It's pretty painless but BACKUP first the database, reg entries etc. and make sure you have original disks, and paper records of SRP ID & Auth code & CAL details.. just in case it all goes a bit strange..
My worst was a 3.6 to 4.0 upgrade, which to get working I had to hose the OS and start from scratch - but the original 3.6 implementaiton (not mine) was pretty screwy anyway!
Yeesh, the 3.6 to 4.0 upgrade was the stuff of nightmares.
Okay, I'm resigned to doing a db migration first, I have roughly 200 users living in that database, if all goes well, how long you think to move everything and bring the BES back up? The Change Advisory Board is breathing down my back.
