Upgrade 4.1 to 4.2 on a new hardware with a new cms db

Hi,

unfortunately there are many contradictory information on this subject.
Is there a recommendation for an upgrade from 4.1 to 4.2 with a new hardware and a new cms database?

Current configuration for 4.1:

BI 4.1 SP7
Oracle Database 12
Windows Server 2008 R2

New configuration for 4.2:

BI 4.2 SP4
HANA Database 2.0
Windows Server 2012

Is there a recommendation for this update scenario?

Thanks,
Zaki

    The only working option you have for your scenario is what Jawahar mentioned.

    Install 4.2 on the new machine, using new CMS DB and make sure it is working correctly with sample reports.
    Then migrate content from original system using Command line interface :

    Since you are going with new version of OS, install 4.2 on the new box and promote the content using promotion management from 4.1 server.
