Default Test server for BESx 5?

Please Login to Remove!

Hi Everyone,

Just seen that BESx5 is now out and Im very interested in implementing it here.

What id like to know is, would I be able to install BESx in Windows 2003 VM on our domain, then remove myself from the current production BPS and set myself up on the test BESx.

This would be on seperate hardware but connecting to the same exchange server.

Would this cause any issues? for instance with multiple connections to the blackberry interface from one IP? Ive read that they should be able to co-exist on the same server so assume this is ok.

This way i can get a good idea how the workings of BESx 5 before i chose wether to upgrade the production server to besx 5, we dont have anything as such pushing us, but would be very useful to me to have a system running on v5 to get used to (as my experience thus far has been 99% v4.x and a very small amount of v3.6). Hopeing to get some training and take the 5.x exams eventually too.

Thanks

you can run it side by side with BPS and even try tranporter to move you to the new BES Express 5.

thanks, just going to give that a try then, spent this morning loading up the spare licence of windows 2003 web only to find i couldnt install exchange system manager on it :/ so had to dig around and found an old 2003 std disc and licence from old action pack and loading that up now to test it out. Where can i get the transporter from, guessing somewhere on BTSC?
