SQL Database Move Question (Blackberry Server)

I am about to move my Blackberry SQL database onto my new SQL Server.

I am following the folowing link documentation.

LINK HERE

I have two questions.

1- Task 1 - Back up the BlackBerry Configuration Database
    What does the following command do?
    osql -E -S <SQL_Server_name>\<instance_name>

2- Task 2 - Prepare the new Microsoft SQL Server
    Step 4 - Update the BlackBerry Configuration Database schema.

    Important: If the BlackBerry Enterprise Server software was installed to create a blank BlackBerry Configuration Database on a new Microsoft SQL Server instance, do not perform the following task, because the schema has already been updated.

I built a new Blackberry Server a few months ago.   I did this using a new SQL database.  
Do I need to do this?

Thanks for your help.

OK I have already taken a backup of the Database, I intend to detatch it and then move it and re atatch it.  

So what would be the reason I perform this command?
not sure why this is written like this in the "move" script, as the "move" implicitly moves a fully working database...
So I can just add the BESadmin Username to the new SQl Server Login
Detach
Move (I am also moving the two files but I want the log files in a different location to the database)
Reattach?
yes, that should do it (for the database move as such).
I am getting the following error when running the BlackBerry Setup

I have detached moved and Attached the SQL Database and the Logs.

Any ideas?
great ... instead of also giving the actual error message to troubleshoot the connection issue, that setup only gives some "hint" that there is an error ... :(
any "setup log file" with more details?
