Installation of BES10 whilst already having BES5 installed on LAN

[ Edited ]

Hello,

 

We are currently looking to install BES10, however before hand i wish to know if we will run in to any problems as we already have a BES5 server installed on our network.

 

We basically want to install BES10 and test before we roll out, however we wish to leave our current BES setup in place and functional whilst we do so.

 

I have built a new VM with Windows Server 2008 R2 installed, with the Exchange MAPI and CDO 1.2.1 installed.

 

Our Exchange server is 2010 and we currently have about 150 users with Blackberry phones.

 

Can you confirm that if i setup BES10 on the new Server this will or will not cause us problems with the current BES server?

 

Your time is greatly appreciated,

 

Thanks

BES5 and BES10 are completely separate, they don't share the same database or the same devices, so you can go ahead and do any testing you need to do without impacting the existing environment.

Re: Installation of BES10 whilst already having BES5 installed on LAN

Thanks for your reply.

 

I have started the installation process on the new server, however, i seem to be stalling on the SRP host and SRP authentication.

 

When downloading i dont seem to have this information anywhere?

 

I have had a look through the extracted folder from the file download, but i dont seem to have this information, where can i find this?

 

Thanks

Re: Installation of BES10 whilst already having BES5 installed on LAN

The easiest way to get these is to request a 60 day trial license. When you receive it, the SRP info will be included. If you decide to move into production you can just install non-trial licenses, you don't have to change the SRP at that point.

Hi SWOTAM,

 

Thanks again for coming back to me, the link you provided is how we actually downloaded our trial version, we did receive order information, however there is no information relative to the SRP.

 

Just Serial Numbers and License keys.

Re: Installation of BES10 whilst already having BES5 installed on LAN

In the email they sent you with the trial licenses, you should see something like this up top.

 

BlackBerry Device Service Server v6.0

Quantity: 1

  • Number 1 of 1
  • Serial Number: SXXXXXXXX
  • License Key: xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx

The Serial Number is the SRP #, and the License Key is the SRP authentication key.

 

They were in the information we received when we requested our trial, so if you don't have this info maybe request them again?

@AdamOwen1

 

When you installed BES10, did you have to port forward any port to BES10?
