Default Help with moving everthing from old server to new blackberry server

Please Login to Remove!

I am a new BES in this Forum. We just built a new bb server, I'd like to know how to move the database (BES 3.6 and MSDE 2000)from old server to the new server. Do I need to shutdown the old server first before bringing new server up on line? Your help would be appriciated.

Thanks but this article was showing how to upgrade to 4.0 version. we still want to stay with the old 3.6 version. There is a way you can show me step by step how to back them all up and moving to the new bb server.

Thanks,

Dan

Same process. You might need to verify that the two tables you have to change in the BESMgmt database are the same, but otherwise the process is exactly the same.

We're still using Exchange 5.5. If we install BES 3.6 on Windows 2003 Server. Is that working with Exchange 5.5? Please be advised.

RIM recommendation:
Checklist for BlackBerry Enterprise Server v3.6
for Microsoft Exchange 5.5
Software Requirements
Windows NT4 Server SP 5 (or later), or Windows 2000
Server SP 1 (or later)
Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.0 (or later) if running on
Windows NT4 Server
Microsoft Exchange 5.5 SP 4 (or later), on a separate
server
Microsoft Exchange 5.5 Administrator SP 4 (or later)
CDO.dll Hotfix Q312273 (version 05.05.79.2655)
obtained from Microsoft
Outlook should not be installed on the BlackBerry
Enterprise Server. If it is, wireless calendaring will not
work.
MMC 1.2 and ADSI 2.5 for NT4 Server installations
Create the BESAdmin account and the BESAdmin
mailbox.
Have a database strategy MSDE or SQL and the
software.
Permissions and tasks for the BlackBerry Enterprise
Server:
Windows permissions: local administrator, log on
locally, and log on as a service - to the local computer.
Exchange permissions: service account admin
permissions on the Site container and the
Configuration container.
Note: There are additional considerations for a BlackBerry Mobile Data
Service (MDS) install refer to the Installation and Getting Started Guide for more details.

Caution: If Exch5.5 is running on an NT box and the BES is running on an Win2003 box, you may encounter authentication issues at the OS level.
Reason: NT uses NTLM Win2003 uses Kerberos by default. The security architecture of the two OSes are very different.

Thanks for the info. I have another question if you dont mind. If I can install BES 3.6 version on Windows 2000 Server. MSDE 2000 should work with w2k server or MSDE 7.

Thanks,

Dan

Stick with MSDE2000, less headaches that way. The db format of MSDE2000 is similar to SQL 2000, which makes it easier if you are doing an upgrade of the BES3.6->BES4.0, or migrating info from MSDE2000->SQL2000
The upgrade path from MSDE7->SQL 2000 is longer and the db formatting issues that you would encounter is not worth the effort.
With MSDE2000...if you had to upgrade, create from scratch, re-install or whatever....you are keeping the environment (BES) current wrt Windows200X architecture.
