Feature
Description
automatic discovery of Microsoft®
Exchange Web Services
The BlackBerry® Messaging Agent can discover Microsoft Exchange Web Services
automatically and use it to connect to the messaging server when the BlackBerry
Messaging Agent synchronizes calendar entries.
BlackBerry Configuration Panel logging When you use the BlackBerry Configuration Panel to configure high availability or
change Microsoft® Active Directory® account information, the BlackBerry
Configuration Panel writes the following information to its log file:
•
•
name of the Windows® account that you use to log in to the computer
date and time
By default, the BlackBerry Configuration Panel stores its log file in the C:\Program
Files\Research In Motion\BlackBerry Enterprise Server\Logs\Installer folder.
BlackBerry MDS Connection Service
integrated authentication
When BlackBerry device users want to access your organization's resources from
BlackBerry devices, you can configure the BlackBerry MDS Connection Service to
authenticate users with your organization's network automatically using their
Windows accounts.
changes to the BlackBerry
Configuration Database schema
The changes to the BlackBerry Configuration Database schema for BlackBerry®
Enterprise Server 5.0 SP2 are summarized in the UpgradeV99990101.sql file in the
installation folder.
default groups with preconfigured roles The BlackBerry Administration Service includes new default groups that have
preconfigured roles and that you can add different types of administrator accounts
to. The default groups help make sure that users without administrative privileges
cannot escalate their permissions. For example, junior administrators cannot
change their roles to senior administrator roles. The group names are
Administrators, Help desk representatives, and BlackBerry® Web Desktop Manager
users.
For more information about upgrade implications, see the BlackBerry Enterprise
Server Upgrade Guide.

•
event 20634 and event 20489 at the information logging level rather than
the warning logging level
•
additional information when the LogReceiver of the BlackBerry Controller
cannot bind to a socket
enhancements to S/MIME encryption
The BlackBerry Enterprise Server includes the following enhancements to S/MIME
encryption:
•
If users configure S/MIME encryption on devices, you are no longer required
to turn on S/MIME encryption on the BlackBerry Enterprise Server before the
BlackBerry Enterprise Server can process S/MIME-protected messages.
•
The BlackBerry Enterprise Server includes improvements to the option that
permits it to encrypt messages for a second time when it processes S/MIMEprotected messages that are weakly encrypted or are signed but not encrypted.
enhancements to SRP connections
When you install a BlackBerry Enterprise Server or start the BlackBerry Dispatcher,
the BlackBerry Enterprise Server verifies whether the SRP ID is currently in use by
another BlackBerry Enterprise Server. If it is in use, the BlackBerry Enterprise Server
does not open the SRP connection.

or replied to the email message from a device, the email address of the delegate was shown in the From field of the original
email message. (DT 403560)
Paraguay Standard Time, Kamchatka Standard Time, and UTC time zones were not supported and resulted in errors logged
by the BlackBerry Messaging Agent when running on Windows Server® 2008. (DT 358985)
When the BlackBerry Enterprise Server sent a new key to a device, or a device was reactivated, the Activation status did not
update correctly in the BlackBerry Administration Service. (DT 356607)

BlackBerry Web Desktop Manager known issues
When a user uses BlackBerry® Web Desktop Manager to switch to another device, when BlackBerry Web Desktop Manager
requests that the user connects their old device to back up their data but the user does not connect the old device, the user
can still continue with the switch device process. As a result, BlackBerry Web Desktop Manager tries to back up the data that
is on the new device and activates the new device even though it has not restored the data from the old device. (DT 605246)
If a user tries to back up the BlackBerry device, in certain circumstances, the BlackBerry® Device Manager might stop
responding. (DT 566840, SDR 340985)

the email address of the device user, if the user is not active on the BlackBerry Enterprise Server. (DT 625187)
If you specify a deletion date for static agent logs in the MAGT log, the search criteria used to remove old log files only searches
for log files with an instance number of two digits but the static agent IDs have an instance numbers of three digits. Therefore
the search is not successful and the static agent logs are not deleted. (DT 606891)
The setting that you configure for Debug Log Maximum Daily File Age in the BlackBerry Administration Service does not
affect static agent logs in the MAGT log. You must manually delete the static agent logs in the MAGT log. (DT 606849)
When the BlackBerry Enterprise Server processes SMS text messages that are in Unicode, the BlackBerry Enterprise Server

If you uninstall BlackBerry Enterprise Server 4.1 and install BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0 on the same computer, the setup
application finds software and registry keys for BlackBerry Enterprise Server 4.1 when it performs the BlackBerry Policy Service
configuration validations and does not allow the upgrade process to proceed. (DT 427051)
Workaround: Reinstall BlackBerry Enterprise Server 4.1 SP6 and then upgrade to BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0.
When you reinstall a BlackBerry Collaboration Service, the setup application does not detect Microsoft® Office Communications
Server 2007. (DT 426915)
You cannot run a BlackBerry Enterprise Server pair with different instant messaging servers configured for the primary and
standby, but the setup application allows you to install the BlackBerry Enterprise Server instances with different instant
messaging servers. (DT 426882, SDR 280876)
When you install the BlackBerry Enterprise Server, the setup application installs the desktop_bluetooth.dll file, which is not
supported by Windows Server® 2003 and later and might cause Windows errors. (DT 400829)
Workaround: If the Windows error states that the irprops.cpl file is missing, copy the irprops.cpl file from the Windows
installation files to the WINNT/System32 folder.
The setup application cannot successfully install the Microsoft® SQL Server® 2005 Express Edition on a computer that runs
Windows Server 2008 64-bit. (DT 395794)
Workaround: Install the Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Express Edition.
The setup application does not display an error message if there is a mismatch between ports selected by the Microsoft SQL
Server and BlackBerry Enterprise Server. (DT 391897)
If you choose the database mirroring option during the installation process and the principal BlackBerry Configuration
Database is not available, the setup application stops at the BlackBerry Montiroing Service dialog box and writes error
messages to the log file. (DT 390871)
When the setup application backs up the krb5.conf file, MdsLogin.conf file, and rimpublic.property file, it does not create unique
file names for the backed up file and might overwrite previous backed up files. (DT 376496)
The setup application does not provide a notification that the Terminal Service Application mode is installed and that you
cannot install the BlackBerry Enterprise Server. (DT 364214)
On certain dialog boxes in the setup application (for example, the Administration Settings dialog box), the setup application
highlights Back as the default button rather than Next. (DT 330239)

Release Notes
When the setup application tries to install Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express Edition on a computer that hosts an MSDE that
includes an MSDE instance named "BlackBerry", the setup application stops responding. (DT 315437)
During the installation process, if you choose to install the BlackBerry Enterprise Server in a non-default location, the setup
application cannot create the key store for the BlackBerry MDS Integration Service. (DT 313541)
Workaround:
1.
Close the setup application.
2.
Create the C:\Program Files\Research In Motion\BlackBerry Enterprise Server\MDS\webserver path.
3.
Restart the setup application.
In certain circumstances, if you install, uninstall, and then reinstall the BlackBerry Enterprise Server and BlackBerry MDS
Integration Service, the setup application does not permit you to join an existing BlackBerry MDS Integration Service pool,
and the only pool name it accepts is the name of the existing BlackBerry MDS Integration Service pool. (DT 300857)
If you upgrade a remote BlackBerry Monitoring Service from version 5.0 to 5.0 SP1, the URL of the BlackBerry® Web Desktop
Manager in the last dialog box of the setup application contains the NetBIOS name instead of the FQDN. (DT 296369)
If you install a standalone BlackBerry Router and do not connect to the BlackBerry Configuration Database, the setup
application displays an empty Console addresses dialog box. (DT 263430)
In the setup application, in the Database options screen, the name for the Use a Microsoft® SQL Server® database option
should be Use an existing Microsoft SQL Server to host my database. (DT 233462)
The default for the DebugLogMaxDailyFileAge logging registry key is 14 and therefore the MAST logs are automatically deleted
after 14 days. This does not match the default of 0 for the other logging registry keys. (DT 231153)
Workaround: You can manually update the setting in the registry to 0.
The BlackBerry Collaboration Service does not start after you change the database for a BlackBerry Enterprise Server. (DT
126765)

SNMP known issues
When you fail over the BlackBerry® Configuration Database manually after you configure the BlackBerry® Enterprise Server
to support database mirroring, the BlackBerry Enterprise Server does not update the
imDatabaseConnConfigPropertyconnParams, imDatabaseConnBaseConfigPropertyendB,
mdscsDatabaseConnConfigPropertyconnParams, and mdscsDatabaseConnBaseConfigPropertyendB SNMP values. (DT
479075, DT 479074, DT 479073, DT 479070)
