How did it go for everyone who installed Exchange 2003 SP2 on BES? Any issues?

Thanks

Was SP3 ever on the BlackBerry site? I thought it was another week or two away.

I didn't see that other post. I disagree that the two articles contradict.

Article A states that there is an Exchange problem for which the Outlook and Exchange Service Packs apply. Nowhere does it state that Outlook or Exchange Service Pack 2 are required on the BES to correct this problem.

Article B states that you can have Service Pack 2 on the Exchange Server just not the BES.

Article A states that BES 4.0 SP2 and prior or BES 3.6 SP6 and prior will cause duplicate calendar appointments if used within an Exchange 2003 SP2 environment. It also states that the issue would be fixed in 4.0 SP3 and 3.6 SP7.

Article B states that RIM is not aware of any issues with applying SP2 to an Exchange 2003 environment - which, since its in a RIM KB article, I'm sure this is applicable to an Exchange 2003 environment that communicates with a BES server.

So I'm curious. If Article A states that there is an issue with duplicate calendar appointments when SP2 is applied to Exchange 2003, however Article B states that there are no known limitations, then is there really no contradictory statement being made?

I will grant you that the no known limitation is confusing.

I thought you were referring to a contradiction in that one article states that SP2 is not supported on the BES yet while the second article says it's supported in 3.6 SP7 and 4.0 SP3. Based on the previous context of discussions my interpretation made sense since the topic had been about SP2 on the BES.

nah, i can somewhat understand the reasons why SP2 would not be supported by RIM, but only to an extent. but their official statement saying there were no known limitations, despite publishing an article not even a month ago stating that there was an issue, a major one at that (imo), is a tad bit misleading.

Now, back to the support in question, I have noticed that RIM is a bit late to support products that have been released in beta, especially freely available to developers for sometime now. This happened with Outlook 2003 and now with Exchange 2003 SP2. a lot of companies who develop products that integrate with various messaging services (or other applications) tend to take part in the beta processes and/or pre-beta processes. This can be seen with hardware manufacturers developing drivers for their video cards or sound cards for Vista. I'm curious if RIM has even installed BES on Vista or is making plans to update their product to support Vista prior to street date. The beta periods and developer betas are there for a reason - so when a fairly popular product hits the streets, they won't be caught blind-sided by those products when their customers are obtaining said upgrades.

In response to the 'support in question', that sounds like an ideal world ;)
