Hi Mohamed,

Check below:

You'll basically do the following:

1. Stop the BE services and grab copies of the Data/Catalogs folders.

2. run the upgrade.

3. run LiveUpdate to install any additional patches on the media server.

4. Push-install these patches via push-install to your remote servers to upgrade them.

Same situation here (BE 2010 SP4 on WS 2008 R2).  I would like to upgrade our media server to WS 2012 R2 before installing BE 2014 though.  Is there a way to do a clean installation of the OS and BE 2014, then import the catalogs and an existing Dedupe folder from BE 2010?
