Default Re: Migration of BES 4.1.7 environment to BES 5 / ESX / HA

Thanks very much for your inputs!

As the users on the international server are our "independent" remote sites, we have them run on a seperate bes instance ... but that mainly comes from the time we had to restart the servers and do manual maintenance in order to fix some user problems ...

I was thinking to centralise the BAS & BMS + the Attachment & Collaboration Service on a small seperate VM - which operates for all three servers. With native VM reduncance.

So it's leaving the BES server instances with their specific critical components, for which an HA could be build up. But as they are also VM, the only advantages of having an dedicated HA would be the insurance against configuration & service components errors, as well as nice patching procedure without downtime.

Because with the VM hardware technical the servers are save ...

Am I missing something ?

Thanks again !
