Installing BES 4.1. But I think I need to install Exchange system manager?

hi guys,

I'm having to rebuild an old BES server. Available to me is only a windows 2008 standard server. I began installing BES 4.1, but as I neared the end, some error regarding the MAPI comes up. Apparently I have to install the Exchange System Manager on this server?

However, the entire environment is on a MS Exchange 2000. Can I install the Exchange 2003 system manager on this BES and for it to work? Or will I have to install the Exchange 2000 system manager?

Any ideas would be great.

Thanks
Yashy

You can use ESM from Exchange 2003 if that is available. ESM is just providing the MAPI connection.

Or you can just install the MAPI Client.

Thank you both.

You mean the MAPI client will work? Remember the environment is a Exchange 2000.

Not sure the MAPI CDO compoent will work with that version of BES. It would work with BES 5 (which you can get on a free upgrade at the moment).

It didn't work:(. I think I need to install the actual System Manager.

Okay, question: I need to download Exchange 2003 now. Can I download Exchange 2003 SP2 and for it to work? Or will I need the version prior to SP2?

Did you reboot after installation of CDO?  When I get back I'll see if I can find my old bes 4 documentation but I think we just used the mapi client.  Been a few years though.  Here's a RIM doc on mapi for bes 4.1.

Thanks man. I'm going to post something new, as we had a massive problem just now because of the MAPI installation.
