Blackberry Enterprise Server Consolidation

We recently just merged with another company and I'd like to consolidate their BES server for exchange to just one server located at my location. They are both running the same version 5.0.2.28. The question I have is regarding CAL's and user setup.

 

CAL's - Is it as simple as exporting the cal key from their server and importing to mine?

 

User setup - Is there a tool that will export their users and enable me to import?

 

Any suggestions are appreciated.

 

Thanks for the help.

Click on BlackBerry Domain on the left pane.
Then in the right pane, select the 'Global' tab, expand 'Account', and choose 'License Management'.
You should see:
License Total:
Used:
Free:

or

From command-line, you can do the following:

bcp "select LicenseKey from BESMgmt.dbo.LicenseKeys where type = 0" queryout c:\licensekeys.txt -c -T -R -E -Sdbservername

That will export all installed license keys to the text file specified in the command. Just be sure to change dbservername to your SQL/MSDE server. This needs to be run from a server/machine that has bcp.exe installed, though (installed by default with SQL and MSDE installations).

 

 

there are ways to export users and import but being on a different exchange org will be fun matching them unless you are exact.

 

how many users are we talking about?

Re: Blackberry Enterprise Server Consolidation

I'll be using the information that is included in this documentation to Export/Import the CAL. As far as the user setup is concerned I'll be manually setting those up as you mentioned they will be coming from anothe Exchange org.

We are talking about 35 - 40 users. Not that much of a nightmare :smileyhappy:

 

Thanks for the response!
