Vault WG/Pro 2014 update paths
Updating your Vault server and client is always something to plan in advance, especially the server as it will take the Vault offline while it upgrades and then take time to migrate your databases to the latest version.
If you are running Vault Workgroup or Professional and are using, or intend to use the Subscription Release, then the latest service pack offerings from Autodesk should be handled with slightly more care than usual.
The following upgrade path is advised:
Vault > Vault SP1 > Vault Subs1 > Vault Subs1 SP1
You should ignore Vault SP2 completely where the Subs Release is concerned.
If you are not on subscription, or do not want to use the Subs Release, then the standard path of SP1 then SP2 will not be a problem.
A tip is not to launch the ADMS Console until you have applied all updates. Launching mid-way will require a separate migration for each stage.
