Default Migrating from BES 4.1 to 5.0

Please Login to Remove!


We currently have one BES server running in combinatin with Exchange. 130 users. What would be the best way to upgrade to 5.0? Would in-place be the best way or should we install a new server and move all users?

What are your experiences?

May I recommend a quick search of the forums for migration. You're asking a pretty general question on migration and it can depend on many factors. Check out some of the set ups on your search results and determine which mirrors your current setup. Then you'll have some specific questions you can pose.

In my case, I ran 4.x from physical servers on Exchange 03 with remote SQL. Spun up both BES and SQL to new VM's and ran the transporter tool. Very easy and very clean.
I'm actually lost...
