BES 10 to 10.1 Upgarde - UDS Reactivation

I'm wondering if I upgrade our Blackberry Device Service server to mitigate having to reactivate all of our Blackberry's is going to leave our UDS install in limbo? 

 

I know it mentions in the documentation that all UDS devices will need to be reactivated on the new 10.1 server, but will the currently activated devices will continue to function?  Or will the upgrade automatically break the connection from our IOS / Android devices when we upgrade BDS to 10.1?

 

I just want to know if this is going to be a slow painless process or a quick painful one!  Thanks in advance!

Is your UDS server separate from your BDS server, or are they both running on the same box?

Re: BES 10 to 10.1 Upgarde - UDS Reactivation

According to a RIM tech I spoke to you can upgrade BDS to 10.1 and just leave the UDS server alone and it will be fine. This makes sense because it's a separate server talking to a separate database instance so UDS doesn't know anything about BDS or vice versa.

I didn't try this in my environment, I just built a new 10.1 server from scratch and reactivated everyone since I didn't have a huge number of BDS users (still working on the UDS users though, thanks RIM...)
