| | Upgrading BES 4.1 to 5
Please Login to Remove!
Am am planning to upgrade our BES servers to v5. I have the following configurations:
Two BES servers running 4.1.6 MR7 and a seperate SQL 2005 box with the database.
One BES has 360 users, the other has 20, so 380 in total.
following reading the documentation, and this forum and getting myself totally confused, the upgrade plan I intend to take is:
Move the 20 users from the second BES onto the first one.
Remove BES 4.1.6 from the second BES and install 5.0 pointing it to the existing database.
Move some users from the 4.1.6 BES to the new 5.0 BES and make sure it works.
Move all users on first BES to the 2nd BES
Remove BES 4.1.6 from the first BES and install 5.0
Is that a viable solution for the upgrade, or have I misunderstood the instructions?
My other question is when I install the 5.0 on the first server I am upgrading, will it update the database and if it does, will the 4.1.6 BES still be able to work?
thanks in advance
