Default In-place upgrade of Windows server

Please Login to Remove!

Hello,

Although I don't think there is any pending issues but I could be wrong and so I just want to check with the experts before I proceed with the Windows server upgrade.

I have to upgrade the blackberry server from Windows 2003 to 2008 std edition. The Small business server with Exchange 2003 is on another server. If I upgrade just the Windows operating system on the BES 4.1.6 server, would there be any issues that you see? This will be an inplace upgrade. Another question is what should I back up on the BES in case something went wrong.

Thank you so much.

BES 4.1.6 is not compatible with Windows Server 2008. See the compatibility matrix:

So it's on your own risk.

Contacted RIM and was told that I can download Blackberry Express 5 for free! What is the catch?

Reduced functionality, which may not affect you anyway. Top amongst them is a greatly reduced set of IT policies. Download the docs and check it out.
