to a different one. In doing so we need to stand up a Development Server. We also need to upgrade our MII version. Are we better off cloning our existing Server and then Upgrading? Or would we be better off building a new server from scratch at the higher version and then exporting and importing the Project?
Or does it matter much one way or the other?
I will suggest new servers from scratch with higher versions and then importing the project.
This will help with the following:
- Avoid any issues in hardware upgrade
- Possible new version of MII and related libraries
- You can build a parallel production system to verify the connectivity in advance.
It will need additional testing and setup but I think it will be worth in long run.
