Relocate BES server to new office
Posted on 2007-10-18
We are using BES Server Enterprise 4.0 and Exchange 2003 Enterprise. The BES server and the Exchange server are in two seperate offices (different subnets). As we've been getting more and larger mailboxes, the delivery to the BlackBerry's has been getting slower. In the event log on the BES server there are numberous warmings and errors having to do with syncronization issues and droped packets. So, I was going to move the BES server to the same office (same subnet) as the Exchange server in hopes that it may speed up the delivery (or at least the event log will stop getting the warnings and errors).
In preparation to do this, I attempted to check that I could simply change the IP, subnet, DG, DNS, ... and have it work properly after the move. I can find no documentation that it is this easy (or info on how to do this if it is not) on the BlackBerry web site or google.
Is this the propery way to move the BES server between offices?
If not, can you tell me how or point me in the right dirrection?
