Question BES server IP address change, doable?

Please Login to Remove!

If I want to change the IP address of my BES server, will it cause any problems?

SQL and BES only care about the domain server name and the BES servername. I'm thinking mainly of SRP problems, will it disconnect me, as the IP address change will be quite quick?

Thanks in advance

I've changed my BES IP (v4.0 exchange sp4.3) on a couple of occasions. Everything works fine after the change, but I always reboot it just to make sure everythings ok when it reboots!

Yeah the only time you would have SRP problems is if the same SRP ID is connected to the RIM infrastucture using two different IP's, or if the SRP connects and disconnects 5 times in 1 minute.

Both of these senarios will cause RIM to suspend the SRP ID.

In addition to what was said above which is correct, Do a node test and if you use your attachment viewer on a separate server (like I do due to load balancing), you will have to change that entry there too.
