| | Do I upgrade the configuration database for a phased 4.x to 5.x express migration?
Please Login to Remove!
I currently run 4.x and am building out a new 5.x server and I'm going to move my BES users to it. I want to do this with minimal impact on my end users (no re-provisioning, no losing device options, no password resets, minimal down time, etc.). Do I need to upgrade the configuration database or should I create a new one?
I saw this statment in the upgrade document: "The BlackBerry Configuration Database and all BlackBerry Administration Service instances in the BlackBerry Domain must be the same version. Before you upgrade the BlackBerry Configuration Database, you must stop the BlackBerry Administration Service services that run on all other computers in the BlackBerry Domain until you upgrade the computers." Does that mean upgrading the configuration DB means I need to stop all the BES services on the existing 4.x server, effectively taking it out of service? I'm not exactly sure what the administration service does or what that means so I wanted to check.
