BES 10

Hi,
      currently I am running BES version Version: 5.0.4.27 , need to upgrade it to BES 10 as we have purchased some Q10 AND Z10 BB Devices . regarding this I have some queries :-
1) As BES does not support BB Devices other then Z10 &Q10 , so how I manage to support other BB devices of users like Bold , curve etc. ?
2) what are the prerequisites of BES 10 ? Currently I am running BES version Version: 5.0.4.27 on MS Windows server 2003 R2 , CAN I INSTALL BES  10 ON SAME SERVER ?

Please advice

I am running both. With version 10.0, it had to run on a separate server. Also, the router service has been split off an must be installed on a separate server as well. This was done in order to add security in the event a company wanted to place it in the DMZ. There is a KB that shows a way to configure it to use the BES 5.0 server as the router, but since that may eventually be shut down I chose not to do it. There is a management interface where you can manage both BDS 10 and BES 5 devices. From my understanding, 10.1 can co-exist on a BES 5 server, however you are out of luck in that BDS 10 minimum OS is Windows 2008 x64. If it is no R2, then it must at least be up to SP2. Here are the requirements. Operating system is on page 14.

Since the Q10 and Z10 devices support Exchange ActiveSync, I wouldn't bother with BES 10 if you can get away without it.

Why would you avoid using BES? The point is to have the granular control and the secure network to transmit data on. That is the reason many companies and governments organizations still use it.

There is no co-existance options that are supported by Blackberry. You must have seperate servers. You an use the Universal Device Console to manage both servers from the same interface, but that is all.

Just keep you actual BES 5 and install the latest BES 10.1. Then you can add your old BES 5 to Blackberry Management Studio.

Using Blackberry Management Studio you can create users on both server and you have a general view of all users.

Like Simon already mentioned you have to have two separate server (BES 5 and BES10).

rbarnhardt: You get granular control and a secure link using Exchange ActiveSync too.  That way you don't have to babysit a whiny, needy java based BES install.

You cannot control apps or deploy apps with ActiveSync. You also cannot prevent users from sending corporate emails to their personal email accounts with ActiveSync. All of that requires a separate app like MaaS 360, Good, etc. Which we are using for the few IOS devices we have in house. Plus, Blackberry has an entirely separate network that the data is sent from the server to the devices. Thing like this are important to many companies.
