Bes4.1 to Bes Express

[ Edited ]

Hi Guys

 

Just a quick question. My compoany has decided to take off BES4.1 and reinstall BES Express 5 on our current server.

I was just wondering if this is something easier to do. I am aware that we may have to reactivate devices and may have to reset the phones as well

we currently have

 

SQL server 2005.

 

Server 2003 hardware specification:

 

Intel Xeon CPU E 3113 3.00 GHz

3.99GB RAM

500GB HDD

 

Do you think this is good enough to install Blackberry server Express for around 55 users

 

Please Advise

Yes, it improves on reads. I hope you have some form on RAID on your server. Raid 5 will be ok.
