The knife-edge cutover should work as long as you plan it out, understand the process and follow the setup instructions to a tee. Most times something is missed during the setup process.
If this is BES 4.1.x move the database first, then install the BES without starting services. As long as you can see everything on the new BES and it looks the same then stop the services on the old BES and start them on the new BES. It will seem like the BES was restarted to the users, very little impact.
Feel free to ask any questions that will make this process easier for you.
