BES 5 Cluster / HA Solutions

[ Edited ]



I need to plan the budget for new bes server(s).

I'd like to have two servers for higher availability. But in the Admin Guide - Chapter 8 "Configuring BlackBerry Enterprise Server high availability" I can't find how this can be done.


Is it like windows cluster? Two differnt nodes (different ip and hostname) and one virtual node (cluster ip and cluster hostname).

How do I set up bb web desktop manager? On one machine or both? Will the synchronize?

How about the other services - can everything be made high available?


And what about licence cost? Do I need an additional bes license? Do I need a second SRP ID?
