Horizon server running on W2K12R2 - want to upgrade to W2K16?

Jump to solution

I've done a few googles so far, but not seeing much yet about Horizon (Connection and Security)  7.3.1 servers OS upgrades from W2K12R2 to W2K16.

Anyone heard of folks doing this? 

Just wondering if there are comments and or warnings.  Smiley Happy

I would replace the security servers with UAG since they can be load balanced and don't require a 1:1 pairing. If not you would need to build additional security servers too.

The recommended way to do this is to build additional connection servers on the new OS version (e.g. W2K16) and add them to the environment as replica. Then decom the old ones (e.g. W2K12R2).

Thank you BenFB

That helps with my direction on the Connection server.

What about the Security server we have?  Suggestion for that one?
