Default Move BES4 from 1 server to antoher!

Please Login to Remove!

I currently have BES 4 with MSDE databse on the same server. I have just bought a new more powerful server and need to build, install BES 4 and MSDE and then transfer my 50 users over to it. I am looking to be able to do it with as little disruption as possible and without desktop intervention.
All of my users have been deployed using enterprise activation and none have the desktop software installed so if I mess up it could be a major headache.

any advice/instructions how to move from one server to another would be appreciated...

Install MSDE on the new machine, copy the BESMgmt database files over and attach them to it (theres a microsoft article on it, I can paste it in if you need it), then run the BES4 install on the new machine.
