upgrading SF and Delivey Controllers to 2016 from 2008 7.15LTSR

Jeremy Andersson



I am looking for the best procedure for moving my production sites from Windows server 2008 to 2016.

I am thinking of a few scenarios but i can't seem to find much info on this.

What would be the best procedure?

I have to upgrade 2 Storefonts and 10 Delivery Controller to Server 2016.

Do I build the Storefronts first and have the current Delivery Controllers set up here while I build the new DC machines

or build the DC without adding DB or machine catalog and then take them group by group ?

Any ideas on how to deal with this ?

7.15 LTSR and SF 3.12. Not version upgrade. Only OS.

I always follow below procedure.


  1. OS Upgrade and install Storefront  and join to farm.
  2. Add the new server into LB if you have.
  3. Disable the older server from LB.
  4. Monitor the users for few days.
  5. If No issues reported continue with second Storefront


Follow the same procedure for DDC
