Install a 2nd BES - Problems
I have a BES 4.1.5 with 100 users. The database from this BES it is on a SQL SERVER.
In past, my database from this server were on a MSDE, and this MSDE crashed. After this, I migrated my database to a SQL server. After this, my BES was working.
Today, I bought a new license to install a new server. I will install this new server, create another DB in the same DB server, and I need to configure both BES servers to work together.
In this moment, in my enviroment, I have TWO BES running, each one with a different name, different SRP and with different Database.
How I configure these BES servers to work together in the same domain?
My 1st BES has some issues on DB, I need migrate the users on this BES to the 2nd one. I need to do it totally transparent to my users. No down times, no new activations, no wipes.
Is it possible ?
Thanks in advanced
Unfortunately it is not possible to move a device from one BES Domain over to another BES Domain without a wipe and reactivation. You will need to remove your users from the old server, add to the new server, then wipe/reactivate the device. No other way around it.
Is it the only way ?
How I add new BES to a new Domain , with actual configuration ? Is it possible ?
I read on another forum about this matter, and , according another forum, the only way for this is using the same DB for my two servers. But, If I do it, I need Wipe and reconfigure 100 devices, espalhados diffused in All Brasil ... It is a big work...
And I Really need change users from DB, because i have some issues on 1st BES...
I Try all day configure the two BES servers to work together... But, I don't have success on my journey...
If I need use the same DB to all BES, i have a BIG, a BIIIIG problem...
I think it is impossible... If it is a only way, I don't have redundancy on my servers... If the DB Crash, all my BES Servers stop work...

The wipe and reactivation has to occur...I am sorry to say you're SOL on this one :-(
Since you bout another license you should have a free support call.
I would use this to have RIM clean your DB and then run both off the same database. If you backup SQL DB's you should be able to recover quickly.

I will go explain my DB Problem:
When I use MSDE, my DB crash, and I imported the crashed DB to a SQl server.
After this, my MDS doesn't work more.
So, if I don't have a possibility to use my two BES Servers in two DBs , are you can help-me a resolve my MDS problem ?
Why information I can post here to you can help-me ?
