Hi there.
Still using a old 7.1.2 patch1 version in my vsphere 5.1 environment.
Now it's time to think about an upgrade and I'd like to move from linux appliance to windows based version (I feel more confident with my veeam backup and replication software backing up windows vm's instead of linux based vm's....)
Now the question:
After creating a win 2008r2 vm with obviously an empty database, am I allowed to extract directly the backup (about 100 mailboxes, 4 domains and 120 GB of mails)to this updated version or should I follow progressive steps (7.1.2---7.1.4---->7.2.4-->7.3.3-->7.4.3---8.0.0)?
Is a jump from 7.1.2 to 8.0.0 allowed?
Thanks in advance.

Is that such a complex question?

You should always restore to the same version. And after that do an upgrade.
