Default Full download of BES software for reinstall

Please Login to Remove!

Hello gang,

Is there a download location to get a full install version of the BES product? We would like to re-install onto new hardware, but the original BES media we have is long gone (I think we have been using the same server since BES 3 or so, and have just been updating it along). I can't imagine that the recommended action would be to reinstall such an old version and then patch it anyways.

I can only seem to find upgrades and patches, but not the actual base install files.

Well the plan is to reinstall on new hardware. Currently we are 5.0 SP2. I talked to Blackberry just a few minutes ago and the lady I talked to told me that, despite my thinking it was crazy, I would either have to buy a new copy of the latest version or use my old 3.6 (the version we originally installed) disks and install the updgrades and updates that have come out since then. That seems really, really backwards to me!

If your SRP indicates you have BES 5.0 you should be able to download that. Do you have TSupport?

sully you are not crazy if you have SBS CALs and wish to use them.

I dont know why you can not use HA to fail over to new hardware.
Is you database corrupt?

Yeah I assume that also but can't confirm as I did not ask for a one for a really long time.
