BES Compatibility/support for Windows Server 2012

Hi,

we are wanting to move from Windows Small Business Server 2003 to Windows Server 2012.

However, there is no information at all about whether the BES is compatible with, or supports, Windows Server 2012.

 

If we can't get any info at all, we will have to move to Windows Server 2008, and then upgrade at a later date when it becomes supported.

 

Does anyone have any information or experience in this regard? Has anyone managed to install BES on Windows server 2012?

thanks

Re: BES Compatibility/support for Windows Server 2012

thanks, that's very helpful.

So, am I correct in thinking that if we already have BES installed on Windows Small Business server 2003, and we migrate to new hardware and software (Windows Server 2012), BES should work OK on the 2012 operating system, and with SQL 2012, as long as the Blackberry Configuration database has already been created successfully from SQL server 2003/5?

Let anyone coming here know that BES is now supported on Windows 2012.  I landed here looking for the same answer.
