    Hello experts,

    as part of working on a Server Virtualization project for a new customer, we have recently took over administration of an old physical server running Microsoft Windows Server 2003 R2 Standard Edition and the following (painful because on a single server) combination of platforms/services:

    ==================================================
    1) Microsoft Active Directory Domain Services (this server is currently holding all 5 FSMO roles)
    2) Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 Standard Edition
    3) BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express 5.0.3 (Bundle 12)
    ==================================================

    Our primary goal is to get rid of the old hardware and to migrate the said platforms/services into the following set of new Virtual Machines running on a new VMware vSphere cluster:

    ==================================================
    1) a new VM running Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 or Windows Server 2012 for Microsoft Active Directory Domain Services (this new VM will hold all 5 FSMO roles)
    2) a new VM running Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 for Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 Standard Edition SP3
    3) a new VM running Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 for BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express 5.0 SP4
    ==================================================

    I have already performed Microsoft Active Directory Domain Services and Microsoft Exchange Server Migrations in the past and I have a very clear understanding of the steps necessary to migrate the said platforms/services from A to Z, however I don’t have any knowledge about BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express installation/administration/migration.

    Can someone please provide guidance on the high level steps necessary to carry out the BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express migration along with the Microsoft Exchange Server Migration ? More specifically, I really don’t have a clue when to start the BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express migration during the Microsoft Exchange Server Migration.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks and Regards,

    Massimiliano
