We would like to put in BES 5.2 running on Windows 2008 SP2 to provide Blackberry services for users running on an Exchange 2003 SP2 server running on Windows 2003 SP2.
Is this a supported configuration by RIM?
Thanks in advance,

I checked the Compatibility matirx, but wanted to know if we can assume, that becuase 5.x is supported on 2008, and 5.x is supported with exchange 2003, which is supported on 2003, that 5.x on 2008 supports Exchange 2003 on Windows 2003.
its more of compnents on 2008 vs components on 2003 question.

It will work, but there are 3 patches that might cause trouble with 2008 unless you goto BES 5 SP3 which does not have the issue.
BAS wont open on 2008 R2
Update for Windows Server 2008 R2 x64 Edition (KB2534366)
I would also use a 64bit OS if possible so you can add RAM later on if need be. BAS is a resource hog.
