I've looked at the BES upgrade guide so I'm familiar with the knife edge approach I am just trying to limit downtime as much as possible with this upgrade.
I'm confused. How does moving users over and re-activating them all cause less downtime than shutting down their Production BES, doing knife-edge cutover then switching on new BES (say, 2 hours on a Saturday, for example)? All that happens then is that they get new service books and most won't even know you moved them.
As for testing policies first, surely you can do that to your heart's content on the trial machine and then once ready, do the cutover. Or am I missing something?
