Default Re: Bes express migration - moving users

Yes, we're keeping the same database server and it's remote to both servers, it's purely an admin server migration. It was originally on the BES server but we migrated that long ago in case that's relevant.

I've installed BES express on the target server. It's connected to the database fine and appears in BAS as a new server. I can use the 'switch user to different BES' option and it works fine but the old emails disappear, when I switch back they reappear but any emails retrieved while on the other server are then gone.

I had a look at the transporter but it seems geared to transferring to entirely new environments?

I'm thinking there's something about the structure of how BES caches emails I'm not understanding...?
