Upgrade to V9 and Windows Server 2016

  • 1.  Upgrade to V9 and Windows Server 2016

    after Microsoft finally released some Updates for CRM On-Prem we are currently trying these updates out.
    Installing Update 2.3 wasn't a problem but my colleague encounterd quite a few issues with the v9 Update.
    Because our Servers are running on Windows Server 2012 R2 the first thing was that we needed a windows Server Upgrade.
    So we tried that but then the problems began: All Website Settings from IIS were gone and we don't really know how to restore them.
    We tried a few things but nothing did really help yet.

    After googling for a little bit I also saw that during the installation (we didn't do it but our Network team colleagues) that there is a message which says that an upgrade to Windows Server 2016 is not recommended and a clean Install should be done instead.
    But how should we do that exactly? Set up new servers, install CRM there and then import the Org Databases?

    So my question is, did someone try to upgrade a CRM Application Server to Windows Server 2016 and did it work?
    Also did someone do the upgrade to v9 already and has some input on that?
