Upgrade BES from 4.0.3 to 4.1.4

Hi, we are planning to upgrade BES from 4.0.3 to 4.1.4, can anyone let me know step by step setup/upgrade instructions, and will all the users subscribed to BES will effect?

 

Where can I find the upgrade version download?

 

Quick response is very much appreciated.

 

Thanks,

Praneeth

Praneeth -

 

To upgrade from 4.0 to 4.1 you must either have TSupport agreement which entitles you to free software upgrades or have access via some other method (through agreement with carrier / etc)

 

You didn't say if you were using Exchange or Domino ... so I've linked both upgrade guides from http://na.blackberry.com/eng/support/docs/.  That said, if you're going to 4.1 SP4, why not go to SP5 or SP6.  At a minimum make sure you apply all of the MRs for SP4.

Sorry, I forgot to mention; yes all users will be impacted.  They're receive updated IT Policies and service books.

Great, contact RIM / TSupport and ask them for a link to download it.  If you have credentials to login to the BTSC you may be able to get it right from there.

 

I always plan for 4 hours for an update.

 

The upgrade usually takes about 15-20 minutes including a backup and then a few hours for service books to be sent out and policies to be updated.  Typical user impact is really only 30-45 minutes total.
