Default upgrade from 3.6.3

Please Login to Remove!

I have a 3.6.3 asuming its an SBE when i look in the properties it says I have maximum 15 cals, so I guess its SBE (someone pls verify this) my question is when i do upgrade from 3.6
1. do I have to reinstall BES and move all the users or i can simply enter the update key to move to enterprise from SBE
2. if I upgrade from SBE to Enterprise does all the SBE cals get transfered or i have repurchase all of them ?
pls help

Can't help on the upgrade from 3.6 to 4.1 but the SBE to full BES is just a case of entering a new licence key. This will give you 5 more licences and remove the 15 user limit. Just remember if you ever have to rebuild that any SBE licences must be added before you add this new key.

This is correct, you need to get an SBE upgrade CAl from your carrier this removes the SBE 15 CAL limit and takes you to full BES status. You still keep the SBE CAL's on your BES for use after the upgrade.

Like DavidAdams says if you ever rebuild the BES you need to enter the CALs in the correct order. SBE CAL -> Upgrade CAL -> Any other full CALs purchased since then

If you are going to upgrade to 4.1 you need to take 3.6 up to Sp7 before going to 4.1.6

You upgrade to Sp7 then run the database upgrade (forget where) and then the install of BES 4.1 (it is an upgrader to enterprise) can continue.

Hi Guys,

i just want to make sure, as i know database in 3.6 and 4.1 is different, so you need upgrade to 4.0 and then 4.1.

But in this thread all you have to do is 3.6 upgrade to 3.6 sp7 then to 4.1 ?

in this case SBE with BES full version is not issue.
