Steps by Step Crystal report migration from Crystal Report XI(11) to 2016 (14.2.x)

Please help to get the details for below points ASAP.

My Scenario is very similar with Former Member.

Crystal Reports Server (CRS) XI(11) Upgrade to CRS 2016 (14.2.x)

1. How to upgrade Crystal Report XI(11) to Crystal Report 2016 (14.2.x) (can I direct upgrade CR 11 to version 14.2.x or first i need to do a middle step of migration if yes then which version)?

2. How to migrate the content (Reports, User, Group, Schedule etc.) of older CR11 version to new CR 14.2.x version (through which tool ? or if it will be done through upgrade management tool then can I import .BIAR file created from CR 11 into CR 14.2.x version)?

3. What are the major challenges while installing the CR 14.2.x version (Dev, QA and Production version) in same server?

4. What are the major challenges while moving the content from CR 11 to CR 14.2.x version in same server or different server?

5. CR 14.2.x having Windows OS but Oracle DB having Redhat (Linux) OS, Is there any challenges while accessing the data or creating the connection between these two Servers?

It would be good to have any kind of .pdf file that will be a best help for me to understand the customer upgrade.

    Unfortunately there is not migration from that old of a product. You need to migrate to XI R2 and then BOE 3.1 and then possibly you can get to 4.2.

    Best to create a support Incident in SMP and ask the BI-BIP-INS team for help.
