How to determine Blackberry Server version

I am not sure if we have the Enterprise or Small Business version of the Blackberry Server.  It was installed a year ago and it only has 2 users.

Add/Remove Programs reports:  Blackberry Enterprise Server for Microsoft Exchange v 4.1.6 (Bundle 30)

Blackberry Manager reports: BlackBerry Enterprise Server Version:  4.1.6.10

When I look at the License Management app it shows my 2 licenses as the License Type: Small Business Edition

The Small Business Edition is limited to 15 users and I will need more than that so I want to make sure that is what I have before trying to upgrade to Pro.

Small Business and Enterprise use the exact same software; the only difference is the license keys. If you were to purchase a Enterprise license, you should be able to put it in and remove the Small Business license with little issue.

As far as I remember BES is being sold with at least 20 licenses. If you can seen only 2 licenses registered on your server it probably means that SBE was purchased.  

No problem to upgrade from SBE to Professional Expess http://na.blackberry.com/eng/services/server/offers/professional_express.js
The licenses are the same for SBE and Pro.

That is what I thought -- so I bought another SBE license andd added it to verify and all is OK.  I'll upgrade it to Pro now. Thanks...
