Issues restoring 2014 SQL DB to SQL 2017?

We are preparing to upgrade to 2020 EPDM. We are also upgrading to new servers running Server 2019 vs. Server 2012 R 2.  We are running SQL 2014 with EPDM 2019 SP 0.  We are in the trap of OS's not supporting the apps we plan on running. Long story short, I will be forced to upgrade the current server to 2019 SP 5. Then perform a server move of EPDM to the new 2019 server which will be running SQL Server 2017. Once there I will be performing an in place upgrade to EPDM 2020. Has anyone observed any issue(s) with restoring a 2014 instance of the Conisio DB and a vault DB to SQL 2017?

 

FYI SQL 2014 SP 3 support is end of life at 2021 SP 5 of EPDM and you will need to purchase SQL Server 2017 with CALS separately going forward.
