CALS and SRP on new BES 5 Server

I'm performing an upgrade to BES 5, using the the cutover process. I have obtained a temp SRP to use, so we can run the current and new system at the same time (migrating the users over in groups).

 

Is it possible to use the same CALs from the BES 4.1 system in the new BES5 enviroment?

Yes most of them should be fine, there is an issue when using more than 1 free BPS CAL if you ever used one and an issue with SBS 15 user CAL. you will lnow when you add them in if it is an issue.

 

 

 

FYI

 

Click on BlackBerry Domain on the left pane.
Then in the right pane, select the 'Global' tab, expand 'Account', and choose 'License Management'.
You should see:
License Total:
Used:
Free:

or

From command-line, you can do the following:

bcp "select LicenseKey from BESMgmt.dbo.LicenseKeys where type = 0" queryout c:\licensekeys.txt -c -T -R -E -Sdbservername

That will export all installed license keys to the text file specified in the command. Just be sure to change dbservername to your SQL/MSDE server. This needs to be run from a server/machine that has bcp.exe installed, though (installed by default with SQL and MSDE installations).

Thanks - I've exported the license keys without issue. I do note that some of the license keys start with BESX35 - will these cause any problems given the move to v5?
