Default Upgrade BES 4.1.4.12 to BESX

Please Login to Remove!

Hi there,

My normal login doesn't work anymore, so I had to create a new account

I have a customer on BES 4.1.4.12 and I need to upgrade it to BESX 5.0.3 as we have an app I need to deploy and the developer tells me that the current BES will not work.

I have done a cut over in the past between BESX 5.0.3 installs, but is it possible to do the same (ie backing up the database and restoring it) between BES 4.1.4.12 and BESX? As it would save me having to re-activate all the Blackberry's.

This install is on Lotus Domino, local database.

Any help or advice would be greatly recieved!

I can only talk for Exchange, but you could setup a fresh 5.0.3 server with a blank DB and then use Transporter to move people over without the need for new activation.

Hi Freakinvibe!

I'm trying not to sound like a newbie(!), I haven't come across Transporter before. Could you point me in the right direction? I'm assuming its a BES tool?

Kind regards,

Yes, it is part of the BES 5.0.3 resource kit.
