Is possible Install BES on server wtih a dynamic IP Address?

Is possibile install BES 5.0 on server with dynamic IP Address? If no, is there any other version of BES or BPS Express that make it possible?

Re: Is possible Install BES on server wtih a dynamic IP Address?


    It should be possible to do this but I'd probably still recommend using a static IP.  In BES 5.0 you'll have several components that can be installed on other machines and rely on TCP/IP to communicate with each other.  If the DNS cache on one of those other machines had an incorrect IP then you may run into some possibly difficult issues to troubleshoot.  Also if you're intending to use the High Availability features such as BlackBerry Administration Service pools then you'll need to install those components on servers that have static IP's so you can set up DNS round robin (unless you have DNS software that would allow round robin to be performed with hostnames and the clients can perform DNS updates when they get a new IP).
