2 servers co-exist possible??

Dear all, currently we have BPS 4.1 working with Exchange 2003.

We want to go to BES express 5.0.3.

 

Lets say currently we have 20 users in the BPS 4.1 environment.

Can I install a BES server and have that co-exist with the BPS server, and slowly move 1 user at a time to the new BES environment?

 

thx.

Re: 2 servers co-exist possible??

yes they can both co exist, but can not both be installed on same server.

 

each BES needs its own server OS.

That not a problem, I will have them on different servers.

So technically I can have 10 of my users on the BPS 4.1 and the other 10 on the BES EXpress server talking to the same exchange server. correct?

 

Now, can I use the same BESADMIN account or do I have to create two different accounts?
