- Blackberry server fails due to a hard disk crash
- Blackberry server itself was a virtual machine and is backed up weekly
- Server is rebuilt successfully and the virtual machine is restored from backup

Assuming that there aren't any issues with the virtual machine backup and the OS and Blackberry services all started without issue, can it simply be powered on and will continue to work as it was before?

I'm wondering if there would be any issues with handsets because they were communicating with the Blackberry with the database which was more recent than the backup.

Would the handsets simply work as before or would they need to be re-activated? Would there be any other issues like duplicating emails etc?
