Hi all, I was hoping to get some ideas from everyone as to how to proceed with a BES upgrade.
4.1.3 (DST patch applied, CDO patched)
Exchange 2003 SP2 (proper patching)
SQL 2000 database on remote server
Here is my issue. I have 2 SRP codes (1 is utilized by the active BES), I want to upgrade the current BES (rebuild OS, complete format and rebuild) but I don't want any downtime for my users. I have another server I can install 4.1.3 on and I have a valid SRP code, I have tried a knife edge cutover with success (only a few users).
Once I move the users over to the newly built temp BES I plan to remove the original BES via Blackberry Manager, rebuild the server and reintroduce the server to the database. I would like to use the same name of the server, I am worried that there will be conflicts considering the name was already used before.
Any idea's, I dont want to have to reactivate 360 devices North America Wide and I don't want to spend 7 hours on the phone with TSupport (useless in my opinion)
7250 BELL, oldy but a goody
