My Knife edge cutover to new hardware
Luckymy decomssioned web server was almost the same server as the BES (different BUS speed)

Day 1:
RTFM

setup win 2k, drivers, static IP, join domain
setup firewall for internet access and port 3101 out
apply local policy for log on and log on as service for BESAdmin and local login as well
upgrade to MDAC 2.8
update M$ update
install IE6 before antivirus
install 70+ windows updates
install Media player 9
install ESM only and exchange sp2

Day 2: 4:38 PM
shut off services on old BES
Install new bes with same instance name and use remote SQL database
install MR3
Reboot
watch all connecting getting new SB's
send test message out with this in subject line
<$confirm,removeondelivery> Test BES 123
4:58 PM first confirmed recieved

Day 3:
Stop services on new BES

Change MDS CS mapping, restart MDS connection service
All is well.

Arrow Is this fun or what?

My new drive arrived today. Time to have fun with SATA RAID.

Take old BES services offline
temp BES online now

on old BES install new drive and RAID card
Setup RAID 1 and clean install WIN 2K, all updates, MDAC, ESM and like 20 reboots to prepare for Knife Edge cutover again.

Stop temp server BES services
Ran BES setup on rebuilt server, applied patch, starting services, confirmed mapping of MDS CS. Looking good.

BES is easier than setting up win2k, LOL
