Current AE server runs on Windows 2008 R2, current DB MSSQL 2008 R2 10.50.  New windows server 2016 stood up for AE but using same version of MSSQL for DB.

What is the best approach to upgrading from 10.4 to 11.2 under this scenario.  Can I copy AE 10.4 from old windows to new windows, then do an upgrade install for AE and DB?  Can I do a new install for AE on new server, but do upgrade install on the DB?  what is the best approach?
