Upgrade Path to SP17

We are currently in the development stages of planning to upgrade to SP 17 from SP9. Does anyone have a "timeline" that I should follow? Are there any SPs that I should add first or can I go straight from 9 to 17?

Hi Anthony,

you should be able to upgrade from SP9-17 ok. One big issue is with the attachments. There have been a lot of recent posts on the problems encountered and the fixes.

just don't forget to read the readme.htm that comes with the patch. It contains important information about the changes. ( like the instructions on upgrading the attachment structure)

Re: Upgrade Path to SP17

We just upgraded from SP2 to SP17 without much impact. The web-api (not sure I like SP9 required a new web-api)need to be upgraded for Java API programs and the attached work already describe we the things we saw that I recall. We did a table schema diff and saw just a couple new tables and no real modifications to existing tables so our SQL direct reports we not impacted either. Also, with an upgraded web-api file we did not even need to recompile our Java programs.
