Default BES 4.1.6 SQL Database migration to SQL 2005 Cluster Environment

Please Login to Remove!

Folks - BES 4.1.6 SQL Db to SQL 2005 cluster.

I am told there are particular gotchas when migrating a BES SQL Db for the BES server to a dedicated SQL environment.
I have been advised in no uncertain terms that housing the BES SQL Db on the BES server when there is SQL 2005 cluster available is very bad practice.
Has any one got a document detailing the process of migrating a BES SQL Db from the BES server to the SQL environment?

Default Your SQL Admin should be able to help with this

SQL Admin just copied the MSDE database to the SQL server.
SQL Admin did all the Attach functions.
SQL Admin adjusted the database rights.

Changed the database using Server Configuration.

Manually changed all registry keys on BES.


Turned off MSDE.

Reboot again.
All was well.

Don't forget to run the dbcreate.exe to populate the sysmessages table and scheduled jobs first.

Check the following knowledge base article from RIM, which explains the procedure

"How to move the BlackBerry Configuration Database to a new Microsoft SQL Server or instance"
