Default Itchey for BB10 but stuck on SBS 2003

Please Login to Remove!

I've posted before about my situation being SBS 2003 server running BES 4.1.4 bundle 143.

I know that I can't run the new BES 10.x on my old server. But is there a way for me to set up a newer SBS 2008 server to run the new BES software and have it point to the older SBS 2003 exchange store? I'd be willing to do this in order to get our few BB's up to BB10.

In order for me to get my server up to 2008 or higher I'd have to change the hardware and all, a very big job. I have enough hardware to set up a stand alone SBS 2008 to run BES10.

Comments?

So what I've learned today is that it would be possible for me to install a SBS2008R2 server into my environment and run BES 10 pointing back to my SBS 2003/exchange in order to migrate to BB10. Can anyone comment on this? I can probably assemble the hardware to do this. Upgrading the SBS2003 server is a whole different task which involves a lot of other things. Getting to BB10 might be easiest by just adding another server.

Of course this all started when I was recently at a retail outlet and was able to play with a Q10 for a while. I've been a 9810 user for the past few years, and while it's served me well, the newer generation of phones is really something.

You should be able to install a Server 2008R2, add it to the domain and then install the BES10.
However you cannot add a second SBS(any version) to you SBS network due to enforced limitations by Design of the SBS.
Also Exchange has to be upgraded to SP2
