I am currently at v4.1.5 of BES for Exchange, and would like to apply the updates to 4.1.6 mr2. What is the process I need to take to get there? Can I apply 4.1.6, then mr2 at the same time, or do I have to wait for the devices to start responding and then apply mr2? I just know from experience (upgrading to 4.1.4 then 4.1.5 that it takes about an hour and a half before all the devices start sending/receiving e-mail again).
Solved! Go to Solution.

I would take a backup, apply SP6 (don't start services) apply MR2, and restart server.
After about 90 minutes, restart the server again.

Thanks for the reply. I take it there is an option at the end of the 4.1.6 update that you can select to not start the services? What's the second restart of the server after 90 minutes for?

Yes, absolutely. Just uncheck the box that asks to start services at the end of the installer.

In case there are any hung threads ... its a good way to flush out the server after the initial set of mailbox rescans.

After a normal reboot of the BES server, how long should it take for all mailboxes to be read? It seems since the 4.1.x upgrade, it takes longer than it used to, so I typically choose not to reboot the server during the day.
