400 users on BES 18.104.22.168 for Domino using MSDE.
220 users on BES 22.214.171.124 for Domino using the old-way .nsf databases.
I want to consolidate to single BES, so I built a new BES 126.96.36.199 for Domino using SQL on a separate box. (Obviously with number of users can't do MSDE on a single box).
My plan was to migrate users in waves, and want it to be seamless.
In tesing, I have discovered that when using the "import users from legacy bes" function from the 4.1.3 BES, although user can send/receive mail okay, it breaks their attachment service and ability to delete off mailbox and handheld. If I try to do an EA at that point to fix those items, I get errors regarding policy and prompted to wipe handheld first. I really don't want users wiping handhelds.
(Freshly added users to new BES work fine, and I haven't even tried the 2.2 BES)
I've explored the "knife edge" option, but would have the added consideration of migrating MSDE to SQL.
Why is the "import" function there, if it doesn't actually work?
BES 188.8.131.52, 0 users (Sunset 8/31/10, Sunrise 5/2004)
