how to upgrade from BES 4.1.1.9 to BES 5.0

Hi, we  use BES 4.1.1.9 and plan to upgrade to BES 5.0. 

Here is information about our BES:

30+ users, microsoft exchange 2003, BES 4.1.1.9 is installed on Win 2003 32 bit server.

 

now we want to do the upgrade. We want to install BES 5.0 on another Win 2008 32 bit server but we want to use the same SPR.

 

is it possible? And how can we perform the upgrade?

 

Thanks a lot.

upgrade to SP7 on current BES.

 

Then you can do a bulk mode transfer with transporter of all user to new server.

 

but I would go for a Migration kit if possible or use BES express as a middle man and move to BES express then onto Full BES after. Migration kit is much easier though.

 

 

 

FYI

 

Since BES 5.0 is so different, I would set it up all on its own and once tested and running, use transporter to move users over which will not require any activation

 

Here is most of the documentation you need will to install and administer the BB 5.0 server:

Re: how to upgrade from BES 4.1.1.9 to BES 5.0

Knottyrope,

  Thanks for all those links! I am in the same situation as the OP. I have a BES 4.1.1.9 server on Server 2003 with Exchange 2003. I just installed a new machine with Server 2008 R2, Exchange 2010 and I want to install BES 5.0 on it.

 

  One of the links you provided lays out a plan for an upgrade, but you also mentioned a 'Migration Kit'. Is that an actual piece of software that I can purchase somewhere? Or is it a plan for a migration? I did a search on the site, but didn't come up with anything concrete about it.

 

Thanks for any help you can provide! :smileyhappy:

Migration kit is available from T support from RIM.
