Adding 2nd bes express server

We have bes express 5.0.2 "live" server up and running for 6 months and would like to add a 2nd bes express server to the enviroment to do some testing for dr.  When building the 2nd server during the setup I'm pointing this new server to the same remote SQL 2008 database.  I'm then prompted "Are you sure you want to upgarde the besmgmt database".  I can't seem to find a definitive answer to whether this will just add new server info to the existing database or it will "upgrade" the database and stop the original database from working?

Re: Adding 2nd bes express server

sounds like you are using a new version of BES and it could break your existing BES if it is not upgraded.
