Migrate BES from Lotus Notes 8.5.2 to Exchange 2010

Hi

I need to migrate BES from Lotus Notes 8.5.2 to Exchange 2010. Is that possible without having to wipe all devices and reregister them ?

yes

 

look at bnator to assist you, it is not free though

 

there are a few posts around on it

 

your current SRP and CALs willl work on the new BES server too

it allows you to use a new SRP and teh old SRP will be invalid after about 60-90 days or so.

 

it does not help with a migration to a diff mail platform.

Hey Knottyrope,

 

We're going to use B*Nator to migrate 6000+ users from Domino to Exchange. You mentioned that you can still keep the same SRP and CALs. How does that work?

 

Thanks

BES SRPs and CALs are carrier AND platform agnostic (does knot care)

I see an issue here: the same SRP used on 2 different BES will disable it. How does B*Nator get around that?

Re: Migrate BES from Lotus Notes 8.5.2 to Exchange 2010

most people use a migration kit when they have T support with RIM

 

If you dont then maybe getting a spare SRP is needed.

 

How many SRP do you have? one BES can run 2000 users with good hardware.

Re: Migrate BES from Lotus Notes 8.5.2 to Exchange 2010

We already have 4 SRP ids and 6000+ CALs currently active on our source Domino 4.1 servers and have a premium support contract with RIM.

 

I've never used the migration kit before but found this KB which explains it all:

 

http://btsc.webapps.blackberry.com/btsc/search.do?cmd=displayKC&docType=kc&externalId=KB10945

 

Have you used the migration kit before?

 

Coming from a Domino BES background, I'll be initially putting a max of 1000 (heavy use) users on each Exchange BES 5.0.3 - however, even with top specs, I've heard that alot of Exchange houses don't pass the 1200 mark on their BES.

 

What's your opinion on that? Sizing etc...
