We will be migrating from Domino 8.5.1 to Exchange 2010, we currently have BES 5.0.3 with two BES servers (HA) and two Blackberry Routers. We will be running them in co-existence for around 7 - 8 months while we finish the migration.
I am trying to confirm licensing as the Blackberry store in Aus has been useless.
- Will I just need two BES licences for another HA option for Exchange (and can I get away with upgrade ones given we already have BES for Domino)
- Can these new BES for Exchange servers use the existing BES Routers or will I need to install new routers & get another SRP as well?
Any other potential issues people can give me a heads up on would be appreciated

BES SRPs and CALs are carrier AND platform agnostic (does knot care)
you only need one SRP for a HA pair.
you can get a migration kit if on T support which will allow you to use old SRP for 90 days and you get a new SRP whcih stays permanant. Talk with your RIM rep, they might be able to extend the time in some cases.
I am not sure about the Routers, might be best just to go with new ones seup up correctly.
you might want to look at b nator, they can help with migration with out wiping each device. It is not free though.
