I'm not sure what the issue is with the old database. Maybe it's with SQL? Or, maybe with the database?...Either way, if you go with creating a new Database and importing the users, you will have problems with push IT Policy in the future...well issues with other IT Admin commands too because the keys on the handheld and in your DB for IT Policy will not match any longer. You'll have to wipe all handhelds in the future. Yes...installing new and importing users will be very easy to get your users sending and receiving email, calendar and PIM...however, this is not the correct way.
I would suggest to combine two steps mentioned previously. Install with the same BES name with a new Database. After that is complete, don't import/export anything and don't start services. Instead, detach your new database and copy the BESMgmt.mdf and BESMgmt.ldf from the **old SQL to the new SQL and attach those two files. From there open the blackberry manager and check it out. There's your users and it looks familiar? If yes now start services.
As and aside, a Tsupport contract will hook you up with some support for your migration.
