Hey there, we are migrating server boxes from sbs 2008 to sbs 2011.  The sbs2008 has Blackberry server installed (the free 25 client one).  We are doing a same domain migration with the servers and exchange...can we migrate the Blackberry also without losing service to the employees with Blackberry devices?

If so, how?

Thanks

Hi bcameron70,

This is actually fairly straightfoward if we can make a few assumptions: You will be running the 2008 and 2011 services side-by-side and will be (as you've stated) on the same domain. The two BES servers will also be running simultaneously.

Download and install BES Express from www.blackberry.com/go/express complete with a new SRP ID. This is a free download and gives you unlimited free user licenses. Also, download the BlackBerry Transporter tool from https://swdownloads.blackberry.com/Downloads/entry.do?code=D736BB10D83A904AEFC1D6CE93DC54B8 Select Service Pack 3 from the drop-down. The Transporter tool should be the second download.

Install BES on the new server and verify that it is working. Be careful of the software firewalls on SBS which may prevent communication between the servers. Install the Transporter tool on either the new or the old server. The Transporter tool will allow you to perform on-the-fly migrations of active BlackBerry users without needing to recall, wipe and reactivate the handsets.


Hope this helps,

Mike
