Upgrading BES 4.1 from SQL 2000 to SQL 2005


I am in the middle of wanting to upgrade to SQL 2005 on one of my servers. My question is: Does anyone know the step process of upgrading from SQL 2000 to SQL 2005 in relation to BlackBerry Enterprise Server 4.1.

I think that all you need to  do is export ( backup the BES user data) , reconfigure the BES server to point to the new SQL server and import the data.
I would also check the Rim support site for  more explcit info regarding this.

I hope this helps !

The BES database is compatible with SQL2000 or SQL 2005 so no changes have to made to it.  To clarify are you upgrading the SQL 2000 server to 2005 or are you moving from 2000 to 2005?

If you are upgrading the server just stop the BlackBerry services, do a backup of the databases, follow a guide like this one: http://www.microsoft.com/technet/prodtechnol/sql/2005/sqlupgrd.mspx, then once upgraded start the BB services.
