Default Upgrade BES from Win 2000 to Win 2003

Please Login to Remove!

I did a handful of searches before posting this, but all I could find was threads on migrating Exchange, not Windows.

Our BES is currently on Windows 2000 and we need to get it upgraded to Windows 2003. The BES is currently 4.0.3.10.

Does anyone have a 'Windows Migration Guide for Blondes' they can share with me? I also checked in the support pages for blackberry.com but their search 'engine' stinks.

Thanks!

Perform your standard backup. Database and such.
Then upgrade the OS. If you will be formating the machine and reinstalling 2003 I would suggest following this KB:

Are you running Exchange 2003 manager on the BES? Exchange 2000 manager isn't supported on Windows 2003.

We're running Exchange 2003 SP1 tools on the BES, so I think we're all set.
