Finally upgrading from 11.3 to 11.7. Is a D&L absolutely required since I'm not doing a major version upgrade (like v12)?

thanks

No. A major version change doesn't require a D&L either, just a backup and proutil dbname -C conv1112.

D&L is only required for database platform migration or for various restructuring tasks, e.g. implementing Type II areas.

I would suggest a BI truncate before backup and conv1112. But that's probably me just being extra cautious.

Thanks for the info.

Would moving from a Win2008r2 server to a new Win2016 server count as a platform migration? Sure, moving from Win to Linux would but what about Win to Win?

As long as it's Windows to Windows, you can backup and restore to move from one to the other.
