| | Using BET to move BESX 4.1.4 to BESX 5.0.3

Doing an SBS 2003 to SBS 2011 migration and I'm working on moving BESX. I have downloaded and installed BET on the new server. When I try to configure the source database I get an error that BET could not open a connection to the source database. I am just using the built in SQL Express on both machines. Both machines are on the same AD domain
I think I need to allow remote connections for the source, but I'm not sure how. I'm also not 100% sure I am using the right database names. I see a service called "SQLAgent$BESMGMT" on the source server and "SQL Server (BLACKBERRY)" on the destination server.
When I put the SQL server as SOURCESERVER\BESMGMT and the database as BESMGMT using NT authentication for the besadmin user I get an error
A network-related or instance-specific error occurred while establishing a connection to SQL server. The server was not found or was not accessible. Verify that the instance name is correct and that the SQL Server us configured to allow remote connections. (provider:named pipes provider, error:40-Could not open a connection to SQL server)
When I put the SQL server as DESTINATIONSERVER\BLACKBERRY and the database as BLACKBERRY using NT authentication for my besadmin user I get a login failed. I get the same thing for the domain admin and SQL authentication using the sa account.
What am I missing?
