Removing BES

Hi,

We migrated all users to newly installed BES in same domain. I would like to decomission/remove old BES.

Do I have to worry about CAL?

 

Thanks

Re: Removing BES

Thanks ...

Yes, new BES is working just fine.

Is there a document/article that I can use to validate that CAL will be available to new BES after removing first installed BES?

Re: Removing BES

Did you make a new database for the new BES?

 

if yes then

 

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).

No, its not a new database. It is same database. Same Domain.

Re: Removing BES

the database holds the CALs so you should be fine there.

 

turn off old BES and see if all is ok
