| | Multiple Exchange Environments - Same BES Router in DMZ?
Please Login to Remove!
My question is this - Can the same Blackberry Router server in a DMZ be used with multiple separate/distinct BES environments?
Any help is appreciated. Some context is provided below...
I have managed to find documentation which says that one Blackberry Router router can be used with multiple BES servers, but it does not qualify if the BES servers can be connected to completely separate Exchange environments.
We will ultimately be merging two Exchange environments together (both have their own separate Active Directory Forest/domain), but for now they both need to be co-located into the same Datacenter (and they will be kept as separate domains/environments for now).
The existing Datacenter has a Blackberry Router in the DMZ (Version 5.04 as far as I am aware), and has it's own BES environment on the LAN (which talks to the local Exchange 2010 environment). All is working smoothly.
The business that is moving sites has it's own separate domain, it's own Exchange 2003 environment and two BES environments (BES 5.0.4 & Blackberry 10.1.1). Their BES servers both access the internet directly from the internal LAN (through a firewall), but in the new Datacenter they will need to use a Blackberry Router in the DMZ (local security policy).
I would like to avoid deploying multiple Blackberry Routers into the DMZ if possible, but I still need a solution that is offically supported.
