Migration of BPS & EXG2007

[ Edited ]

I am testing the migration of BPS to a stand alone server for a prerequisite of our Exchange 2007 upgrade.

 

My question is, should I perform the migration of BPS before, or after the Exchange 2007 install?

In my mind, it would make more sense to perform the migration after EXG2007 is in place, but I thought I would seek an opinion from the professionals.

 

- 3 Users on BPS

- BPS is currently installed on Exchange 2003

- We are migrating to Exchange 2007

- Going to install Exchange 2007 on its own server, and install BPS on our server that already owns the BPS SQL instance. 

 

Let me know your thoughts.  Thanks. 

 

John

I'd move BPS first.

 

This way you can keep MAPI / CDO versions consistent across upgrade paths.

Ok, I gotcha.  When I do the migration, I need to install the MAPI and CDO Objects 1.2.1, is that correct?

Also, the documentation I have tells me to install the Exchange system manager for 2003 on the new BPS server.  Is this valid, or should I be installing the Exchange 2007 32BIT tools on to my stand alone? 

 

The actual BPS install process is easy because I am putting it on the server that holds the Blackberry database.  I am just trying to get all my ducks in a row. 

 

Thanks for the quick reply.

CDO 1.2.1 will work for 2003, it is backwards compatible.

 

You do not need ESM 2003 when CDO 1.2.1 is used.

Re: Migration of BPS & EXG2007

Honestly, either / or is fully supported per http://na.blackberry.com/eng/support/software/professional_exchange_ver_january09.pdf

 

I'd stick with MAPI / CDO 1.2.1

 

Be aware though; the current version listed http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=E17E7F31-079A-43A9-BFF2-0A110307611E&displa... is not in the support matrix.  Just an FYI.  Will it most likely work perfectly fine; yes.
