Default Enterprise Transport Tool

Please Login to Remove!

I am migrating users from a BES 5.0.2 server to a new BES 5.0.3 server and am attempting to use the Enterprise Transporter tool. Both servers contain a local SQL db, the old is SQL 2000 and the new is SQL2008.

Initially, I migrated a small group of users, approximately 5 without any issues. I then proceeded to migrate 30 which appeared to go well, but I then discovered that several of the users were no longer receiving email. To allow them to receive email, a re-activation was required.

I still currently have approximately 600 users to migrate, and am hesitant to do so until I figure out what is going on with the enterprise transport. Anyone got any suggestions? Right now, I am considering moving my 30 users back to my old BES and doing a knife edge cutover.

For starters, the Enterprise Transporter tool is supposed to be used for migrating from BES 4.x to BES 5. You really shouldn't be using it for a BES 5 to BES 5 migration.

Is there any special reason you decided to attempt the move in this manner?

I would definitely go with a knife edge cutover instead of the transporter tool.

We wanted to do it with a phased in approach, and Tsupport said this would be the best way to go, now they are suggesting that we do a knife edge.

Tsupport has not been great on this one, they can't even offer an explanation as to why the Enterprise Transport tool failed.
