    You could do a swing box migration as mentioned by Sefoundine, or you could do a in-place upgrade. Please

    see chapter 2 in Impl Guide:

    Implementation Guide Release 12.9.00

    The certification matrix says that you will need MS Server 2008 R2 (x86;64-bit only) as a minimum and MS SQL Server 2008 as a minimum.
