I've got a Sharepoint 2010 site running BI with PowerPivot, Performance Point, Reporting Services, etc all nicely configured.
We're planning to move it to a new piece of hardware and upgrade it to 2012.
What would anybody recommend on the order of doing this? i.e. If I were just upgrading from 2008R2 to 2012, I'd stand up a 2012 server, copy over backups and restore them, then start changing their compatibility levels.
But now I need to move stuff I haven't before... is it better to move my 2008R2 system to the new hardware, and then do an in-place upgrade to 2012? Or should I install 2012 and then somehow move the sharepoint system from the 2008R2 feature set to the 2012 environment?
Been looking for a white paper, but Google is failing me. So I'm wondering if anybody else has done this.
