Migrating Master Images form Windows 2012R2 to Windows 2016

Andy White1709154166




We use XenApp 7.15 LTSR CU2 (soon to be CU3).  We have:


2 x Netscalers

2 x StoreFronts

2 x Delivery Controllers (RDS and Citrix licensing)

2 x DB servers (SQL 2012)

1 x UPM server

20 x Windows 2012R2 VDAs


I've been asked to look into what is involved to upgrade our master images to Windows 2016.  Has anyone undertaken or blogged this please?


I never built this environment, but update the master images using MCS and also keep the environment up to date form an LTSR perspective not CU level as I've had bad experiences.


I'm not sure about this licensing side or whether I can update the master images and leave the backend servers on 2012R2 for starters then somehow do those?

Hi Carl, 


So the 2 x StoreFront servers will need to be on 2016?  Can you explain how I would upgrade these with minimal downtime?


Does this mean the other servers can be left alone for the moment?


So I would need another 2016 server built to control the RDSH with the 2016 CALS and are will these license the 2012R2 Apps/Desktops?
