Re: Migrate from SQL to SQL Express

[ Edited ]
Try a Battery pull please, with the BlackBerry device powered ON, remove the battery 15 seconds and then reinsert the battery to reboot device. This will clear all cache like rebooting a PC. Then try again and see if your problem persists.

What OS are you on? On your device, type in a new message MYVER and a space after to see and report back please.

So maybe you should go for SQL 2005 express for now until you migrate over to BES 5, then switch to SQL 2008 express"


I thought that would be assumed with my opening comment that I am migrating to a new server.

Current environment:

Windows Server 2003

SQL 2000

Domino 7.0.2

BES 4.1.7

Standalone BES

300 users


New environment:

Windows Server 2008 R2

SQL 2008 R2 Express

Domino 8.5.2

BES 5.0.3

Standalone BES - New BB domain

300 users


Maybe this should be a new thread, but my next issue is I noticed on the BlackBerry Enterprise Transporter 5.0.3 Supported Environments doc the source database SQL 2000 is not supported.  On this doc the source database only goes back to SQL2005 SP2.  Enterprise Transporter 5.0 supports a source database of SQL 2000, but only a destination database of 2005 SP2.  If in fact I cannot use 5.0.3 Enterprise Transporter, how am I to migrate the users from the old server and domain to the new server and domain?

Upgrade SQL on current BES 4.x to 2005 express with link given above.


yeah I messed up on first post, I human after all
