Moving Blackberry Enterprise Server for Exchange to a New Server

We successfully moved the BES SQL database over to the new server, and went through all of the steps of this article: http://www.blackberryforums.com/bes-admin-corner/151067-moving-blackberry-enterprise-server-exchange-new-server.html

One of the steps was backing up and restoring the SQL database. Went through successfully.

Setup everything, without any errors, but for some reason blackberry handhelds were not working.

So we switched back to the old BES. We now want to give it a second shot. Do we need to Backup and Restore the SQL database to the new BES again?

Does the SQL DB hold any transaction logs? I am afraid that if we go for attempt #2, emails have been sent back and forth on the old BES, and maybe new transactions have been written to the old DB. So if we don't backup and restore the old SQL DB on old BES to the new SQL DB on the new BES something will crash.

My question is, do we have to move the DB all over again, if we already did so 24 hours ago?

Hi, if you try the migration again you must perform another backup and restore to ensure you are transfering the most current data.
