Hello, just a quick question: If i start learning 2016 tp5 will I be able to do an in place upgrade to the final release, or will I have to do a clean install. I don't want to get a setup working well just to have to destroy it and re-create it in a month.

Thanks
Marsh

Build 14393 of windows server (presumably RTM) is available, so no need to think about upgrading from betas.

I was planning on doing it legitly. Just didn't know if I should wait to redo the servers, or do it now and attempt the upgrade down the road.

If your doing it on your own I would rebuild when going to RTM. If your in one of Microsoft's beta test groups, then it's a fully supported scenario.

It's good practice backing up and restoring your configs. But you should be able to perform in place upgrade to RTM.
