We currently run Blackberry Pro 4.1 on a Windows 2003 Server.  This connects to an Exchange server (2007) running on windows 2008 R2 Server.

I would like to install BESX on another 2008 server and gradually move over uses over to this from Blackberry Pro.    

Are there any issues with this?  Or any advice I should be aware of before I start?  Can both Blackberry system run side by side will users are moved?  

I understand that users will need to be deactivated and reactivated on BESX as users cannot be migrated direct.

Thanks for that.

Any issues running both Blackberry systems (on different servers with different databases) but in the same domain connecting to the same Exchange 2007?

You can only activate one BES account at one time so it will be dependant on which server you set the activation key from?
