add exch 2010 to exisiting bes 4.1.7 / exch 2003
 
Hello,

I just have one or two questions.
Currently, we are using BES 4.1.7 in an Exchange 2003 environment.

Both are going to be upgraded in the near future, but the management for any reason decided to upgrade exchange first - so I think this can become a little difficult.

What I thought of is creating a coexistense and migrate only non blackberry users to exch 2010. The besadmin and blackberry users will stay on exch 2003 - is this a point that should work?

Is there any other way? like migrating all users to exch 2010 and keep the besadmin on exch 2003?

iŽd appreciate some help

cheers

No, the BESAdmin account has to be moved first, see

but the first version is viable? just adding a 2010 to the exisiting 2003 server?

Yes, that should work. But have a look at the co-existence KB of MS:
