Random thoughts from an unusual company

Nasty Nasty BES MP5 Bug

Thanks to Phil Dawson in Perth who put me onto this unpleasant bug from RIM for 4.1.6 Maintenance Release 5 which was new out at the end of April.  Basically if you attempt to move users from one BES to another with MR5 installed it may or may not work (with 10 people tested, 5 worked, 5 stopped working until they were moved back).  The servers in this case were 4.1.6 servers but the same applies to 5.0 servers.

RIM have acknowledged the problem which is Domino only and is planned for fix in MR6 later this year! (but there's a private hotfix you should be able to get hold of now)

"SDR 314322 In BlackBerry Enterprise Server version 4.1 SP5, if you upgrade some BlackBerry Enterprise Server instances to BlackBerry Enterprise Server version 5.0, you cannot move user accounts from BlackBerry Enterprise Server version 5.0 to BlackBerry Enterprise Server version 4.1 SP6 MR5"
