Old BES server blue screened. I have spare server. What's the best way to get it up and running again?

hi guys,

Our old BES server has come up with the blue screen of death and it just won't load or boot even in safe mode. There is a spare server which is similar.

I can take out the disk from the BES server and put it into this one as slave?

The BES version is old (4.1) but I have the software etc. The exchange environment until we transition to the new version, is also old so I can't use BES Express sadly.

If your server died like that, based on what tools I've given here, what is the best/fastest way to get everything up and running again?

Thanks a lot

Install BES 4.1 or BES Express on the new server then follow the steps: http://www.blackberryforums.com.au/forums/general-bes-discussion/10522-help-bes-server-restore-without-backup.html
