Hi Lokesh, yes, 10.2.1d is certified for SQL Server 2016, Windows 10 (with a few esri patches) and Windows Server 2016. Please see our supported versions page below:
GIS - Supported Versions - 10.2.1d ArcFM Desktop, Designer, Designer Express, Network Adapter, Fiber Manager, Conduit Manager, License Manager, and Object Reader for Desktop
Thanks for the info.
Does any one upgraded from SQL 2012 to SQL 2016 and ArcFM 10.1.1 to ArcFM 10.2.1.
I am looking into 2 options: in-place upgrade (upgrade SQL 2012 to 2016 and ArcFM) or green fields implementation i.e build SQL 2016 and create ArcFM and Process databases and configuring tables. It seems 2nd option seems more work.
Does any one have any thoughts or ideas on the ideal approach to upgrade both SQL and ArcFM GDB at the same time.
Option 2 would very much be more work because you would have reinitialize Feeder Manager and a few other processes.
We're on Oracle, but the process is the same. Very briefly:
1. Update SQL server
2. Install and run the Esri upgrade processes on the updated SQL server
3. Install and run the ArcFM upgrade.
Depending on your setup, there could be a few intermediary steps.
Hi Lokesh, sorry I didn't get back to you before now, I was out visiting a client this week. David is correct below. I would upgrade in place. take a backup of the SQL database(s) of course, then upgrade the installation to SQL 2016. I'm not sure how many people have upgraded to SQL Server 2016 yet, but most ArcFM users are currently on 10.2.1(something). Eagle is the first line of support for you. Perhaps Aaron Sapsford or another one of our colleagues there can assist. Please let us know if you have more questions or want to share your success!
