The plan is to upgrade a reasonably large BES 4.1 infrastructure (approx 4000 users) to v5.
The question I have is what do I need to buy? If anything? I've read conflicting reports over whether the SRPs and CALs are compatibile with v5. If they are compatible, can I just download the trial version, install, then move the SRPs and CALs when my BES 4.1 servers are offline?
I'm really sorry if this has been answered elsewhere, I have searched - I promise!
Thanks in advance,
the upgrade is not free, it is about $999.00 USD per SRP.
CALs for the most part will transfer over, cept for an SBS or free ones you may have aqquired.
I posted a lot of info here on upgrading BES 4.1.6 MR3 to BES 5.0.3 - BlackBerry Support Community Forums
