Exchange is on a Windows 2008 box. BES is on a Windows 2003 box.
When the Exchange Server reboots for any reason, the BES looses connection the Exchange Server requiring me to reboot the BES, or restart the BB Services on the BES server. Is this by design or is there a way to make the BES re-authenticate and not have to restart it when the connection between the two Servers is broken due to the Exchange Server rebooting?
I find this happens when Microsoft issues an update and reboots my Exchange Server! Any help is appreciated.

Been that way for years. I thought BES 5.0 would have fixed it.
Schedule your updates so BES does it last or write a script to do it.

BES losing connection with Exchange is no different than Exchange's tendency to throw a fit if it loses connection with the GC.
I've goten into the habit of patching and rebooting in that order:
all other DCs
All other servers.
