You do not need to move the DB, at least in my experience. Both times I have done this have been a SQL DB. When you install BES on new server, it will ask where the DB is, and you point it to its current location. One of the main points of the move is you can't have both BES's active with the same SRP key at the same time. When you're ready to go, stop all Blackberry services on current server, then start up/install BES on new server, input all info, and you should be good to go. If you have current/old server up and new server up with same SRP keys, RIM will lock out your account. The idea behind this is that this would never happen (2 servers with same SRP key) unless someone else is stealing your SRP key and trying to get something for nothing. If you forget and it gets locked out, a call to RIM will get it unlocked. Hope this helps.
