Hi Guys,

This is my guess/understanding of the order of tasks for the migration:

Obtain a SRP Key from RIM for a 90 day period (this is to input onto the new BES Servers)
On BES 5.0 Server (setup.exe):
Install all the BES components (administration, router, attachment, dispatcher, etc)
Create new Blackberry Configuration Database and Select SQL Server 2008
Input the Standby SQL Serverxxx8217;s details (SQL Server name and DB name)
Input the new xxx8216;Temxxx8217; SRP Key
Input details of the Exchange 2010 Mailbox Server
Install and Configure the Transporter Tool on the BES 5.0 Server
Install the Standby BES 5.0 Server
Click Set up: use an existing BES configuration database
Install a Standby BES to set up HA' option
Select the Primary BES server that you want to assign this standby to
Migrate an Exchange 2003 mailbox account to Exchange 2010
Run the Transporter Tool for that User mailbox xxx8211; Source to Target

This way there are two BES domains (both domainxxx8217;s BES servers and SQL DBxxx8217;s are working). At the end when all mailboxes are migrated, the services on BES 4.1 can be switched off and the Temp 90 day SRP can be replaced with the original SRP key from the BES 4.1 Server.

Could some one please clarify if we are on the right tracks please??
