Default Replacing the existing BES server with a new one

Please Login to Remove!

I'm planning to replace our current BES server. We're using Lotus Domino for email. What are the procedures? What do I need from the current server?

Save the entire Lotus\domino\data folder on an accessible share.
If you use local MSDE, make a copy of that (instructions are on the RIM website somewhere). If you use SQL, just make sure you have the server/database names.
Save a copy of the Server.id file from the Lotus\Domino folder also.
Make sure you have the BES SRP ID, Authentication Key and License Key.

After you have installed Domino and BES on the new hardware, copy the contents of the old lotus\domino\data\BES folder over the new one.
Restore the MSDE database if required.
Good luck!

(1) Cutover doc
KB-04261 - How To - Perform a cutover to another BlackBerry Enterprise Server
http://www.blackberry.com/knowledgec...63007&vernum=0

However, be aware if the new computer has a NEW name... if you installed the new BES, restore database and DO NOT change the relevant database record in ServerConfig table, you will see 2 instances in BlackBerry Manager.. I do not see this as known issue... but a LOGICAL error...

(2) KB-05264 - Support - Cutover results in two instances of BlackBerry Enterprise Server in BlackBerry Manager

Cheers!
