Default Restore of BES config info

Please Login to Remove!

I hope I explain this right - so here goes.

We had an old BES server for our 5.5 users - now gone, no longer around. We need to restore enough of this server to acquire the license information so we can use this to purchase an upgrade for a new server that we are putting in place. (we don't want to have to purchase a NEW license since this one is still valid according to RIM) How much of the old server do I need to restore and how would I pull this information out of the config to be applied to the new server. Guess it would be the SRP # and what else? Thanks - no sure if I can do this - but the boss said to do it!

Restore the DB to an MSDE instance and connect with SSMS, the licence keys are in it.
