Hello All, I'm trying to clarify the following setup and our mirgration for BES.
Current Setup - Exchange 2003 / BES 5.0 / AD 2003
We are migrating the entire enviornment to a new AD / Exchange 2010 etc.
I would like to know whether I will need to rebuild a new BES 5.0 server in the new AD, or if I can migrate the BES mailbox to the new Exchange server and move the BES server to the new AD?
Solved! Go to Solution.

Multiple AD forests should be ok as long as
1) There is a two way trust between them
2) They are all within the same Exchange organization
if you are making a new Exhcange org, you have to backup device, wipe, restore, activate on new BES
or pay for BNator to move them

Hello Knottyrope, just to follow up on this migration step.
We will be creating a new exchange organisation, so a rebuild of the handhelds will be required.
During the exchange migration we are only going to migrate the mailbox to the new active directory so affectly run an exchange resource forest, the accounts in the new forest will be linked mailboxes.
Eventually we will migrate all the user accounts to the new Forest and decomission the old Forest.
I'm struggeling to find the solution during this transition phase - if I move the mailbox to the new forest the BES server will loose sight of the mailbox (we have a 2 way trust in place). I found an article about installing Bes Express in the new AD but this is very short.
Have you come across a solution to this before?

going to a new exchange org requires a wipe to remove encryption keys from device
backup with desktop manager, wipe, restore and activate on new BES server is what you can do with out bnator
