BES Express 5.0.2 now supports Enterprise Tansporter - you can use this to migrate without re-activation (assuming handsets meet OS requirements):

I have seen this article prety but not the same
They are moving the same configuration to a new box
Log in to the new computer using the BlackBerry Enterprise Server administration account, and then install the BlackBerry Enterprise Server software version that is running on the existing computer. For example, if the existing computer is running BlackBerry Enterprise Server software version 4.1 Service Pack 1, install BlackBerry Enterprise Server software version 4.1 Service Pack 1 on the new computer. For instructions, see the BlackBerry Enterprise Server for Microsoft Exchange: Installation Guide for the appropriate BlackBerry Enterprise Server software version.

But in my kase i need to install compleatly new software and move users in to it, withaout reactivating their devices.
