BES Exp 5.0.3 to 5.0.4 Upgrade

I am preparing my Blackberry Server Express to upgrade to new Version 5 SP4.

My exisiting config is  Blackberry Server Express Version 5 SP3 (5.0.3 MR2 (Bundle 21)

We run this on a Windows SBS 2011 Standard Server.

Your upgrade manual is causing me some confusion.  On Page 20, Supported Environment, it says  "WILL support installation of BES Exp on the same computer as the messaging server".

But on Page21, Unsupported Environments, it says that BES Exp for Exchange does "NOT support installation of BES Exp on the computer hosting the messaging server".

Please confirm which is correct and that I can continue to BES Exp on my SBS 2011 server.  We only have 15 users.

 

ALSO, is there a simple upgrade document ? I already have the BES Exp database running under SQL so do I have to do any other prepartion before running the upgrade ?

Please use plain text.

Page 21 must be wrong as I know many that do install on mail server.

 

when you get the installer there is a manual or look at my signature for the manauls
