Thanks for the reply.
But the server that BES is currently on isn't going to be renamed. I need to be able to move BES to a new server with a new name and then decommission the old BES on the old server. Is there a way to do this?
I suppose I could look into changing the old server name to something else but I would rather not do that as there is a bunch of other things configured for that server already.
SQL 2005 was just my preference is all. It doesn't have to be that.
