I'm curious about how well the upgrade from 2008 R2 to 2014 goes.  We have quite a few SSIS packages in the MSDN database as well as forms authentication in the SSRS server.  Other than those two items, we're pretty basic.  Any help is appreciated.

the links below provide a wealth of info on this topic.  you'll need to be running sql2008r2 sp3 to upgrade to 2014. and your current machine will need to be able to support 2014.

requirements for sql 2014

if there is any chance you can install 2014 from scratch and backup the 2008 dbases and restore to 2014, that might be a better way to test 2014 and make sure everything works properly at least prior to upgrading from 2008 r2.

Thanks, Rick81.  Do you have any comment on how well SSIS packages upgrade and/or if forms based SSRS will still work.
