I am upgrading from Exchange standard edition to enterprise and found the following from Microsoft about how easy it is to upgrade.

"run the Setup program from the Exchange Server Enterprise Edition compact disc and click the Reinstall button."

the only problem with this is when I put the Exchange Server Enterprise Edition compact disc in my exchange server, and run the setup program,  I can't find this reinstall button. Is it hidden somewhere?

Also, I have Blackberry enterprise server running on my exchange server, does this upgrade affect the blackberry server?

You need to select Custom seetings while reinstalling Exchange, I suppose you are going with typical settings.

this is embarrassing, I had the wrong cd. I put in the correct cd, and imagine that, i found the upgrade button. Maybe i could be more stupid if i really tried hard. Anyhow, the other question remains, is there a problem upgrading to enterprise edition with Blackberry server?

Can’t get the mobile email signature right?

Not having any luck when trying to create an email signature for mobile devices? Does the formatting keep messing up? Make sure you have great email signatures on all devices by using Exclaimer Cloud - Signatures for Office 365.

I don't think there would be any issue still you need to restart Blackberry services/server after the update of exchange.

My best bet on working with blackberry server and Exchange - if it is running in good state why bother it.

You should not bother any sleeping croc just to see it smile :)

I like the "if it's not broke don't fix it" philosophy also, however, I have to go to the Enterprise edition because I'm approaching the size limit for my mail store. ( and that's after doing the little trick to get standard edition to 75gb )

hahaha

Also with regards to enterprise edition - once your on it - please divide the mailboxes across multiple stores. Do remember using Ent Edition the biggest advantage is to be able to use upto 19 stores and unlimited (8TB) of database.

Normally, administrators don't look upon this - but remember the smaller the database the faster the restore - the lesser the amount of downtime.

Also, I have Blackberry enterprise server running on my exchange server, does this upgrade affect the blackberry server?

That should not be affected.
