Blackberry Express 5.0.2

I currently have a Blackberry Express 5.0.2 installed and configured in my main Site for use with Exchange 2010. I would like to install a 2nd Blackberry Express in my DR Site. Do I install a new configuration database? Can I use the same Exchange 2010 mailbox? Can I use the same licensing information? Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

I read where Express does not allow the standard High Availability option.

According to the feature matrix, the premium IT features including HA is only available in the Enterprise version.

You could install a second BES with another SRP in your DR site:

Providing you have the same SQL database intact, the second BES can be made live in the event of DR.

With regards to the SQL database, you can setup SQL Mirroring to your DR site which will also failover if required. However, this would require SQL Server, not Express edition.
