Moving BES server to a new Active Directory environment
I have a Windows 2003 SBS with Exchange and a W2K server running BES 3.6. I am building a new network which consists of a Windows 2003 Server and Exchange 2003 Server (both will be DC's in the new AD). I want to bring my existing W2K server running BES 3.6 into this new environment. I plan on using ExMerge to import mail files to the new Exchange server and then retiring the SBS server. As for bringing the BES 3.6 server into my new environment I planned on doing the following:
1. Using DCPROMO remove it from it's current domain
2. Add it to the new domain as non-DC server
3. Edit the MAPI profile of the BES server to point to the new Exchange server.
Is there any problems you can see with doing it this way? Does BES make "hooks" into it's AD environment that will give me headaches when doing this? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!
