BES 3.6 > 4 upgrade question

[ Edited ]

currently have BES 3.6 on a server we currently own.

 

looking to upgrade to BES 4.0 but wish to put this onto a new server we are about to purchase.

 

what would the process be with regards to licencing and in physical terms for decomissioning the old server and installing onto the new server?

 

thanks for any help.

Ok, first off, you don't want to upgrade from 3.6 to 4.0.  You want to upgrade to 4.1 (preferably SP6).

 

The cool thing, RIM has a nice KB article all about this: KB10354 - How to perform a phased upgrade of BlackBerry Enterprise Server software version 3.6 to 4....

 

From a licensing perspective your current 3.6 SRP and CALs are fine, you just need to purchase a one-time upgrade for $999 USD

 

If you have specific questions about individual parts of the upgrade ask away!  Make sure to read through the documentation for BES 4.1 SP6 specifically the upgrade guide.
