I just recently ( 2 days ago) installed BES 4.1.4 on a stand alone win2k3 server in an Exchange 2000 environment to service less than 10 users. The number of users will never really increase above 15 in its lifetime.
The question though is about Desktop Manager.
Our users will be using 7100i's on Nextel network and 8830's on Sprint's network.
Primary use is email and intranet access through the BB Browser. No device teathering for modem use is needed as all of my users have Sprint air cards.
My question is: Since the device OS can now be upgraded OTA, is there any reason to run BDM? I'm just trying to eliminate any excess work for myself.
As far as media transfer is concerned, being the only IT guy in the company, I'll probably be the only one usign that functionality.
On a side note: These forums helped out a hell of a lot getting my BES to work. From start to finish I didn't have ANY problems. I couldn't say that if I had not read these posts.
