I have a Server 2008 that was taken offline. However it has software and data that needs to be accessed.
I will only need this server for a few months but less plan on a year.
So to put it on the network what is the simplest solution?
upgrade only to Server 2012 (if that software is available)
or can I upgrade to Server 2019 without loosing the application(s) and data?
the application is retired but its data contains important information (read that accounts with money still owed thats not in the new system)
I have a Server 2012 and a Server 2016 on the network.
