BES coexistence
I am currently running BES 4.1 and I have new hardware to install BES 5.0 on. Can BES 4.1 be running at the same time as BES 5.0 so that I can easily migrate users over one at a time?

Thank you.

Yes, that works. You can use the transporter tool to move users over.

Contact RIM to get your Migration Kit. This will help you with your migration.

I assume the migration kit comes with a second temporary SRP id and some CALS?

Also, note that the transporter tool requires, I believe, your devices to be at a certain OS level (4.5 perhaps).

Yes the migration kit comes with 90-day SRP/s. That SRP is for your new server. Once the 90 days is up, the SRP you got actually becomes the one you stick with and your older one expires.

Correct, you do need a minimum OS for your devices. Since you are migrating to BES 5.0, it's best to see if your carrier has approved an OS to 5.0 or greater. It's important to check as your OS may be new enough to migrate to 5.0, but any device that is under OS 5.0 will not be able to take advantage of all the new features BES 5.0 has to offer.

Many thanks for your updates, I will be contacting our provider shortly to find out if they can provide the kit.
I will be issuing brand new handsets on the new server so they should be be fine with BES 5.0. I am hoping Vodafone will support OS 5.0 too.
