Hi knottyrope,

Is BES 5 SP4 same as "5.0.4"?... you're also saying I can do a straight upgrade from BES 5.0.1 MR 2 (Bundle 117) to 5.0.4?

I'm planning to upgrade my Exchange Server 2010 to SP2.

So, is it okay for me to upgrade from 5.0.1 to Service Pack 4 right away?

BES 5 SP4 is same as 5.0.4. RIM says that you need 5.0.2 or 5.0.3 to upgrade to 5.0.4. So its better to download and upgrade to 5.0.3 first, than apply 5.0.4.
The update is for free as long as you have a license for BES 5.0

Re: BES UPGRADE ----> BES 5.0.1 MR 2 (Bundle 117) to the current BES version 5.04?

From RIM doc:

 


 

Administrators can upgrade to BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0 SP4 from the following software versions:

                        BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0 SP2

                        BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0 SP3

 

There is no direct upgrade path from BlackBerry Enterprise Server 4.x.

 


 

 

That means for me: No direct upgrade from BES 5.0 RTM and no direct upgrade from BES 5.0 SP1.

 

So this means 2 upgrades for you.

 

Regarding the Exchange upgrade: I would not do 2 things at the same time. If something is broken afterwards you will have no clue which upgrade broke what. So my suggestioni would be:

 

First do the BES upgrade(s), wait a week, then do the Exchange upgrade.

It is better to do BES upgrade first as it might not like your version of exchange being on first release.

 

good info on SP4 upgrade, I was not aware you cant apply it to Sp1 or lower.

Any best practices to upgrade from 5.0.1 MR 2 (Bundle 117) (SP1) to Service Pack 3 ?

You're suggesting that from SP1 go straight to SP3

How about the MR packs? Do I need to install each one of them?
