BES 5 & 10 together


I have a client that currently has BES 5 installed on a SBS 2011 server. They are wanting to migrate to BES 10. Can both versions be installed on the same server side by side during the migration?

I would think that this cannot be done, but am just wanting it confirmed.

Hi Peter,


Taken from http://docs.blackberry.com/en/admin/deliverables/48992/BlackBerry_Device_Service_6.2_Installation_an...


You must install the BlackBerry Device Service on a computer that does not already host a BlackBerry Enterprise Server instance or BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express instance.


Hope this helps

Re: BES 5 & 10 together

hopefully you can spin up a VM on the SBS server to install BES 10

Re: BES 5 & 10 together

Thanks for the reply. It is as I suspected, but it was good to have it confirmed.
