Default BES 4.1.6 Install on VMWare 2008

Please Login to Remove!

I am new to BES Administration and have current 2003 server ending maintenance life. I would like to do a new install on VMWare but do not know where to get access to the actual install files. Is this something you get through your carrier? I understand you can only have one SRP in use at any given time. Thank you in advance.

You can just download the trial and use your SRP.

Sounds more like you want to do a knife edge cutover so users will not have to EA when done.

My notes
Bored, so might as well do what I recomend so often, The Knife Edge Cutover
