Backup BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express for IBM Lotus Domino - 5.0.3


I would like to know best practice for backing up BES express 5.0.3 for IBM Lotus Domino. I found that 1 step is to take a backup of the BESMgmt database. What other file is important and needs to be back up?

I only backup the database, but exporting your SRP and CALS, server name BES name is good to do as well.


I use a VM snap shot when making big changes.


If you push any apps you should backup that folder too
