Upgrade Guide
Overview: BlackBerry Enterprise Server
Overview: BlackBerry Enterprise Server
1
The BlackBerry® Enterprise Server is designed to be a secure, centralized link between an organization's wireless network,
communications software, applications, and BlackBerry devices. The BlackBerry Enterprise Server integrates with your
organization's existing infrastructure, which can include messaging and collaboration software, calendar and contact information,
wireless Internet and intranet access, and custom applications, to provide BlackBerry device users with mobile access to your
organization's resources.
The BlackBerry Enterprise Server supports AES and Triple DES encryption to protect and ensure the integrity of wireless data
that is transmitted between the BlackBerry Enterprise Server components and BlackBerry devices. You can select from more than
450 IT policy rules that you can configure to control the features of the BlackBerry devices that are used in your organization's
environment.
The BlackBerry Enterprise Server supports several optional components and configurations to meet your organization's
requirements. The BlackBerry Collaboration Service integrates with supported third-party instant messaging servers to permit
users to access your organization's instant messaging system from their BlackBerry devices using the BlackBerry instant
messaging client. The BlackBerry MDS Integration Service supports custom application development and distribution. You can
configure the BlackBerry Enterprise Server and the BlackBerry Enterprise Server components to support high availability to
enhance the consistency and reliability of your organization's environment.
You can manage the BlackBerry Enterprise Server, BlackBerry devices, and user accounts using the BlackBerry Administration
Service, a web application that is accessible from any computer that can access to the computer that hosts the BlackBerry
Administration Service. You can use the BlackBerry Administration Service to manage a BlackBerry Domain, which consists of
multiple BlackBerry Enterprise Server instances that use a single BlackBerry Configuration Database.

If your organization's environment includes only one BlackBerry® Enterprise Server at version 4.0 SP7 or 4.1 SP3 or later, you
can upgrade the BlackBerry Enterprise Server to the latest version by overwriting it or by installing the BlackBerry Enterprise
Server on a different computer and moving the user data to the upgraded BlackBerry Enterprise Server.
If your organization's environment includes more than one BlackBerry Enterprise Server at version 4.1 SP3 or later, you can
upgrade each BlackBerry Enterprise Server instance to the latest version in phases to reduce the risk to your organization's
environment and minimize the number of users that are affected at the same time.
For information about upgrading more than one BlackBerry Enterprise Server, see the BlackBerry Enterprise Server Upgrade
Planning Guide.
Supported BlackBerry Enterprise Server versions that you can upgrade from
You can upgrade from the following BlackBerry® Enterprise Server versions to the latest BlackBerry Enterprise Server version:
•
•
BlackBerry Enterprise Server version 4.0 SP7 if your organization has only one BlackBerry Enterprise Server instance in the
BlackBerry Domain
BlackBerry Enterprise Server version 4.1 SP3 or later
Replacing the BlackBerry Manager with the BlackBerry Administration
Service
In BlackBerry® Enterprise Server versions later than version 4.1, the BlackBerry Administration Service replaces the BlackBerry
Manager as the BlackBerry Enterprise Server component that you use to manage the BlackBerry Enterprise Server and BlackBerry
device users.
During the BlackBerry Enterprise Server upgrade process, the setup application removes the BlackBerry Manager. If you installed
a standalone BlackBerry Manager, you can remove the BlackBerry Manager after you install the BlackBerry Administration Service.
After the BlackBerry Enterprise Server upgrade process completes, you must create administrator accounts for the administrators
in your organization and provide the administrators with new login information and the BlackBerry Administration Service web
address. If you try to run the BlackBerry Manager, it displays the "DB version greater than maximum currently supported" message
and closes.

Upgrade Guide
Upgrade implications for the BlackBerry Configuration Database
Upgrade implications for the BlackBerry Configuration Database
When you upgrade to the latest BlackBerry® Enterprise Server version, you must upgrade to the lastest BlackBerry Configuration
Database version. To upgrade the BlackBerry Configuration Database, you can use the setup application to run the database
upgrade scripts during the installation of the BlackBerry Administration Service or the installation upgrade of a BlackBerry
Enterprise Server instance. If you do not want to use the setup application, you can run the database upgrade scripts on the
database server to upgrade the BlackBerry Configuration Database. If you run the database upgrade scripts on the database
server, you cannot manage the BlackBerry Enterprise Server until you install the BlackBerry Administration Service and a
BlackBerry Enterprise Server instance.
When you upgrade to the latest BlackBerry Configuration Database version, the upgrade process deletes the role and the
administration accounts. After you complete the BlackBerry Enterprise Server upgrade process, you must add the roles and
administraion accounts to the BlackBerry Configuration Database using the BlackBerry Administration Service.
After you upgrade to the latest BlackBerry Configuration Database version, you cannot install earlier versions of BlackBerry
Enterprise Server components. The BlackBerry Administration Service cannot manage earlier versions of BlackBerry Enterprise
Server components that you install after you upgrade the BlackBerry Configuration Database.
The latest BlackBerry Enterprise Server version supports a BlackBerry Configuration Database that MSDE hosts, but you can
upgrade MSDE to a version of Microsoft® SQL Server® that Microsoft supports. After you create a copy of the BlackBerry
Configuration Database, you can move the copy to the later version of the Microsoft SQL Server before you upgrade the BlackBerry
Enterprise Server to the latest version.
BlackBerry® Enterprise Server for IBM® Lotus® Domino® version 5.0 does not support the IBM® DB2® UDB. Support for the
IBM DB2 UDB is planned for a future release.
Synchronizing data over the wireless network automatically
When you upgrade the BlackBerry® Enterprise Server, the BlackBerry Synchronization Service sends updated service books to
the BlackBerry devices that can synchronize data over the wireless network. BlackBerry® Device Software versions 4.0 and later
can synchronize data automatically if the BlackBerry Enterprise Server is running.
If the data does not synchronize automatically, you must use the BlackBerry Administration Service to resend the service books
and synchronize the data.

The following are requirements for a BlackBerry® Enterprise Server and the BlackBerry Enterprise Server components that you
install on a single computer, and excludes the BlackBerry Collaboration Service and the BlackBerry MDS Integration Service. The
requirements are for a BlackBerry Enterprise Server environment that includes users that receive 100 to 200 email messages
each day.
You can improve the performance and reliability of the BlackBerry Enterprise Server by installing the BlackBerry Enterprise Server
components on multiple computers. If your BlackBerry Enterprise Server environment supports up to 1000 users, install the
BlackBerry Configuration Database on a computer that is separate from the computer that hosts the BlackBerry Enterprise Server.
If your BlackBerry Enterprise Server environment supports up to 2000 users, install the BlackBerry Configuration Database and
the BlackBerry Administration Service on computers that are separate from the computer that hosts the BlackBerry Enterprise
Server.

Configuring a messaging environment
Configure a group for the BlackBerry Enterprise Server
You must configure a group named BlackBerryAdmins in your organization's messaging environment. The BlackBerryAdmins
group includes permissions that the BlackBerry® Enterprise Server can use to access specific databases. You can administer the
BlackBerry Enterprise Server and the BlackBerry Administration Service only with the groups and user accounts that you include
in the BlackBerryAdmins group.
Before you begin: Verify that the LocalDomainServers group includes the computer you want to install the BlackBerry Enterprise
Server on.
1.
On a computer that hosts the IBM® Lotus® Domino® administration console, in the administration server directory, create
an IBM Lotus Domino group with the following attributes:
•
Name: BlackBerryAdmins
•
Group type: Access Control List only
•
Description: Users who can add, delete, and change settings for BlackBerry device users
•
Members: LocalDomainServers, any groups or users who might administer the BlackBerry Enterprise Server
2.
On the server that you want to install the BlackBerry Enterprise Server on, replicate the BlackBerryAdmins group in the IBM
Lotus Domino Directory.
Configure the Server document to permit the BlackBerry Enterprise Server to move user
accounts within a BlackBerry Domain
You must configure the Server document so that you can move user accounts between BlackBerry® Enterprise Server instances
in your organization's BlackBerry Domain.
1. On a computer that hosts the IBM® Lotus® Domino® administration console, open the Server document for the IBM Lotus
Domino server that you want to install the BlackBerry Enterprise Server on.
2. In the Run unrestricted methods and operations field, add the LocalDomainServers group.
Configuring connections for the BlackBerry Enterprise Server databases
The BlackBerry® Enterprise Server, BlackBerry Monitoring Service, and BlackBerry MDS Integration Service store data in their
own databases. The database for the BlackBerry Enterprise Server is named the BlackBerry Configuration Database.
19
Upgrade Guide
Configuring connections for the BlackBerry Enterprise Server databases
You can create the BlackBerry Configuration Database by installing a BlackBerry Enterprise Server instance or BlackBerry
Administration Service instance, or by running the CreateDB executable. You can create the BlackBerry MDS Integration Service
database or BlackBerry Monitoring Service database during the installation processes for the BlackBerry MDS Integration Service
or BlackBerry Monitoring Service respectively.
The BlackBerry Enterprise Server, BlackBerry Monitoring Service, and BlackBerry MDS Integration Service can connect to the
databases on the Microsoft® SQL Server® using Windows® authentication or database authentication. By default, the BlackBerry
Enterprise Server, BlackBerry Monitoring Service, and BlackBerry MDS Integration Service log in to the databases using the
Windows account that you use to complete the installation process, or the database credentials you provided during the installation
process.
To support Microsoft SQL Server 2005 database mirroring with the BlackBerry Configuration Database or BlackBerry MDS
Integration Service database, you must use Windows authentication. The BlackBerry Monitoring Service does not support database
mirroring.
Specifying permissions when connecting to the BlackBerry Enterprise Server databases using
Windows authentication
During the installation process, if you connect the BlackBerry® Enterprise Server, BlackBerry MDS Integration Service, and
BlackBerry Monitoring Service to the BlackBerry® Enterprise Server databases using Windows® authentication, the Windows
account that you specify must have database permissions on the database server. The type of permissions depends on the setup
option that you select, and whether you create the BlackBerry Enterprise Server databases on the same computer as the BlackBerry
Enterprise Server components or on another database server.
Specifying Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express permissions for the Windows account
If you install Microsoft® SQL Server® 2005 Express during the BlackBerry® Enterprise Server installation process, you do not
need to specify additional permissions. When you select Windows® authentication during the BlackBerry Enterprise Server
installation process, the setup application automatically assigns the required permissions to the Windows account that you use
to complete the installation process.
Assign Microsoft SQL Server permissions to the Windows account
Perform one of the following actions:
• If you create the BlackBerry® Enterprise Server databases on the same computer as the BlackBerry Enterprise Server
and require the setup application to install Microsoft® SQL Server® Express during the installation process, you do not
need to assign Microsoft SQL Server permissions to the Windows® account . If you want the setup application to install
the BlackBerry database notification system, assign the system administrator permission to the Windows account.
20
Upgrade Guide
Configuring connections for the BlackBerry Enterprise Server databases
• If you create the BlackBerry Enterprise Server databases on the same computer as the BlackBerry Enterprise Server and
the computer already hosts a Microsoft SQL Server, assign the database creator permission to the Windows account that
you use to complete the BlackBerry Enterprise Server installation process. If you want the setup application to install
the BlackBerry database notification system, also assign the system administrator permission to the Windows account.
• If you create the BlackBerry Enterprise Server databases on another computer, assign the database creator permission
to the Windows account that you want to use to complete the BlackBerry Enterprise Server installation process.
Configuring authentication to the BlackBerry MDS Integration Service database
When the setup application creates the BlackBerry® MDS Integration Service database during the installation process, you must
use the same authentication method and account that you specified for the BlackBerry Configuration Database. The BlackBerry
MDS Integration Service requires the same permissions to access the BlackBerry MDS Integration Service database that the
BlackBerry® Enterprise Server requires to access the BlackBerry Configuration Database.
Configuring the local system account in an IBM Lotus Domino environment
Add Windows credentials to the the local system account
You can configure the local system account to access the BlackBerry® Enterprise Server, install the BlackBerry Configuration
Database on a computer that is separate from computer that hosts the BlackBerry Enterprise Server, and use Windows®
authentication to connect to the BlackBerry Configuration Database.
In the Microsoft® SQL Server® Enterprise Manager or Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio, create a new user account
with the following properties:
• user name that is the same as the name of the BlackBerry Enterprise Server computer, and uses the format <Domain>
\<computer_name>$
• authentication configured to Windows authentication
• roles assigned that are required to change the BlackBerry Configuration Database
Add database credentials to the local system account
You can add the user name and password for the database account to the Windows® registry if you want to use a local system
account for the BlackBerry® Enterprise Server, install the BlackBerry Configuration Database on a computer that is separate from
the computer that hosts the BlackBerry Enterprise Server, and use database authentication to connect to the BlackBerry
Configuration Database.

Resolving IT policy and application control policy conflicts in a mixed version environment
• Password
Resolving IT policy and application control policy conflicts in a mixed version
environment
In BlackBerry® Enterprise Server versions earlier than version 5.0, the BlackBerry Policy Service queues delivery requests for IT
policies and application control policies and sends them to BlackBerry devices. In BlackBerry Enterprise Server version 5.0, the
BlackBerry Administration Service queues the IT policies and application control policies, and the BlackBerry Policy Service sends
them to BlackBerry devices.
To avoid conflicts between the BlackBerry Policy Service and BlackBerry Administration Service in a mixed version environment,
the setup application tries to turn off application polling by the BlackBerry Policy Service for each BlackBerry Enterprise Server
instance in the BlackBerry Domain before it starts the upgrade process. When the setup application turns off application polling,
it prevents earlier versions of the BlackBerry Policy Service from queuing delivery requests for IT policies and application control
policies.
If the setup application cannot turn off application polling for all BlackBerry Enterprise Server instances (for example, a computer
that hosts one of the BlackBerry Enterprise Server instances is not running), you must run the BB50UpgradePrep tool manually
before you can upgrade the BlackBerry Enterprise Server.

Backing up the BlackBerry Configuration Database
You must back up the BlackBerry® Configuration Database so that you can restore it if the BlackBerry® Enterprise Server upgrade
process does not complete.
If your organization's environment includes Microsoft® SQL Server®, use the backup and restore tools that Microsoft provides
to back up the BlackBerry Configuration Database.
If your organization's environment includes an MSDE 2000 or Microsoft SQL Server Express, you can use the BlackBerry
Configuration Database Backup Tool that is included with the BlackBerry Enterprise Server installation media to back up the
BlackBerry Configuration Database to a file. By default, the backup file is named <database_name> <YYYYMMDDHHMMSS>.bak.

Configuring the LDAP information for the BlackBerry Administration Service
The BlackBerry® Administration Service requires access to the LDAP server so that the BlackBerry Administration Service can
read user information in Microsoft® Active Directory® when it authenticates the BlackBerry® Web Desktop Manager users. To
access the LDAP server, the BlackBerry Administration Service requires the URL of the LDAP server, the search base to find where
the user accounts are stored, and the administrator's LDAP credentials.
During the installation process and upgrade process, the setup application populates the LDAP information automatically. You
must verify this information to ensure that it reflects the requirements of the BlackBerry Administration Service.
Configure permissions for the administrator account on the LDAP server that the BlackBerry
Administration Service uses
To authenticate a user account, you must configure permissions for an adminstrator account on the LDAP server so that the
BlackBerry® Administration Service can read LDAP attributes in the Microsoft® Active Directory®.
Before you begin: Create an administrator account for the BlackBerry Administration Service.
1.
In Microsoft Active Directory, in the search base container and all subcontainers that user accounts are located in, add the
following permissions to the administrator account:
• for containers, the List Contents permission
• for user objects, the Read All Properties permission

Migrating BlackBerry MDS Runtime Applications
If the user accounts in your organization's environment are stored in more than one domain in a Microsoft® Active Directory®
forest, you must configure the LDAP settings that the BlackBerry Administration Service uses so that the BlackBerry Administration
Service can search the global catalog.

3.
During the installation process, specify the DNS host name of a global catalog server as the LDAP server name that is
included in the LDAP server URL.
Specify the LDAP port number to be 3268.
Specify the LDAP user name and password to be the user name and password of an administrator account that has permission
to read user attributes from the global catalog.
Migrating BlackBerry MDS Runtime Applications
Previous versions of the BlackBerry® MDS Integration Service used a BlackBerry MDS Integration Service database (mdss), and
a BlackBerry MDS Integration Service discovery database (mdss_dis) to store BlackBerry® MDS Runtime Applications and
application data. The latest BlackBerry MDS Integration Service version does not use a BlackBerry MDS Integration Service
discovery database. During the upgrade process, the setup application merges all tables of the BlackBerry MDS Integration
Service discovery database into the BlackBerry MDS Integration Service database. As a result, the upgrade process does not
migrate all published BlackBerry MDS Integration Service applications such as BlackBerry MDS Runtime Applications.
To migrate BlackBerry MDS Runtime Applications, you must republish the BlackBerry MDS Runtime Applications to the BlackBerry
MDS Application Repository after the upgrade process completes, or you must migrate the BlackBerry MDS Integration Service
discovery database to the BlackBerry MDS Integration Service version 4.1 database before you start the upgrade process. If you
migrate the BlackBerry MDS Integration Service discovery database and install new BlackBerry MDS Integration Service instances
instead of upgrading the existing BlackBerry MDS Integration Service instances, you must reconfigure any backend notification
subscriptions. If you migrate the BlackBerry MDS Integration Service discovery database, BlackBerry devices that are running
BlackBerry® MDS Runtime versions earlier than version 4.5 remove the applications that are installed.
Migrate data from the BlackBerry MDS Integration Service discovery database to the
BlackBerry MDS Integration Service database

Creating a BlackBerry Administration Service pool using DNS round robin
that includes the BlackBerry Web Desktop Manager
When you install a BlackBerry® Administration Service, you install the BlackBerry Administration Service services automatically,
and you can choose to install the BlackBerry Administration Service console, BlackBerry® Web Desktop Manager, or both. The
BlackBerry Administration Service console and BlackBerry Web Desktop Manager require the BlackBerry Administration Service
services so that they can run.
If you create a BlackBerry Administration Service pool using DNS round robin, you can install the BlackBerry Administration
Service console and BlackBerry Web Desktop Manager on each computer in the pool, or you can install the BlackBerry
Administration Service console or BlackBerry Web Desktop Manager on some of the computers in the pool. If you install the
BlackBerry Administration Service console and BlackBerry Web Desktop Manager on each computer in the pool, you can use the

Creating a BlackBerry MDS Integration Service pool
pool name that you specified during the installation process in the URLs for the BlackBerry Administration Service console and
BlackBerry Web Desktop Manager (for example, https://<pool_name>/webconsole/login or https://<pool_name>/webdesktop/
login).
If you do not install both components on each computer in the pool, and you try to access one of the URLs using the pool name,
the web browser might display an HTTP 404 error message if it tries to connect to a computer in the pool that you did not install
the component on that you are trying to access. For example, you can install the BlackBerry Administration Service console on
two of the computers in the pool, and the BlackBerry Web Desktop Manager on two different computers in the pool, and the
HTTP 404 error message might occur when you use the pool name in the URLs.
To make sure that the web browser does not display HTTP 404 error messages, you can choose one of the following options:
•
You can create separate pools within the BlackBerry Administration Service pool for the BlackBerry Administration Service
console and the BlackBerry Web Desktop Manager. These pools contain a subset of the BlackBerry Administration Service
instances that exist in the BlackBerry Administration Service pool. You can provide your organization's administrators and
users with URLs that include the specific pool names.
•
You can provide administrators and users in your organization's environment with URLs that include the FQDNs of the
computers that you installed the BlackBerry Administration Service console or BlackBerry Web Desktop Manager on (for
example, https://<FQDN_of_computer>/webconsole/login or https://<FQDN_of_computer>/webdesktop/login).
Creating a BlackBerry MDS Integration Service pool
You can create a BlackBerry® MDS Integration Service pool using the setup application during the installation processes for the
BlackBerry MDS Integration Service instances that you want to include in the pool. During the installation process for the first
BlackBerry MDS Integration Service instance, you must type a unique FQDN or DNS name that identifies the pool. During the
installation processes for the subsequent BlackBerry MDS Integration Service instances, you must select the existing pool name
from the list so that you can add the instances to the pool. After you complete the installation processes, BlackBerry MDS
Integration Service clients can access the BlackBerry MDS Integration Service instances in the pool using the unique DNS name.
Create the DNS record for a BlackBerry Administration Service instance or
BlackBerry MDS Integration Service instance
To configure multiple BlackBerry® Administration Service instances or BlackBerry MDS Integration Service instances for high
availability using DNS round robin, you must create a DNS record. The DNS record permits the clients of the BlackBerry
Administration Service pool or BlackBerry MDS Integration Service pool to access the instances using a single DNS name. You
must create the DNS record in the same domain as the computers that host the BlackBerry Administration Service instances or
BlackBerry MDS Integration Service instances.
Before you begin:
•
You must configure a static IP address for each computer that you want to install a BlackBerry MDS Integration Service
instance or BlackBerry Administration Service instance on.

After you finish: To remove a BlackBerry Administration Service instance or BlackBerry MDS Integration Service instance from
a pool, delete the entry for the IP address of the BlackBerry Administration Service instance or BlackBerry MDS Integration Service
instance from the DNS server.
Configuring the setup application to use a non-default static port number
for the database server
If the Microsoft® SQL Server® in your organization's environment does not use the default static port number (port 1433), the
BlackBerry® Enterprise Server setup application cannot connect to the database server. Before you run the setup application,
you must create an alias to the database server that specifies the port number that the database server is using. To configure an
alias, you can use Microsoft SQL Server Configuration Manager or the cliconfg.exe tool. You can configure the name of the alias
so that it is the same name as the Microsoft SQL Server. You must use the cliconfg.exe tool if the database server is Microsoft
SQL Server 2000.

•
You can move user accounts to the new BlackBerry Enterprise Server instances gradually to limit the number of service
books and IT policies that the BlackBerry Policy Service sends to BlackBerry devices at the same time.
•
You can monitor system performance as you add user accounts.
•
You can change your organization's environment during the upgrade process by changing which user accounts you associate
with each BlackBerry Enterprise Server instance.
Disadvantages of this upgrade process include:
•
You require extra computers.
•
You require additional SRP credentials.
•
If you move user accounts from one BlackBerry Configuration Database to another, you lose the BlackBerry device options
that you backed up in the BlackBerry Configuration Database.
•

Configuring BlackBerry MDS Integration Service high availablility during the
upgrade process
The setup application creates a separate pool for each BlackBerry® MDS Integration Service instance that you upgrade. You
cannot add the upgraded BlackBerry MDS Integration Service instances to a pool so that you can configure high availability. You
can configure high availability only for new BlackBerry MDS Integration Service instances that you install.
You can consider upgrading a BlackBerry MDS Integration Service instance to the latest version if one of the following conditions
apply:
•
Your organization uses the BlackBerry MDS Integration Service as a standalone service and does not have plans to configure
BlackBerry MDS Integration Service high availability.
•
Your organization plans to configure BlackBerry MDS Integration Service high availability and the existing BlackBerry MDS
Integration Service version 4.1 instance is installed on a computer that does not have other software (for example, a database
server or third-party applications) installed on it.
If your organization plans to configure BlackBerry MDS Integration Service high availability, you must upgrade the BlackBerry
MDS Integration Service version 4.1 instance as the first instance in the BlackBerry MDS Integration Service pool. You must use
the FQDN of the computer that hosts the BlackBerry MDS Integration Service instance as the virtual name of the BlackBerry
MDS Integration Service pool.
If one of the above conditions do not apply, you can consider installing the latest BlackBerry MDS Integration Service version on
new computers. When you do so, after installing the BlackBerry MDS Integration Service instances, you must republish the
BlackBerry® MDS Runtime Applications.

Upgrade Guide
Change applications to support BlackBerry MDS Connection Service failover
Install a BlackBerry MDS Integration Service pool in an upgraded environment
When you install new BlackBerry® MDS Integration Service instances in an upgraded environment instead of upgrading existing
BlackBerry MDS Integration Service instances, you lose backend notification subscriptions. BlackBerry devices that run
BlackBerry® MDS Runtime Application versions earlier than version 4.5 remove the applications.
1. Install all BlackBerry MDS Integration Service instances in the pool.
2. Publish all existing BlackBerry MDS Runtime Applications.
3. Install all BlackBerry MDS Runtime Applications on a test BlackBerry device.
4. To migrate users from BlackBerry MDS Integration Service version 4.1 to the new BlackBerry MDS Integration Service pool,
in the BlackBerry Administration Service, update the BlackBerry Enterprise Server to associate with the new BlackBerry
MDS Integration Service pool.
After you finish:
•
Configure backend notification subscriptions.
•
Resend applications to BlackBerry devices that run BlackBerry MDS Runtime Application versions earlier than version 4.5.
•
For more information, see the BlackBerry Enterprise Server Installation Guide.
Change applications to support BlackBerry MDS Connection Service failover
In earlier versions of the BlackBerry® Enterprise Server, an organization's push applications connected to only one instance of
the BlackBerry MDS Connection Service central push server. You must make sure that your organization's applications can access
all central push servers.
1. Change the applications to access central push servers only, and not BlackBerry MDS Connection Service instances that
administrators have not configured to also act as central push servers.
2. To change your organization's applications to support central push server failover, perform one of the following actions:
• Configure an HTTP or HTTPS proxy server that applications send requests through. Use this option if the applications
are located on the Internet. Optionally, you can place the proxy server in the DMZ.
• Configure the application servers to use a list of IP addresses to find an available central push server. If a central push
server does not respond to a request, the application can try to connect to another central push server.
• Configure a hardware load balancer such as the BIG-IP® load balancer. The load balancer accepts all requests from the
application servers, and distributes the traffic to the various central push servers. If a central push server does not respond,
the load balancer redistributes the requests to the remaining central push servers.
• Configure the application to use the new HTTP response header x-rim-push-gateways.

After you complete the upgrade process, you can assign an IT policy to a group. When you assign an IT policy to a group, the
BlackBerry® Enterprise Server can assign the IT policy to each user account in the group. However, if an IT policy is already
assigned to a user account in a group, the BlackBerry Enterprise Server sends the IT policy that is assigned to the user account
to the BlackBerry device. To use the IT policy that is assigned to the group, you must remove the IT policy that is assigned to the
user account.

Configuring minimum Microsoft SQL Server permissions for the Windows
account
The BlackBerry® Enterprise Server setup application requires the Windows® account that it uses during the installation process
or upgrade process to have Microsoft® SQL Server® permissions to create or upgrade the BlackBerry Configuration Database.
The setup application requires the Windows account to have more Microsoft SQL Server permissions to install the BlackBerry
Enterprise Server than the BlackBerry Enterprise Server requires to run.
After the installation or upgrade process completes, you can change the Microsoft SQL Server permissions of the Windows account
to the Microsoft SQL Server permissions that the BlackBerry Enterprise Server requires to run. When you change the Microsoft
SQL Server permissions of the Windows account, you can use Microsoft SQL Server security to minimize the operations that the
Windows account can perform on the BlackBerry Configuration Database.
