    Default User Migration from BES 5 to BES 10

    Hello Everyone,

    I am testing BES 10 in my environment and have 2 BB Z10s. I would like to port the users from my BES 5 to my new Dev BES 10 server.

    How would you go about doing this. I cannot seem to find the migration tool.

    If anyone could help out that would be great.

    Thank you.

    It's my understanding that these 2 services are totally independent. They aren't actually supposed to be on the same server (you can do this via a VM if necessary), which explains the lack of a migration tool.

    You'll probably have to set all your policies and everything from scratch for BES10 unfortunately.

    Ok, so here is a VERY easy way to do it.

    Go into your Mobile Fusion/BES 10 console Window. Create a SECOND device activation for your users. Activate these two users on the Z10. At this point, email/contacts/calendar/etc will be on both units. Go in and delete the BES5/Legacy BBOS users.

    Thanks Sith,

    Looks like that is the only way to possibly "transfer" them.

    That is the great thing with the migration to BES10 right now. Zero downtime. RIM/BB will likely release a tool to move it, or come May-ish, when it is all in one box, itll be seemless.

    Keep in mind that the BDS does not have the same ability to save settings the way BES 5 does. (which folders are synced, profile settings etc) so the transfer tool is somewhat irrelevant.
    I have been doing what S_A has been doing: Activating the new phone on the BDS, and when comfortable with the Z10, removing the BB from the BES 5
