Default Re: BES upgrade 4.1 to 5.?

OK it turns out that the distributor has managed to get bes 5 full for no charge. Not sure how he managed that I won't be complaining

Now I am just in the process of creating a new server and will be using the bes transport tool.

I have got as far as the CAL and SRP configuration screen. I have been reading some forums to see how other people did it but there has been some different responses.

1) is there a way to make sure that all our cals will work in bes 5 as i heard about some free ones that might not work. I think we might have got some free ones at some stage. cant say for sure.

2) I have read that there can be some issues with copying the CAL over because they are already in use in the old server. I read some people were using trial CAL until all users were moved across, do you have any more info on this and suggestion, we have 75 cals and 70 in use.

3) In the CAL option during set up there is only one field for CAL but we have about 20 cals some 5 some 1 some 20 etc. Not sure which one to use.

4) srp information (ident and auth key), can i just copy that directly from the 4.1 options and paste it in to the configuration page. I am still updating our firewall nat to the new bes lan ip so can't use the verify button yet.

Is there any problems in using the same service account that was used in the 4.1 server? I thought it may easier that way as all permissions should already be set up. I ran the IEMSTest.exe on a temp account that does not have a bes account setup and all the tests passed ok except:

Temp User 5: No Send As permission for the {domain\besadmin} account operator.
Temp User 5: Configuring User... failed

I checked the send as permission on the temp5 account and besadmin has send as permission. Is this just a glitch ?

Was there any changes from 4.1 to 5 for the service account that would need updating. I read the upgrade guide regarding permissions and double checked them but not sure about this send as failed test.
