BES Express installation on Windows 2008 Core and clustering

Hi,

 

Is it possible to install BES Express in windows server 2008 core?

 

Also, is BES Express a cluster aware application? I am planning to create a failover for BES Express.

 

Thanks!

Windows 2008 is supported as the OS.
Express does not support HA, you need the full BES for that - but you should think about BES10 for the new OS10 devices anyway.

Oh I see. I thought that 2008 core server is not supported as its not mentioned anywhere on the blackberry documentation. Our number of Z10 users are increasing and right now we are using activesync as its email communication. It really pose a problem on our owa server as it gets congested as the number of BYOD users are increasing. Anyways we are still awaiting management decision on the BES10 upgrade.

Server Core is not supported since there is no GUI available to setup a MAPI profile or look at BES Server properties.
