Default Adding BES 10 to a BES 5.0.4 Environment (Configuration DB)

Please Login to Remove!

I have BES 5.0.4 installed and running the latest patches. No issues at all.

On a separate W2K8 R2 server, I've installed BES 10 (Blackberry Device Service/BDS) and the Studio.

Both BES 10 and BES 5.0.4 are installed on VMware, so I can quickly go back to where I was.

My only question is - when installing BDS, do I want to use the existing Configuration Database of BES 5.0.4 on the BES 10 - or do I want to create a brand new Configuration Database on the BES 10?

I'm confused a bit, and this is the only part that I can't deceiver via the documentation.

When I created a new Configuration Database my existing BlackBerries (like Bold 9900) stopped sending and receiving. Its like the new BES 10 conflicted with BES 5.0.4. So I stopped (powered down) the BES 10 and reverted BES 5.0.4 back to the way it was before I started. Everything is back to normal. I want to give this another go today, but I'm confused on this Configuration Database. I'm thinking that is how BES 5.0.4. and BES 10 talk to each other.
