0. Backup Tableau Server
1. Stop Tableau Server
2. Uninstall Tableau Server on Master only
3. Install 8.0.7 on Tableau Server (Master only -- it'll push changes to your workers)
4. Start Tableau Server.
Downtime depends on how many extracts you have on your server as they are backed up during step 2. and "migrated" during step 3. Your downtime is essentially however long it takes to uninstall & reinstall Tableau Server...
Thank you for elaborating on the same. I'm confused when you say Uninstall Tableau Server.
Does that mean configuring server again and adding worker nodes?

No problem. When you uninstall, we leave behind metadata on the Server so we automatically “remember” all the details you just asked about. When the configuration dialog appears for you, it’ll be pre-populated with all the info you had before.
Hope this helps!
Thanks Russell, will implement and check the same.
