Domain Migration Questions

Our current setup is Exchange 2003 with frontend and back end servers.
That domain is named SOLAR. The BES is installed on the frontend server
named TITAN.

Our goal is to move to two new frontend and backend exchange servers that
are a part of a new domain.

After all of the Exchange and Active Directory accounts and mailboxes are
moved over what is the correct procedure for moving the BES accounts over?

From what I gather the process should go like this:

(This is for after all Active Directory and Exchange Accounts have been
moved over to the new domain.)

1. Log on to the the Exchange server on the old domain and log into the
BlackBerry Manager.
2. Select all of the accounts and export the user data to a text file.
3. Move the file over to the new Exchange server
4. On the new Exchange server on the new domain I will open up the
BlackBerry Manager and right click in the manager, select 'Add Users', then
select 'Import Users from File'

Are these the correct steps or does anyone have any other suggestions?

Do the PIN numbers need to be reissued once the accounts have been added?

I am also using a temporary eval key on the BES server on the NEW domain, can I just copy the PAID key from the server on the OLD domain to the NEW domain with out issue??

Thank you very much for any responses, I truely appreciate your help!!
