Migration of Users from BES 5.0.3 to BES Express?

Hi All,


I am currently trying to convince my boss ofupgrading to a BES 5.0.3 from 4.1 and I am also running a BES Express at an overseas location. Once I upgrade to the 5.0.3 is there going to be any issue migrating users from one location to the other without having to wipe and re-sync a device upon arrival overseas?  That is what I am currently doing with the 4.1 software installed and it is a pain in the **bleep**. I am hoping to convince the boss to speed up the upgrade if the migration capability is a possibility.


Any help with be greatly appriciated.

Are both BES in the same exchange org? If yes then you can use Transporter from teh BRK to move users over to BES 5 express
