Here's the skinny. The BES is actually directly on the SBS 2003 install with Exchange 2003 SP2. The customer knows this isn't the preferred config, but RIM support at install time said it was fine for this 5 person network. When it is time to upgrade they'll separate the two.
So yes, Exchange 2003 SP2 is on there. I tried writing a quick script and putting it in the startup folder to start the BES service, but couldn't get it to work. I wondered if the BES service was trying to start before Exchange or if the domain hadn't authenticated yet. I don't know how to change when the service starts, i.e. with the dependency deal. Any ideas how to just get the service to start later in the boot process?
