  1. Awesome guide! Can you go directly from 2015 to 2016 including Service Pack 1? Or do you have to go from 2015 -> 2016 -> 2016 SP1?

    1. Matt,

      You certainly can. I would imagine on your 2016 server you’ve installed SP1 before you import your 2015 database.

      Sorry for the delayed response. Better late than never!

      Bob
