SQL upgrade and migration

I’m a lowly PM with a project where we want to move from SQL 2014 to 2017; Upgrade the servers from 2012 R2 to 2019 and migrate the server instances (High Availability within a cluster) from soon to be EoL bladed hardware and SAN storage to new Blades and SAN storage.

We can’t migrate to the new h/w yet because it has not been approved (SA&A) but the DBA refuses to upgrade on the current h/w and then migrate to the new h/w once it is approved. He says it is too risky (steep SLA penalties).

Does this make sense? Or am I crazy?
