Thanks so much for your exp with the update process. Glad everything is working for you! I am in the midst of doing an inline upgrade and soon thereafter a cutover to Win2008 x64. This should be helpful! Thanks!


Hey Kevin--

You are most welcome. I hope your cutover goes well. Be sure to read the supported matrix re: OS / upgrades / SQL / etc.

I would like to migrate to 5.0 but I would like to use the same configuration database and not create a new one. Would I still use these steps to migrate. I have 4.1 SP6 and I do not want to reactivate any blackberry devices. I have 3 blackberry servers with about 400 users


One question. Should the name of the new BES Server be the same as the old one? I've seen other posts that say that is important when doing a migration. I noticed that both your old and new were named "BES"
