You would have to run the two systems on separate servers and administer them from separate interfaces, but I don't see why this wouldn't work, so long as you don't try and enable an account for BES on both systems. BES doesn't make any changes to Exchange, it just reads data from Exchange and communicates this to the blackberry devices (maybe a little ...

In the inbox, click the blackberry button and select options. Then select General options. Then scroll down to "SMS and Email Inboxes" and set it to seperate. This will split the Email from SMS. Missed calls will go to the email inbox though. To stop that go to the call log and click the BB button again and select options. Then go to Call Logging and set ...

4 Days working on this, anyone still stuck check out this solution: If you loaded the SQLEXPRESS open SQL Server Configuration Manager for sqlexpress, click on protocols for blackberry, open tcpip, click the TCP/IP properties tab. Check the IP address for each and every network connection, enable or not, check the IP Address field, should point to your ...

With the new 5.0 version of it and BlackBerry's with 5.0 software it really becomes a very tight tie to the user's mailbox. Here is a list of all the features of the 5.0 server http://na.blackberry.com/eng/services/server/5/compare.jsp If your company is one that likes to lock stuff down, you'll be able to do a much better job of that with the BB's. If you ...

ActiveSync has proven itself to be very reliable for my Customers. Microsoft is licensing ActiveSync to Apple and Google, so you'll find it in iPhone and Android devices, as well as on Windows Mobile device. Blackberry Enterprise Server (at least 4.5-- I haven't used 5.0) seems to be overly complex in its "plumbing", and that worries me. ActiveSync is a ...

This is not possible. BES stores hidden device information such as PIN in your mailbox, activating a second blackberry will override the hidden information from the first device. Your only options would be to setup desktop syncing, in which the devices would sync, but not wirelessly. Alternatively you could go with less features and sync via smtp, or use ...

It can't be done that I'm aware of. Also, your question contradicts itself. You say that you want 3 BB's to access one Exchange account but then you state that you have 3 BB's with 3 different Lotus Domino accounts.

This option controls whether encryption/decryption occur on BlackBerry Enterprise Server (BES) or the mobile device. From John M. Wargo's BlackBerry® Development Fundamentals: In an application opening a secure connection to a backend data source, a BlackBerry device can use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) or the updated Transport Layer Security (TLS) to ...

It's possible that the BES is connecting to the CASArray with only one name, and the agent creation algorithm is in the default "Advanced" mode. In Exchange 2003 there would be one agent per server, and if an Agent were to become hung, then that would cause an outage for all users on that server. Conversely, in Exchange 2010, all users share the same agent ...

Typically there is more to the "The specified server cannot perform the requested operation." error message. If there is, post it as an edit to your question, please. As a "gut reaction" to the symptoms you're describing it sounds like you're not getting good DNS. Make sure that you can resolve the FQDN of the domain and a domain controller. In a typical ...

You can configure Oulook to prefer RPC/HTTPS connections instead of direct RPC even if it's available, but if I understand your question correctly, those are external clients and you don't manage them, so it would be left to the users to configure it correctly. You can't disable MAPI access on the Exchange server, as it would block "true" internal users and ...

If the 404 title (on the browsers top blue (XP) or transparent(Win7) bar) doesn't say JBossWeb/2.0.0.GA_CP - Error reported You have another IIS program running on port 80. If you have installed IIS on this server, disable it and reboot. BB v5.x uses TomCat6 as its web engine. If it isn't this, make a copy of your database file and everything in: ...

The web console (https://server:3443 ISTR) actually includes functionality to use an ActiveX control in IE to activate the device directly against the BES. It's probably the easiest way to go about it, no need to setup separate profiles for each device. This will allow the device to communicate with BES over Wi-Fi even without a BES plan.

If you have IIS on same server, you could have a port conflict on 443. Here are the instructions for changing the port for BlackBerry Device Service: Navigate to Start > Programs > BlackBerry Device Service > BlackBerry Server Configuration Panel > Administration Service Modify the HTTPS Port number to 663 port number Click Apply Click Synchronize ...

Unfortunately there is no way, without third party software, to fully seperate BES and BIS email. I know there is a third party product called Empower that seperates the two. Each user would have to purchase and install it though. Another workaround is as follows: (got this off of Blackberryforums) -At the home screen, open Messages. -Press ...

IMO, BlackBerry devices suck. The iPhone is owning the consumer smartphone market, and people are expecting actual, real-life browsers. The new Windows Mobile and Android devices are looking pretty compelling at this point. I'm responsible for a 90k user Exchange environment. At that scale with Exchange 2007, RPC load caused by BlackBerry users is affecting ...

We have mostly Blackberries with BES 4.5 and a few WinMobile devices that use ActiveSync. Historically, most people have Blackberries because they worked really well for email - pretty much anyone could use a BBerry after just a few minutes of training. Back when they used Mobitex, a BES server talking to RIM's systems which in turn talked to the handhelds ...

Check the webconsole and other related apps or services have been installed and configured. It looks like the webconsole is missing a component but can't give you a proper error message because of a programming bug. BES errors can be a real hoot because they seem to be even less source-related than windows errors.

Lotus Domino does not require Active Directory. You can set up a standalone Domino server and then use a Blackberry Enterprise server along side. As long as there is TCP connectivity, the servers can be wherever you like. So much easier than being tied into everything. (Damn you MS!! )

BES (and BES Express) is fully supported with the Zimbra Collaboration Suite and Zimbra Exchange connector. We use this setup in production at my work as well as a number of our customers. Works quite well.

BES requires Exchange, Domino, or GroupWise (!). RIM has a separate product called "BES for MDS Applications" that looks like it might do what you want if you're developing your own apps. It doesn't appear that the MDS product has all the management functionality of BES.

You can run BESX for Exchange or IBM Lotus Domino, but both require a Windows AD domain. http://us.blackberry.com/apps-software/business/server/express/

Yes, because it is accessing the mailbox in some capacity. Best practice is to have a non-admin account, called BESAdmin. This user is not an admin, but has Exchange read-only access to the mailboxes. EDIT: I'm actually surprised it works. Is this current account a domain admin?

A similar question was asked on Experts Exchange http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Handhelds_-_PDAs/Blackberry/Q_23919386.html Apparently, RIM says it's a bad idea to rename the server. It breaks SQL stuff (which is dependent on the system name). There may be ways to fix that, but the sure way of doing this is to install on a new server and ...

Been there. Simply backing up and restoring the database is not sufficient. Among many other things, one must run the "createdb.exe" tool prior to restoring. All of the necessary details can be found here: http://www.blackberry.com/btsc/viewContent.do?externalId=KB03112

It may be due to the throttling policy. The official BES install instructions are wrong when they tell you how to create the throttling policy. If you followed those directions, then issue this command in EMS: Get-ThrottlingPolicy BESPolicy | Set-ThrottlingPolicy -RCAMaxConcurrency $null If you did not create a policy using RIM's instructions, then try ...

I do not believe this is possible with the current releases of BES. I think the only option is what you mentioned in your question. You can try the solution through the Blackberry desktop application here however it may not hold the effect for your wireless sync.

On the device look under Options -> Messages for 'Auto More'. However there used to be a 'hard' limit of around 40Kb on messages sent to a device. If the messages are over that amount, I'm not sure there's a fix.


1

You can amend the packet size sent to the device in the MDS settings on the BES. You want to goto general and Maximum KB/Connection. I think the max is 1024, we moved this to 512 to handle more data. not my knowledge i just googled your questions and got this from the blackberry forums hopefully it works Blackberry Support Forums
