Windows Patching BES 5.0.2 for 2008 R2

Hi,

 

 I need to apply windows patches to my BES. We're running BES 5.0.2 on a 2008 r2 Ent box, I'd just after some advice on patches will not break the BES. I'm planning to install all security and critical updates, other than those relating to SQL or .net upgrades.

 

 I have access to the BES, but not exchange 2010. Am I right in thinking I can download and install all the patches mentioned above, reboot, making sure services are ok as normal?

 

thanks

Here are some that might get you in a bind. SP3 for BES will resolve most of these.

 

 

using 2008 Global catalogs?

Thanks for the reply, we only want to install windows updates at the moment, so I'll choose to take a backup image of the BES beforehand and avoid the patches you specifically mentioned.

 

 If I did upgrade the service pack  on the BES, I take it I'd need to upgrade the mapi and CDO versions on Exchange as well?

 

thx

No need to touch Exchange. Mapi is for BES only to talk to exchange unless BES is installed on Exchange. Then you only install CDO.

 

Most likely you dont need to touch CDO/MAPI when doing a service pack since it already works with your current version of exchange.

Cool, thanks for the advice.

 

 I'm planning on taking a wmare clone before applying windows patches as a possible rollback candidate. Can you see if any issues in reverting back to the vmware clone if the BES gets broken by a windows update?

 

 Obviously I won't have the clone and the BES on at the same time.

I dont see why it would not work.
