Default Moving from BIS to BES

Please Login to Remove!

I am moving my BIS users to BES and need help to know the correct way to transfer their messages / calendar from their lotus notes to the device

I am wirelessly doing the migration. But unless I erase all data, the calendar enteries and emails are duplcating.

What is happening is that the device to be migrated has already messages and calendar entries and when Enterprise Activation is done, it pushes the messages and calendar again seeing them new documents and duplicating them in the device.

What is the proper way to avoid this doubling/ duplication? I know I can nuke them or earse them but do a fresh intall bringing everything back but I do not want to do that. Erasing the data erases the Address book as well.

I thank you all in advance for your feedback

Nothing much you can do about it. Either way you have to de-dupe the data on the BB or the desktop.

Hmmm I don't see why this is a problem. Performing an Enterprise Activation should bring back the user's contacts and other PIM functions. This is how I usually do it:

1. Backup the device using Desktop Manager. In worst case scenarios, we can always do a full device restore.
2. Wipe the BlackBerry by going to Options > Security Options > General Settings. This brings the BlackBerry to a factory default setting.
3. Enterprise Activate. I use Exchange but I assume it is the same with Domino. Whatever data you have in your Notes client should be synchronized over after EA completes.

Maybe someone can confirm if being on Domino does bring back the data in the Notes client after EA.

Of course it does! That's the point of Domino BES.

x14 has this right. If you have data on a BB that you want to EA, then the data on BB and Domino will merge. If you don't want that to happen, you have to clear out the data from Notes or BB first, and let the other data "replace" it.

To be honest the original post is a little confusing

"What is the proper way to avoid this doubling/ duplication? I know I can nuke them or earse them but do a fresh intall bringing everything back but I do not want to do that."

I can't understand WHAT the poster is trying to achieve...
If the data is truly the same, and you are getting 100% duplications, then why wouldn't you want to wipe either BB or notes? And if you really DON'T want to wipe one or the other, then why are you displeased with duplicated data?
It's a bit of an unsolvable question.
