    Question Setting up a new BES, need to migrate existing users from old BES, Help!?


    Hi All,

    I am currently running BES 4.0 in this office. I need to setup a new clean installation of BES 4.1.6 on newer hardware. I will NOT be performing an in place upgrade from 4.0 to 4.1.6.

    My question is this: How can I have both systems up and running at the same time so that I can migrate my existing users over from the old BES onto the new BES? I do not want to have to buy another BES license. This will all be done in a matter of days, so I do not need to purchase another license.

    This is all for BES Enterprise on Exchange 2003.

    Any and all input is greatly appreciated.

    If you have 20 users you can download a trial of BES and change SRP after moving.

    With more than 20, you will need to buy the migration kit or bite the bullet and re EA everyone with possible wipe of devices.

    I would return it and get BES 5.0 and you can seemlessly move users with transporter.
