Applying service pack 7 to BES 4.0

Last Modified: 2012-05-09
We are migrating our main company server (PDC) from Windows 2003 with Exchange 2003 to Windows 2008 SBS with Exchange 2007.

The Blackberry Enterprise Server will remain on a separate Windows 2003 server (member server) as it is now.

Since we are using an old BES (4.0) I understand that I must apply service pack 7 so that BES is Exchange 2007 compatible. I also understand that I don't need to apply the service packs 1-6 since each service pack is cumulative.

I cannot find an installation procedure for 4.0 sp7 on the blackberry site. Can someone please advise me if installing the service pack in basically a "click next a few times and you're done" thing, or whether applying the service pack means that users will have to complete enterprise activation again.

The only thing I understand so far is that I must be logged in to the windows server with account BesAdmin when applying the upgrade.

Many thanks
