Default New to BES for Lotus Domino 6.5.5

Please Login to Remove!

Hi all

I'm *trying* to install BES for Lotus. I've downloaded the free edition, which will supposedly give you 10CALs to use (right? No catches?)

Anyway, I have a few questions

1. We can install BES on the current Domino server?
2. If not, what needs to be done?

The install guides have been kinda confusing to me, so I'm lookin for any help.

Thanks!!!

You get 1 (one) free CAL with the download.

You don't want to install it on a currently existing server...

The Install Guide details exactly what you need to do ... what other specific questions do you have?

If you have never done this install, use a test domino server rather than going straight to production. This way, you get a practice run on how it is done.

Call RIM and request for a Test CAL and License which will give you access to 10 users and will work for free for 90 days. When you decide to make this a production BES Server, Inform RIM and they will charge you for the number of licenses you want to purchase, issue you a new CAL, and you update it on your BES Manager and you are ready to go.

If you are using ND 6.5.5, I would suggest using BES 4.1 SP4 and using that version as a test.

Get accustomed to it, read the admin guide, and you will be fine. It goes step by step if you are installing a new server and what the pre-requisites are.

If you are missing something, this forum is a great tool for info. Search first, if you dont find it, then post and surely you will receive a response.

Just to add: BES is an add on task to the Domino Server. You can install it on top of the domino install--

So what's the difference between a CAL and a user? I don't mean to be dense, it just confuses me. When I signed up for the download, I got this:

Product(s) Ordered
BlackBerry Enterprise Server 4.1 for IBM Lotus Domino QuickStart Edition - 10 user

Everywhere I read says it only supports 1 user. We have 3, and quite posssibly a few more if this install is successful. Thanks a lot to everyone who responded!!

They are the same. You need 1 CAL (user license) for every BlackBerry you put on BES.
