KB10278 - How to perform a knife-edge cutover for BES 4.x


Environment

  • BlackBerry® Enterprise Server versions 4.0 and 4.1 for Microsoft® Exchange
  • Microsoft® SQL Server® 2005 and 2000
  • Microsoft® SQL Server® 2005 Express
  • Microsoft SQL Server Desktop Engine (MSDE)



Overview

Note: To perform a knife-edge cutover of BlackBerry Enterprise Server version 5.0, see the "Upgrading the BlackBerry Enterprise Server using the cutover upgrade process and upgrade the existing BlackBerry Configuration Database" or the "Upgrading the BlackBerry Enterprise Server using the cutover upgrade process and create a BlackBerry Configuration Database" section of the BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0 for Microsoft Exchange: Upgrade Guide.
To perform a knife-edge cutover of the BlackBerry Enterprise Server 4.0 or 4.1 to another computer, complete the following tasks:
  1. Record the appropriate BlackBerry Enterprise Server information.
  2. Set the local permissions on the new BlackBerry Enterprise Server computer.
  3. Move the BlackBerry Configuration Database to the new BlackBerry Enterprise Server.
  4. Stop the BlackBerry services on the existing BlackBerry Enterprise Server computer.
  5. Ensure that the prerequisites are met.
  6. Install the BlackBerry Enterprise Server software on the new computer.

Task 1

Record the appropriate BlackBerry Enterprise Server information.
  1. Open BlackBerry Manager.
  2. Record the name of the BlackBerry Enterprise Server that is being moved, and then close BlackBerry Manager.
  3. In the Windows® Control Panel, go to Administrative Tools > Services.
  4. Right-click BlackBerry Dispatcher, and then click Properties.
  5. Record the user name that is specified in the This account field on the Log On tab.
  6. Close the Control Panel.

Task 2

Set the local permissions on the new BlackBerry Enterprise Server computer. For instructions, see KB02276.

Task 3

Move the BlackBerry Configuration Database to the new BlackBerry Enterprise Server.
Note: If you are running a remote Microsoft SQL Server and you want to continue using it, skip this step. If you are running a local installation of MSDE, download and install MSDE 2000a from the Microsoft Download Center before proceeding with the back up and restore procedure.
Back up the BlackBerry Configuration Database, and then restore it on the new BlackBerry Enterprise Server. For instructions, see KB03112.

Task 4

Stop the BlackBerry Enterprise Server services on the existing BlackBerry Enterprise Server.
  1. On the existing BlackBerry Enterprise Server, in the Control Panel, go to Administrative Tools > Services.
  2. Right-click each BlackBerry Enterprise Server service, and then click Stop.
  3. Once the services are stopped, right-click each service again and set the Startup type to Manual or Disabled. If the original BlackBerry Enterprise Server restarts and the services are still set to Automatic, the Server Routing Protocol (SRP) Authentication Key and SRP Identifier (ID) may be disabled on the new BlackBerry Enterprise Server.
  4. Close the Services window and the Control Panel.

Task 5

Verify that you have the met the prerequisites for installing the BlackBerry Enterprise Server software. For information, see the BlackBerry Enterprise Server for Microsoft Exchange: Installation Guide for the appropriate BlackBerry Enterprise Server software version.

Task 6

Install the BlackBerry Enterprise Server software on the new computer.
Log in to the new computer using the BlackBerry Enterprise Server administration account, and then install the BlackBerry Enterprise Server software version that is running on the existing computer. For example, if the existing computer is running BlackBerry Enterprise Server software version 4.1 SP1, install BlackBerry Enterprise Server software version 4.1 SP1 on the new computer. For instructions, see the BlackBerry Enterprise Server for Microsoft Exchange: Installation Guide for the appropriate BlackBerry Enterprise Server software version.
Note: During the installation procedure, make sure to remember the following points:
  • When prompted for a BlackBerry Enterprise Server name, use the same name as the existing BlackBerry Enterprise Server name. This information was recorded in Task 1.
  • If the BlackBerry Configuration Database has been moved (as in Task 2), use the path to the new Microsoft SQL Server as the location of the BlackBerry Configuration Database. If a local installation of MSDE is used on the new BlackBerry Enterprise Server computer, select Local.
  • Do not start the BlackBerry Enterprise Server services for the new BlackBerry Enterprise Server until they are stopped on the existing BlackBerry Enterprise Server computer. Important: Restarting certain BlackBerry Enterprise Server services will delay email message delivery to BlackBerry smartphones. For more information, see KB04789.



Additional Information

When using BlackBerry® Mobile Data System (BlackBerry MDS) Services, you must create a new mdss and mdss_dis database. A knife-edge cutover of the BlackBerry MDS Services is not supported.
Note: MDSS is supported only if the BlackBerry Enterprise Server name is not changed.

If the existing BlackBerry Enterprise Server is removed from the environment, make sure that all software configuration files that are stored on it are moved to either the new BlackBerry Enterprise Server, or to a different location in the environment. Software configuration settings should be modified accordingly.
