Version: BES 4.1
Messaging: Exchange 2003 SP2
I am going to be performing this "knife-edge cutover" and the directions are not very detailed. Wondering if someone has come across a more detailed instruction set.
The reason I want to do this is to move my BES server to another server and retask our current BES server. No, it will not be going onto my Exchange server.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Knife edge cutover process is very straight forward, some key points to focus would be
1. Same "BESName" on the new hardware where you plan on installing BES (the bottom of the 7th screen in BESX 4.1.x installer)
2. Install same version of BES on the new hardware that was on the production (old hardware, the server you are cutting over from)
If you have remote SQL server you can skip the following
3. During the process of migrating the BESMgmt database ensure the database schema on the new SQL server is updated as well
If you have any questions during the cutover process please feel free to engage our support team by calling in for immediate resolution. If have you have specific questions during the cutover process, feel free to ask the forum members/moderators.
I hope this helps,

If you launch the Blackberry Server Configuration and go to Blackberry Server tab you should see the Blackberry Server Name: _____ In my case I call it BES.
just snap shots this screen as you will need the SRP ID and key for the new BES server.

I am getting the MAPIInitialize (80004005) error on BES setup. I have the Exchange Manager installed and the MDAC components. I couldnt get MDAC SP1 to install on Windows Server 2003. But I do have MDAC 2.8 installed.
I've Googled and everyone else says the same thing: install Exchange Administrator.
Any ideas? thank you in advance.
