I'm running Exchange 2007 with BES 4.1.7. We're looking to move users off one of our Exchange 2007 servers onto a new one. Most of these users have Blackberry devices.
Normally in situations involving mailbox moves, I reboot all the BES servers. However, I've just come across this article here:
It says that -
i. We only need to restart BES services if moving users between stores on the same server
ii. We don't actually need to restart all services only the Dispatcher and Controller
iii. In relation to the above - is the process to follow
a) Stop Dispatcher, Stop Controller, Start Dispatcher, Start Controller
b) Restart Dispatcher, Restart Controller
iv. Anyone know why only moves involves moves within an Exchange server require a service restart, not those from one box to another?
v. Do we need to restart services if failing over from one node of an Exchange cluster to another?
Any advise appreciated!
