Default Upgrading 4.0 SP4 to SP5a on Exchange

Please Login to Remove!

Hi.

My BES is 4.0 Exchange, SP4 Hf 4. I wasgoing to upgrade to SP5 this weekend, but went to download it and all I can see if Hotfix 1,2 & 3 and a SP 5a. I can't see a SP5.

Can I just install the 5a Service Pack onto SP4 without going to SP5 first?

I just checked RIM's website and confirmed what you are finding. I would think sp5a and then the 3 hotfixes for sp5 would be the order that you need to go.

I'll try 5a...Not sure if I would need the hotfixs, as they should be in 5a...Wonder if I try to install them it will say "Don't bother" ?

Interesting thing I noticed, the hotfixes for 5 have a date posted later than the 5a posting. Did you notice that? You may have to apply them?

No I didn't! I've just put 5a on and it is reporting BES 4.0.5a (bundle 23) in Add/remove progs.

I'll stick HF1 on and see what it does...

Yes, you need 5a then HF1,2 and 3

HF1 puts it to bundle 28...
HF2 puts it to bundle 33...
HF3 puts it to bundle ??...

This entire discussion is lost me.
I am installing sp5a tonight,then going straight to hotfix 5, skipping 1,2,3,4. Is that what your supposed to do? Aren't all the previous hotfixes in the latest?
