It seems our previous CTO made off with our BES CDs as they are no where to be found in the company, and he purchased them from a reseller of BES.

After talking to RIM and the reseller I found out that neither one is responsible for lost or stolen CDs, I even had both parties talk to each other and got the same result, I asked the reseller "so what your saying is we bought a $4500 piece of software from you which is now garabage because you will not replace our stolen CDs?" They just shrugged their shoulders.

I found some bills that show we bought version 3.6 of BES even though we are running 4.0, I have the keys and SRP which I found in BES itself. So I don't see what the issue is with providing us with the CDs without any licenses so that if we had to do a rebuild; like we have to do now; we can apply our current SRP to the installation and be off to the races.

Does anyone know where I can get my hands on a the CDs for 4.0 without licenses?

The kicker here is our current BES has 170 licenses, and looking at Telus's pricing for BES and Licenses makes our BES worth about $8000 CAD or more. It just doesn't impress me the CTO took our software and not only that installed the software onto a CLONE machine with no redundant hardware.

I have a Dell PE 1850 with BES's name on it.. Now, sigh, I need the software. :(

Any suggestions would help me a lot!

If you have TSupport from RIM you get any version of BES that you wish, 3.6.7 4.0.4 or 4.1. It would be cheaper to just get Tx1 Support and then you can have any version of BES software you wish. Not it is not on a CD but that is what a Burner is for! :P
