Migrate Crystal Server 2008 to Crystal Server 2016

Our business currently runs Crystal Reports Server 2008 V1 and we are interested in upgrading to Crystal Server 2016. We are wondering if it is possible to install Crystal Server 2016 side-by-side on the same machine as Crystal Server 2008 and then use the Upgrade Management Utility to migrate what we have over to 2016. Would this scenario be possible, or would we need to install 2016 on an entirely different server and then proceed to migrate using the utility?

Any information is appreciated.

Thank you

Hi Jason,

I would recommend installing them on separate servers.

Both use different Tomcat versions, will need different Ports and may have other unforeseen issues.
