Yeah it's in the RIM docs. It's not the Windows server name that matters (that can be anything) it's the BES instance name you provide when running the install. If you will use the same DB as the Prod BES you MUST have the BES instance name matching or the SRP ID will be invalid and it will ask for a new one. All that means is that you see the other BES name when you open BM, everything else is cool. Many people knife edge to new hardware then run with the old BES instance name for many years (ahem ahem)
. Just make sure your other admins know that what they are looking at on the DR will be the BES instance name, not neccesarily the Windows hostname.
