upgrades

You can upgrade any version of the BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express to a later version without having to uninstall the current version.

BlackBerry Domain

Your organization's BlackBerry Domain can contain more than one BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express instance. The different BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express instances in the BlackBerry Domain can be different versions, but the BlackBerry Configuration Database must be the same version as the latest BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express instance. The version of the BlackBerry Administration Service that you use to manage the BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express instances must be the same version as the BlackBerry Configuration Database.

For example, if your organization's BlackBerry Domain contains a BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express 5.0 SP1 and a BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express 5.0 SP2, the BlackBerry Configuration Database must be version 5.0 SP2, and the BlackBerry Administration Service that you use to manage both BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express instances must be version 5.0 SP2.
