Default Upgrade/migrate from BES 4.0 to 4.1 question

Please Login to Remove!

Hi there,

We have BES 4.0 on a box that is just about to die. I need to migrate it to an another server. Should I try upgrading the current to 4.1 then use the migration tool to move the people over to the new box which will have a fresh install of 4.1?

I also need to change to a different Exchange server at the same time, so after the migrate change the MAPI profile to point to the new Exchange, or should I do that prior to the user migration? The current Exchange instance is on the same box as the BES and I need to move the users to a new separate Ex2003 system.

I would do the move in Exchange first, and make sure you current BESAdmin account has permissions on the new Exchange server. Then once the new Exchange server is up and running do a cut over with 4.0

Livelink - Redirection

Then do a simple inplace upgrade to 4.1...

Good luck!
