We currently have BES Express 5 running on a Win 2003 32Bit server using SQL 2005 Express.

I want to move it to a new server. Win Server 2008 R2 64Bit and using a remote Sql 2008 R2 64bit server.

Is this possible? or will I need to reinstall from scratch, recreate and reactivate every user?

No, I don't think a reinstall is necessary.  These are the detailed steps for migrating to a new sql server:

Thanks for that.
I have a question about step 4. Upgrading the Schema DB.
I have run this and get the error msg "Unexpected BES type ExchangeX"

Unfortunately, I am not personally familiar with the BES specifics.  Take a look a this overall, possibly it will help:

Unfortunately that URL just points me back to the 1st URL when it gets to the section on moving DB to new server. Thanks anyway.
If anyone else knows about the error, please jump in. "Unexpected BES type ExchangeX"

I was able to complete the install and copy the DB across.
Last part is to point the devices to the new server.

I assumed that all that was needed to to redirect the firewall rule to the new server, but when looking at the BES admin console, I can see each user still has the old server listed as their associated BES server.
I am assuming there must be 1 last step to finalise the cutover. Anyone?

Ended up simply installing 2nd BES and using transport tool to migrate users across. Worked perfectly.
