Migrated to new Exchange 2007 Server, Blackberry Pro 4.1 server migration needed too?

I have a Blackberry Pro Server 4.1 that is running on a stand alone unit. The server communicated with server 3 since its installation into the network. I have migrated to server7 now with Exchange 2007, essentially the migration was only a move between Exchange 2007 servers.

I am wondering if there is anything I need to do to tell the BES server to look at server7 now instead of server3 which was also a Exchange 2007 server.

yeah all you need to do is re-run the mapi profile setup and make sure it's connecting to the new server

should be on the start menu under blackberry stuff
Once you have moved the besadmin/service account mailbox you need to stop BES services (stop all then controller, dispatcher & router in that order) and re-do MAPI. Launch the BlackBerry Server config (start > programs > blackberry enterprise server) > blackberry server > edit MAPI profile. Point this to the new Ex2007 server where the mbox has been moved. Once that's done launch the edit MPI profile (start > programs > blackberry enterprise server > edit MAPI profile) and re-do that one as well. Once done, start BES services (router, dispatcher, controller then rest in that order) then wait 15-45min for mailflow to work depending on your organization size as it will have to rescan all the mboxes.

I also had to go back into the Command Shell on the new server and I had to run get-mailboxserver NT07 | add-adpermission -user BESAdmin -accessrights GenericRead, GenericWrite -extendedrights Send-As, Receive-As, ms-Exch-Store-Admin. The Blackberry support rep had me running that from the Bes server's shell.
