Default Move BPS to New Server

Please Login to Remove!

Hey guys.. I am running BPS on Server 2003.. I would like to move to a new machine running Server 2008.

I only have two users.

Would it be better to jsut to a fresh install and not mesh with DB migration?

Thanks!

KB10278 - How to perform a knife-edge cutover for BES 4.x - Port3101.org : Your BES Connection

Should work for BPS.

For Task 3.. I am not running MSDE or remote SQL.. I am running a local version of SQL2005 which I believe BPS installed. Do I still follow KB03112 to move and reconnect to the DB?

Task 3

Move the BlackBerry Configuration Database to the new BlackBerry Enterprise Server.
Note: If you are running a remote Microsoft SQL Server and you want to continue using it, skip this step. If you are running a local installation of MSDE, download and install MSDE 2000a from the Microsoft Download Center before proceeding with the back up and restore procedure.
Back up the BlackBerry Configuration Database, and then restore it on the new BlackBerry Enterprise Server. For instructions, see KB03112.

I am not sure if it will be possible since server 2008 is 64 bit and I don't think that it will run on a 64 bist os

Right... but no x64 version. x86 is 32 bit.

I never said I was going to use x64..LOL

Anyway... in step six it says to use the same server name.. the new server I am using will not have the save name as my existing BPS server. . can I just install BPS and copy the mdb and ldb over to the new server and start the services?

The BPS instance name must stay the same name if you want to use the original DB.
