I've done as much research as I can without creating a thread, but I seem to either get conflicting opinions, or different scenarios not exactly like mine.
Basically there is a 3.6 BES server with approx 90 users on it that is being decommisioned. I have a new server I would like to move them onto, and get up to 4.1 BES at the same time.
Is there any reason we can't keep the same SRP in this situation? I don't understand why I keep reading about different SRPs during migration.
Assuming I can use the same SRP, what would my migration strategy be? One solution stated I should install 3.6 on the new hardware, and migrate over, then install\upgrade 4.1 . In this case I would think I could just copy over the DB and point the new BES 3.6 to it, then upgrade. Correct?
Is there any way to just install 4.1 on the new server, and import the userlist from the old server? Using the same SRP just disable the services on the old 3.6, start them on the new 4.1 and be done?
Also I've considered since its only 90 users, and 2 very simple IT policies, I could build the new server, and add the users and IT policies from scratch, and then just stop the 3.6 server, start the new 4.1 server. Would this also work, and would there be any wipe\activation issues on the handhelds?
Also, what are the handheld impacts in each case? I was under the impression that using the same SRP no handhelds would need to be wiped or activated again. We're not concerned about new features at this time...only keeping the email redirection in place.
I appreciate any insight and advice. Thank you very much in advance.
