Updating/migrating to BES 5.x



We are currently at BES running on Win2k3. In the end, we want to be running 5.x on Win2k8.  Is it conceivable to set up the new server and easily migrate users from the old to the new - then delete the old?

Re: Updating/migrating to BES 5.x

Do you have T support? If yes tehn get a migration kit which will give you a second SRP.



Since BES 5.0 is so different, I would set it up all on its own and once tested and running, use transporter to move users over which will not require any activation


Here is most of the documentation you need will to install and administer the BB 5.0 server:


Server 5.0 Upgrade Paths:



Server 5.0 Intsallation Support:




Server 5.0 Upgarde guide:



BlackBerry Enterprise Server Resource Kit Docs and Files





Server 5.0 Admin Tutorial:



All Server guides:



Then when you are done with the above follow this one if going to 2010
