Upgrading to BES 4.1.6, MR3 and Security Update 2

Hi

 


We are currently running one server on 4.1.6, MR3 and Security Update 2 – this is a server that I just upgraded tonight from 4.1.5

 

 The other two servers, that hold the majority of the users, are on 4.1.5 and will be upgraded during the week. I understand that once a BES is upgraded, it resends the Service Books to all users. Bearing that in mind, a query popped into my head when upgrading the test box tonight, since I stopped all BES services and installed 4.1.6, rebooted, then stopped the BES services and installed MR3, then rebooted again, then stopped the Attachment and Dispatcher service to install the Security Update, then restarted them. 

 

Is all this stopping and starting of BES services wise considering the BES is attempting to send out Service Books? Would it be a good idea to keep all BES services remain stopped until after the Security Update has been installed (involving the replacement of the DLL files), and only then restart them?

Are you doing it in off hours? Its not really as bad as you think it is, as long as you stage it over a few hours

Yep, all happening in the wee hours of the morning.


I'm just paranoid about rebooting the servers when the service books are being sent out and having to re-activate people - or am I just being paranoid?

You can do the SP and MR and the PDF update with one reboot, just dont reboot and do the next item.

 

The reboot is more for starting services and remove a few files.

 

Stop SNMP service also before you begin. Or you will need an extra reboot.
