We are trying to upgrade our Sp2013 Standard server with SP1. I read through the Technet document about 2 different recommended approach. http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff806331(v=office.15).aspx
1.Inplace without backward compatibility
2.Inplace with backward compatibility
Database Attach Upgrade:
I am testing in our Dev Environment first which includes 1 APP, 1 WFE, 1 Workflow, 1SQL Server.
My next step would be to take changes up to Qa and Finally to PROD.
I am preferebly going to take InPlace upgrade on this one. But between Inplace with and Without backward Compatibility which one is better suggested route, keeping in mind the PROD update in future involving minimum downtime and other factors related to SharePoint farm.
Your valuable input would be very helpful.
