Re: BES/SBE/BPS 4.x upgrade options to BES Express 5.0

Did a new VM for BESX 5.1.2, under MAPI settings its not recognizing Exchange server.


Current Environment:

 BES 4.1.4 is running fine on Exchange 2007, we will be going to exchange 2010 and its only compatible with BesExpress 5.1.2.


BES Mailbox currently resides on exchange 2007, when i point the MAPI to Exchange 2010 server and put the mailbox name. It gives me an error.  "the setup application could not find a mailbox that is named BES"



Does anybody know what the issue is? is there a utility to check mapi profile from server?
