Default Quick SQL question w/ 4.0

Please Login to Remove!

I currently run a 4.0 BES with SQL2K on the same box. I would like to move SQL to another box, is that possible? If so, is it difficult?

No not difficult. It is fairly easily done. We're in the process of doing it ourselves at the moment.

Stop SQL on the BES. Copy the MDF and LDF files from the SQL directory to the new server. Associate the new SQL server with those MDF and LDF files. Go into BlackBerry Server Configuration on the BES and change the Database configuration to point to the new server. Go into BlackBerry Manager and the Properties of the BlackBerry Manager and then to the Database tab and change things there as well.
In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and is widely regarded as a bad move.
