SQL Server Upgrade Caveats


Microsoft has some useful information regarding breaking changes, and discontinued functionality for those upgrading versions.

I’ve listed on a high level what to watch out for, plus the link to the Microsoft page if you need more info.

Remember that these issues are accumulative. So any issues in 2012 will affect a 2014/2016 upgrade if you’re still on 2008.

Also, 2016 is still in CTP, so things could still change before RTM.



I'm a Business Intelligence Developer working for a financial services company. My focus is on the Microsoft suite of BI tools.
