Move BES mailbox from one Exchange Server to another

Last Modified: 2012-06-27
Hello Everyone.  Here is my situation.  I have two 2003 Exchange Servers in the same domain.  One is a standard version the other an enterprise version.  The standard version has Blackberry Enterprise Server installed and it currently has corporate mailboxes who use BES to receive e-mail.  Due to space restrictions, I want to move user mailboxes from the standard version to the enterprise version and to a different store on the enterprise exchange server.  Can I accomplish this without having Blackberry Enterprise Server installed on the enterprise server?  without affecting their ability to receive e-mails on their Blackberry Curves?  

Basically, without the user being aware that anything has occurred.  I have read other posts that indicate this can be done but they do not fully fit the situation I have.  Any assistance in this matter will be greatly appreciated.  Thank you in advance for your time and assistance.

Thanks guys.  I had most of this information but wanted confirmation of my plan before testing.  SatyaPathak, I did not have that particular forum.  Thanks for passing that on.  Moorelock, Thanks for mentioning AD and the permissions it would carry across....
