It is *always* better to do a fresh, clean installation of anything. VMware's recommendation for VMs is to always create a new one. Now, that being said, it's not always feasible, but if you have the time to do so, my recommendation is a fresh install.

BES 5.0 requires a new key so you can enable high availability.


Thank you, that helped :)
I went with a fresh installation and found out that BES has their own migration kit for users, still waiting on that to arrive and start migrating users.
