Hello

I need to move about 20 older BB from an in house BES 5 server to a hosted system

so there is no moving the Database.

If remember correctly I must wipe the devices to get them released from the old BES server before activating on the new one?


I also remember that just deleting the desktop service books was not enough?

any input would be appreciated

It depends on how it is hosted. If it is Blackberry itself, you need to add the users on the hosted BES server first and set a new activation password. It is not really necessary to wipe the device ahead of time. If there is a problem, you can just do a selective wipe and delete only the work data per the KB below:
