Iam not sure, but since the knife-edge process uses the same Virtual BES name + SRP's etc as the live server, it will have the users servers mapped to the production exchange server.
Now if you exchange didnt die then it would work as the exchaneg server name isthe same, but since exchange failed as well, then I would say that in order for BES to know that the exchange server name has changed it would need to change the exchaneg server name.
I havent tried it but Iam guessing as I just have a DR setup using the knife-edge process. I would look at the possibly exporting the user list from prod server, modifying and changing the servername to failover exchange and reinmporting and then starting bes.
