Default BES 4.0 Demo version expired

Please Login to Remove!

Hi gurus, i have some questions i hope you can help me..

I have a demo version of BES 4.0 installed with Lotus Domino R5 emailing system.

My problem is the demo version already expired..

1.) Is it possible to just renew the CALS from the BES License Manager then everything will be fine both on the BES Server and the Handheld clients?

2.) Can i reinstall the demo version using different CALS?

3.) If not, how will i install BES 4.0 again... i heard you will install COMMERCIAL BES as reinstallation of BES DEMO is no longer valid..

Kindly advise me thank you.

First DEMO is only for DEMO no for production.

1) Yes you can renew this, if you have a new SRP and CAL for demo
2) Yes (and a different SPR key)
3) To change the temporary Blackberry Enterprise Server license and Service Routing Protocol (SRP) authentication to permanent values

1. In the BlackBerry Enterprise Server Management console, right-click BlackBerry Enterprise Server Management, then select Properties.
2. Remove the temporary license key value, replace it with the permanent key, and click OK.
3. Right-click the BlackBerry Enterprise Server name, then click Properties. The System Info window appears.
4. Replace the temporary values in the SRP Identifier and SRP Authentication Key fields with the permanent values for the BlackBerry Enterprise Server, then click OK.

If you do not have the permanent values, contact your service provider to obtain them.
5. Restart the BlackBerry Enterprise Server for the new information.

With devices prior version 4 you need to cradle the BlackBerry devices.
