MSDE to SQL 2005 move went great. Came straight back up, no probs!
I increased messaging agents to 5 and performance is way better with far shorter last contact times to devices now.
I'm going to do the knife edge cutover tomorrow.
Here's my plan...
* Build new server.
* Install BES 4.0.7 with same BlackBerry Server name.
* Stop and disable BES services on old BES.
* Amend IP reservation so new BES takes IP of old BES (this makes life much simpler in my environment - for MDS and SRP routing out to Internet).
* Start BES services on new BES
Couple of questions...
Does it matter what IP address the server has when I actually install BES? I.e. should I change the IP reservation before I install it.
Do I need the JDBC for SQL on this installation because it's a new install?
On the blackberry.com knife edge cutover documentation, it mentions the MDS...
Additional Info |
When using BlackBerry® Mobile Data System (BlackBerry MDS) Services, you must create a new mdss and mdss_dis database. A knife-edge cutover of the BlackBerry MDS Services is not supported.
Note: MDSS is supported only if the BlackBerry Enterprise Server name is not changed.
What does this mean? And how do I create the new DB?
Thanks in advance and thanks for all advice so far.
