Upgrade From Bps 4.1 To Bes 4.1
 
Hi

I have BPS 4.1 server connecting to MS exchange 2000 and MS SQL 2005 which I would like to upgrade to a BES 4.1 server connecting to MS exchange 2000 and MS SQL 2005. Any ideas, hints or tips will help. I am still a newbie on :bb:

IMHO wait a couple of weeks for 5.0 to come out.

To upgrade to BES 4.1 full version, you will have to fork out $$$ to upgrade - of the top of my head $3k.

With 5.0 round the corner - you might want to wait for it, get clarity into what is happening with regards to an SBE version and pricing etc before doing anything.

Thats what I think - maybe I'm wrong...

Thanks for the advise though. I actually got the software and an additional 20 CAL's from RIM for free, so I will just mosh on with this version. If you have any ideas or tips it will be cool. Thanks for warning about the pricing!

Free...from RIM....???

What was your trick and how can I pull it??

Hahaha! Yeah we are a fairly big construction company in South Africa. I guess RIM over here want to get into our good books since that will mean a lot more business for them!

How many users do you have now?
Is it a full version or an upgrade?

We are now on 10 users for BPS. The BES 4.1 is a full version.

IIRC you can install BES over it and use the new SRP during the install.

Should knot be too painfull to do. Might take about 20-30 min if BPS is on dedicated server.
