Default BES 4.1 upgrade questions

Please Login to Remove!

We are getting set to upgrade to 4.1 SP2 from 4.0.4 BESX. Our corp purchaser placed the upgrade order through our vendor Cingular and then provided me the besx_4.1.2.exe which should be the entire upgrade.

I am a fairly new BES administrator and this is my first upgrade--wouldn't the upgrade procedure ask me for an upgraded key of some sort to authorize 4.1? I want to make darn sure I have everything I need to do this upgrade during the scheduled window.

Any advice? We do not have TSupport.

You should not have to change the key.

I just did this exact upgrade 2 minutes ago..just waiting for my server to be done rebooting to see the results. It was very straight forward, I just hope my SQL databse isnt messed up.

thanks for the feed back guys. My upgrade is Friday and I've prepared the best I can for any issues that may arise.

That's the Mobile Data Service. In previous version of BES it showed in a tab.
