We're planning our upgrade from 7.7.02 to version 8. We have identical prod and QA single server environments with Report Caster. Has anyone had any luck doing an in-place upgrade or is building a new server the way to go?

I don't think you can do an in-place upgrade the information is stored differently in 8.0x
I worked with IBI and we stood up a new server and then migrated everything to it. The migration worked fine though though adjustments were needed after migration. I am mostly just playing with the security and what I can and can't let people do in 8 and that where the adjusting is coming into play.
