  • BESX 5.0.2.29 and Exchange 2010

    Hello. I need some recommendation what needs to be done with the existing BESX 5.0.2.29 server which is installed on windows 2003 R2 Sp2. I am planning to migrate exchange server 2003 which is currently installed on windows server 2003 Sp2 to new box with 2008 r2 64 bit and exchange 2010 with new server name and IP address. I need to know what need to be done on BESX server. Do I have to reinstall everything or is there some modifications can be done to avoid complete reinstallation.


    Thank you very much in advance

      Yes BESX on it's own server. I think I did say that BESX on its own server.
      Could you please provide me with any migration documents if you have it?

      Thank you

          Install BESX SP3, plus the latest rollups.
          Disable the BES Services.
          Remove ESM and reboot.
          Install MAPI CDO.
          Enabled BES Services.
          Move the BESADMIN account to Exchange 2010.
          Use the BES config tool to ensure the change has been made.
          Reboot.

          That is it.

          Completely ignoring changes you have to make to Exchange 2010.

          Simon.

            Thank you very much for your help.
            Do I have to upgrade to the latest maintenance release of version 5.02 and Security Updates prior to the installation of BESX SP3?
            Also I do not have ESM installed, I have Mapi CDO installed, version 1.2.1.
            Do I need first to uninstall the old version and install latest version of CDO?

              As far as I am aware, the service packs are cumulative, so you just install the latest service pack, then any post service pack updates.
              What I have done in more than one occasion is simply downloaded the complete installation using the link in the original licence email and install on top, which does an upgrade.

              With regards to MAPI CDO, you should try and keep that up to date, so I would remove and install the latest version. They have been through a number of revisions, particularly to resolve performance issues with the combination of Exchange 2010 and BES 5.x
