Installation and Configuration 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 smartphones. The BlackBerry Enterprise Server integrates with your organization's existing infrastructure to provide smartphone users with mobile access to your organization's resources.

You can manage the BlackBerry Enterprise Server, smartphones, and user accounts using the BlackBerry Administration

Service. You can access the BlackBerry Administration Service web application from any computer that can access the computer that hosts the BlackBerry Administration Service.

You can optionally install BlackBerry Management Studio in your organization's environment to provide a simplified administrative console for your organization's helpdesk administrators and an integrated view of the BlackBerry Enterprise

Server and other MDM domains. For more information, visit http://www.blackberry.com/go/serverdocs to see the

BlackBerry Management Studio Feature and Technical Overview.

Installation and Configuration Guide Planning a BlackBerry Enterprise Server installation

Planning a BlackBerry

Enterprise Server installation

2

You can install all BlackBerry Enterprise Server components on one computer, or you can install specific components on separate computers. You should consider any impact to system resources before you decide where to install the components.

You install all components on one computer if you do not plan to activate many BlackBerry devices, if you determine that the computer can manage the volume of traffic for the BlackBerry Enterprise Server components, and if it is acceptable that the computer has direct access to the Internet, without being located in the DMZ.

If you want to configure high availability, you must install an additional BlackBerry Enterprise Server on a computer that is separate from the computer that hosts the primary BlackBerry Enterprise Server. During the installation process, you specify that the duplicate BlackBerry Enterprise Server is the standby BlackBerry Enterprise Server.

For performance information, see the BlackBerry Enterprise Server Performance Benchmarking Guide.

For more information about high availability, see the BlackBerry Enterprise Server Planning Guide.

Installing all BlackBerry Enterprise Server components on one computer

If you want to evaluate the BlackBerry Enterprise Server or complete a BlackBerry Enterprise Server installation for a small number of users, you can install all the BlackBerry Enterprise Server components on the same computer.

During the installation process you can choose to install the BlackBerry Collaboration Service and BlackBerry Web Desktop

Manager with the BlackBerry Enterprise Server. All of the other BlackBerry Enterprise Server components are installed automatically when you install the BlackBerry Enterprise Server.

Installation and Configuration Guide Planning a BlackBerry Enterprise Server installation

Installing the BlackBerry Administration

Service

The BlackBerry Administration Service permits you to manage a BlackBerry Enterprise Server domain through a webbased application. A BlackBerry Enterprise Server domain consists of one BlackBerry Configuration Database and all

BlackBerry Enterprise Server instances and remote components that use the BlackBerry Configuration Database.

You can install the BlackBerry Administration Service with other BlackBerry Enterprise Server components or by itself on a separate computer. You can install the BlackBerry Administration Service on a separate computer to limit the impact that the BlackBerry Administration Service might have on system resources and to prevent administrators in your organization from accessing any part of the computer that hosts the BlackBerry Enterprise Server. If you install the BlackBerry

Administration Service before you install a BlackBerry Enterprise Server, the installation process will complete successfully but it will not function properly until the BlackBerry Enterprise Server is installed.

When you install the BlackBerry Administration Service, you can install the BlackBerry Web Desktop Manager and select whether you want administrators to use Windows authentication or BlackBerry Administration Service authentication to log in to the BlackBerry Administration Service. You must verify that all administrators have access to the BlackBerry

Administration Service web address (https://<computer_name>:<port>/webconsole/app).

Installing the BlackBerry Attachment

Service

The BlackBerry Attachment Service converts supported attachments into a format that users can view on their BlackBerry devices. By default, the BlackBerry Enterprise Server includes the BlackBerry Attachment Service.

The BlackBerry Attachment Service might use increased system resources when it processes numerous conversion requests simultaneously. If you want to increase the number of conversion requests that can occur concurrently without impacting message delivery, you can install a BlackBerry Attachment Service on a computer that is separate from the computer that hosts the BlackBerry Enterprise Server.

You can connect multiple BlackBerry Enterprise Server instances and BlackBerry MDS Connection Service instances to a

BlackBerry Attachment Service instance.

When you install the BlackBerry Attachment Service on a computer that is separate from the computer that hosts the

BlackBerry Enterprise Server, the installation process installs the BlackBerry Attachment Service and BlackBerry

Controller. The BlackBerry Controller monitors the BlackBerry Attachment Service and restarts it if it stops responding.

9

Installation and Configuration Guide Planning a BlackBerry Enterprise Server installation

Installing the BlackBerry Collaboration

Service

The BlackBerry Collaboration Service provides an encrypted connection between your organization's instant messaging server and the collaboration client on BlackBerry devices so that BlackBerry device users can start and manage instant messaging conversations on their devices.

If you want to maximize the number of sockets available so that the BlackBerry Collaboration Service can respond to an increased amount of requests from the collaboration client, you can install the BlackBerry Collaboration Service by itself on a computer that is separate from the computer that hosts the BlackBerry Enterprise Server. (Microsoft Office

Communications Server 2007 R2 and Microsoft Lync Server 2010 do not use persistent socket connections.)

If you install the BlackBerry Collaboration Service on a separate computer, the installation process installs the BlackBerry

Collaboration Service and BlackBerry Controller. The BlackBerry Controller monitors the BlackBerry Collaboration Service and restarts it if it stops responding.

You can connect multiple BlackBerry Enterprise Server instances to a BlackBerry Collaboration Service instance.

A different type of BlackBerry Collaboration Service exists for each instant messaging environment. For example, a

BlackBerry Collaboration Service exists for Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007, and a different BlackBerry

Collaboration Service exists for IBM Sametime. You can install only one type of BlackBerry Collaboration Service for each

BlackBerry Enterprise Server in your organization's environment. Users can use only one type of collaboration client on their devices.

10

Installing the BlackBerry MDS Connection

Service

The BlackBerry MDS Connection Service provides users with access to online content and applications on your organization's intranet or the Internet. By default, the BlackBerry Enterprise Server includes the BlackBerry MDS

Connection Service.

The BlackBerry MDS Connection Service might use increased system resources when it processes content requests. If you want to minimize the impact this has on message delivery, you can install the BlackBerry MDS Connection Service by itself on a computer that is separate from the computer that hosts the BlackBerry Enterprise Server.

You can connect multiple BlackBerry Enterprise Server instances to a BlackBerry MDS Connection Service instance.

When you install the BlackBerry MDS Connection Service on a separate computer, you must assign at least one BlackBerry

Enterprise Server instance to it during the installation process. The BlackBerry MDS Connection Service uses the

BlackBerry Enterprise Server information to connect to the BlackBerry Attachment Service.

Installation and Configuration Guide Planning a BlackBerry Enterprise Server installation

When you install the BlackBerry MDS Connection Service on a separate computer, the installation process installs the

BlackBerry MDS Connection Service and BlackBerry Controller. The BlackBerry Controller monitors the BlackBerry MDS

Connection Service and restarts it if it stops responding.

Installing the BlackBerry Router

The BlackBerry Router connects to the wireless network and sends data to and from BlackBerry devices.

You can install a BlackBerry Router with other BlackBerry Enterprise Server components or by itself on a separate computer. You can install the BlackBerry Router on a computer that is separate from the computer that hosts the

BlackBerry Enterprise Server if you want to install the BlackBerry Router in the DMZ, or to install standby BlackBerry

Router instances as failover components in case the primary BlackBerry Router is unavailable.

You can connect multiple BlackBerry Enterprise Server instances to a BlackBerry Router instance.

If you install the BlackBerry Router on a separate computer, the installation process installs the BlackBerry Router and

BlackBerry Controller. The BlackBerry Controller monitors the BlackBerry Router and restarts it if it stops responding.

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. 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 connections for the BlackBerry

Enterprise Server database

The database for the BlackBerry Enterprise Server is the BlackBerry Configuration Database. You create the BlackBerry

Configuration Database when you install a BlackBerry Enterprise Server or BlackBerry Administration Service or when you run the CreateDB executable.

The BlackBerry Enterprise Server can connect to its database on the Microsoft SQL Server using Windows authentication or database authentication. By default, the BlackBerry Enterprise Server logs in to its database using the Windows account that you use to complete the installation process or the database credentials you provided during the installation process.

To support database mirroring for the BlackBerry Configuration Database with Microsoft SQL Server 2005 or Microsoft SQL

Server 2008, you must use Windows authentication.

Specifying permissions when you connect to the

BlackBerry Configuration Database using Windows authentication or Microsoft SQL Server authentication

If you connect the BlackBerry Enterprise Server to the BlackBerry Configuration Database using Windows authentication or

Microsoft SQL Server authentication during the BlackBerry Enterprise Server installation process, the Windows account or

Microsoft SQL Server account that you specify must have database permissions on the database server. The type of permissions that you specify is determined by the setup option that you select and whether you create the BlackBerry

Configuration Database on the computer that hosts the BlackBerry Enterprise Server components or on another database server.

Installation and Configuration Guide Preinstallation tasks

Specifying permissions for the Windows account or Microsoft SQL Server account

If you install Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Express Edition during the BlackBerry Enterprise Server installation process, you might need to specify permissions for the Windows account or Microsoft SQL Server account, depending on the type of authentication you select.

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.

When you select Microsoft SQL Server authentication during the BlackBerry Enterprise Server installation process, you must assign the required database permissions to the Microsoft SQL Server account that you use to complete the installation process.

Assign permissions to the Windows account or Microsoft SQL Server account

Perform one of the following actions:

• If you create the BlackBerry Configuration Database on the computer that hosts the BlackBerry Enterprise Server and you require the setup application to install Microsoft SQL Server Express during the installation process and you choose

Windows authentication, you are not required to assign Microsoft SQL Server permissions to the Windows account. If you want the setup application to install the BlackBerry database notification system, you must assign the Microsoft

SQL Server permission for the database system administrator (also called the sysadmin server role in Microsoft SQL

Server Management Studio) to the Windows account.

• If you create the BlackBerry Configuration Database on the computer that hosts the BlackBerry Enterprise Server and you require the setup application to install Microsoft SQL Server Express during the installation process and you choose

Microsoft SQL Server authentication, you must assign the database creator (dbcreator server role) Microsoft SQL Server permission to the Microsoft SQL Server account. If you want the setup application to install the BlackBerry database notification system, you must assign the Microsoft SQL Server permission for the database system administrator (also called the sysadmin server role in Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio) to the Microsoft SQL Server account.

• If you create the BlackBerry Configuration Database on the computer that hosts the BlackBerry Enterprise Server and the computer already hosts a Microsoft SQL Server, you must assign the database creator (dbcreator server role)

Microsoft SQL Server permission to the Windows account or Microsoft SQL Server 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, you must assign the Microsoft SQL Server permission for the database system administrator (also called the sysadmin server role in Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio) to the Windows account or Microsoft SQL

Server account.

• If you create the BlackBerry Configuration Database on a computer that does not host the BlackBerry Enterprise

Server, you must assign the database creator (dbcreator server role) Microsoft SQL Server permission to the Windows or Microsoft SQL Server 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, you must assign the Microsoft SQL

Server permission for the database system administrator (also called the sysadmin server role in Microsoft SQL Server

Management Studio) to the Windows account or Microsoft SQL Server account.

Create a BlackBerry Configuration Database

If the security required by your organization does not allow applications to have permissions to create or upgrade databases, you can run the CreateDB executable on the database server to create the BlackBerry Configuration Database instead of using the setup application. After you create or upgrade the BlackBerry Configuration Database using the

CreateDB executable, you can run the setup application using a Windows account with minimum requirements to the database server.

Before you begin: Verify that the appropriate permissions are configured on the database server.

1.

Log in to the computer that hosts the database server using a local administrator account or a Windows account that has SQL administrator permissions.

2.

Copy the BlackBerry Enterprise Server installation files to the database server that you want to configure as the host server for the BlackBerry Configuration Database.

Creating a BlackBerry Administration

Service pool that includes the BlackBerry

Web Desktop Manager using DNS round robin

When you install the BlackBerry Administration Service, BlackBerry Web Desktop Manager, or both, the setup application installs the BlackBerry Administration Service services automatically. The BlackBerry Administration Service and

BlackBerry Web Desktop Manager require the BlackBerry Administration Service services to run.

If you create a BlackBerry Administration Service pool using DNS round robin, you can install the BlackBerry

Administration Service and BlackBerry Web Desktop Manager on each computer in the pool or you can install the

BlackBerry Administration Service or BlackBerry Web Desktop Manager on some of the computers in the pool. If you install the BlackBerry Administration Service and BlackBerry Web Desktop Manager on each computer in the pool, you can use the pool name that you specified during the installation process in the URLs for the BlackBerry Administration Service 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. The HTTP 404 error message occurs when the web browser 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 on two of the computers in the pool and the BlackBerry

Web Desktop Manager on two other computers in the pool.

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 and the BlackBerry Web Desktop Manager. You can provide your organization's administrators and BlackBerry device 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 or BlackBerry Web Desktop Manager on (for example, https://<FQDN_of_computer>/webconsole/login or https://<FQDN_of_computer>/webdesktop/login).

Create the DNS record for a BlackBerry

Administration Service instance

To configure multiple BlackBerry Administration 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 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.

Before you begin:

• Configure a static IP address for each computer that you want to install a BlackBerry Administration Service instance on.

• Obtain permission to manage the DNS.

• If you configure DNS round robin, configure clients to resolve the DNS name into a list of IP addresses and distribute traffic equally across the BlackBerry Administration Service instances in the pool.

1.

Log in to the DNS server.

2.

In the DNS management console, access the forward lookup zone that you want to add the BlackBerry

Administration Service instance to.

3.

To create a new host, perform the following actions:

1. In the Name field, type the name of the BlackBerry Administration Service pool that you want to use.

2. In the IP Address1 field, type the IP address of the computer that you want to host a BlackBerry Administration

Service instance on.

3. Select the Create associated pointer (PTR) record check box.

4.

Repeat step 3 for each BlackBerry Administration Service instance that you want to install. When you add entries to the same pool, you must use the same pool name for all BlackBerry Administration Service instances.

After you finish: To remove a BlackBerry Administration Service instance from a pool, delete the entry for the IP address of the BlackBerry Administration Service instance from the DNS server.

Installation and Configuration Guide Installing a standby BlackBerry Enterprise Server

Installing a standby BlackBerry

Enterprise Server

7

To configure the BlackBerry Enterprise Server for high availability and disaster recovery, you install a standby BlackBerry

Enterprise Server on a separate computer from your organization's primary BlackBerry Enterprise Server. During the installation process, you assign a standby BlackBerry Enterprise Server to a primary BlackBerry Enterprise Server. You can assign only one standby BlackBerry Enterprise Server to each primary BlackBerry Enterprise Server. The setup application assigns the SRP credentials of the primary BlackBerry Enterprise Server to the standby BlackBerry Enterprise Server automatically.

When you install a standby BlackBerry Enterprise Server, you can install the same BlackBerry Enterprise Server components that are installed on the primary BlackBerry Enterprise Server, or different components. For example, you might want to install additional components with the standby BlackBerry Enterprise Server if you want to use the system resources on the computer to distribute the performance load.

You cannot change a primary BlackBerry Enterprise Server to a standby BlackBerry Enterprise Server by running the setup application again.

By default, the standby BlackBerry Enterprise Server enables you to fail over the following components if they stop responding on the primary BlackBerry Enterprise Server:

• BlackBerry Attachment Service

• BlackBerry Collaboration Service

• BlackBerry Dispatcher

• BlackBerry MDS Connection Service

• BlackBerry Messaging Agent

• BlackBerry Policy Service

• BlackBerry Router

• BlackBerry Synchronization Service

After you complete the installation process, the setup application does not start all the services for the standby BlackBerry

Enterprise Server components. For example, the setup application does not start the BlackBerry Mail Store Service,

BlackBerry Synchronization Service, or BlackBerry Policy Service. The failover process starts the services when the standby BlackBerry Enterprise Server promotes itself.

For more information about high availability in a large-scale environment, see the BlackBerry Enterprise Server Planning

Guide.

Installation and Configuration Guide Installing a standby BlackBerry Enterprise Server

Install a standby BlackBerry Enterprise

Server

Before you begin:

• Install a primary BlackBerry Enterprise Server.

• If you configured database mirroring for the BlackBerry Configuration Database, you must verify that the primary

BlackBerry Enterprise Server is connected to the principal database before you run the setup application.

• Verify that the BlackBerry Administration Service is running on a Windows account that has permission to access and change the Windows registry on the computer that you want to install the standby BlackBerry Enterprise Server on.

1.

Log in to the computer using the Windows account that you used to install the primary BlackBerry Enterprise Server.

This account runs the services for the standby BlackBerry Enterprise Server.

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.

The following table describes the Microsoft SQL Server permissions for the setup application and the Windows account that the BlackBerry Enterprise Server uses to run.

Server and database roles Description db_owner rim_db_bes_server

The setup application requires this role to upgrade the BlackBerry Configuration Database.

This role is the default permission in Microsoft SQL Server for running the BlackBerry

Enterprise Server.

The setup application or the createDB executable creates the role automatically when it creates the BlackBerry Configuration Database.
