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 the computer that hosts the BlackBerry
Administration Service. You can use the BlackBerry Administration Service to manage a BlackBerry Domain, which consists of
one or more BlackBerry Enterprise Server instances and remote components 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
You can upgrade the following BlackBerry® Enterprise Server versions to the latest BlackBerry Enterprise Server version:
•
BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0 or later
•
BlackBerry Enterprise Server 4.1 SP3 or later
•
BlackBerry Enterprise Server 4.0 SP7 if there is only one BlackBerry Enterprise Server instance in your organization's
BlackBerry Domain. If there is more than one BlackBerry Enterprise Server instance in your organization's BlackBerry Domain,
you must upgrade to BlackBerry Enterprise Server 4.1 SP3 or later before upgrading to the latest version.
If your organization has a BlackBerry Enterprise Server version that is not listed, you must first upgrade to one of the supported
BlackBerry Enterprise Server versions.
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 the BlackBerry® Enterprise Server to the latest version, you must also upgrade the BlackBerry Configuration
Database to the latest version. To upgrade the BlackBerry Configuration Database, you can use the setup application to install
or upgrade BlackBerry Enterprise Server components. The installation or upgrade process upgrades the BlackBerry Configuration
Database automatically so that the database and components run the same version. If you do not want to use the setup application
to upgrade the BlackBerry Configuration Database, you can run the database upgrade scripts on the database server.
You cannot manage the BlackBerry Enterprise Server until you install the BlackBerry Administration Service version that is the
same as the BlackBerry Configuration Database version or upgrade the BlackBerry Administration Service so that it is the same
version as the BlackBerry Configuration Database.
You might want to move an MSDE database such as a BlackBerry Configuration Database from MSDE to a version of Microsoft®
SQL Server® that Microsoft fully supports. To upgrade a BlackBerry Configuration Database and move it from MSDE to Microsoft
SQL Server, you should create a copy of the BlackBerry Configuration Database, move the copy to Microsoft SQL Server, and
then upgrade the BlackBerry Configuration Database on the Microsoft SQL Server to the latest version.
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.
Upgrade applications for service packs
You can install or upgrade the BlackBerry Enterprise Server, including service packs, by running the setup application. You can
also upgrade the BlackBerry Enterprise Server to a service pack by running the upgrade application for service packs, which is
available for download from www.blackberry.com/support.
For BlackBerry Enterprise Server versions that are earlier than version 5.0 SP2, you cannot use the upgrade application for service
packs to perform a full installation of the BlackBerry Enterprise Server. For example, if you use the setup application to install
BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0 one one computer and then you use the upgrade application for service packs to upgrade to
BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0 SP1, and you want to install BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0 SP1 on a second computer in the
BlackBerry Domain, you must perform one of the following tasks:
•
•
8
on the second computer, install BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0 and then run the upgrade application for service packs
contact BlackBerry Technical Support Services to download the setup application for BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0 SP1
and then run the setup application on the second computer
Upgrade Guide
Upgrade applications for service packs
For BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0 SP2, you can use the upgrade application for service packs to perform a full installation of
the BlackBerry Enterprise Server in a BlackBerry Domain that includes BlackBerry Configuration Database 5.0 or later. If you
used the setup application to install any version of the BlackBerry Enterprise Server from 4.1 SP3 to 5.0 SP1, you can use the
upgrade application for service packs for BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0 SP2 to perform any of the following tasks:
•
•
•
upgrade the BlackBerry Enterprise Server to version 5.0 SP2
install a BlackBerry Enterprise Server on a second computer in the BlackBerry Domain
install BlackBerry Enterprise Server components on multiple computers in the BlackBerry Domain
You can also use the upgrade application for service packs for BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0 SP2 to perform an in-place
upgrade of BlackBerry Enterprise Server 4.1 SP3 or later.

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 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. 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 their
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 their databases using the
Windows account that you use to complete the installation process or the database credentials you provided during the installation

Configuring connections for the BlackBerry Enterprise Server databases
To support database mirroring for the the BlackBerry Configuration Database or BlackBerry MDS Integration Service database
with Microsoft SQL Server 2005 or Microsoft SQL Server 2008, you must use Windows authentication. The BlackBerry Monitoring
Service does not support database mirroring.
Specifying permissions when you connect to the BlackBerry Enterprise Server databases
using Windows authentication or Microsoft SQL Server authentication
If you connect the BlackBerry® Enterprise Server, BlackBerry MDS Integration Service, and BlackBerry Monitoring Service to the
BlackBerry Enterprise Server databases 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 Enterprise Server databases on the computer that hosts the BlackBerry
Enterprise Server components or on another database server.
Specifying permissions for the Windows account or Microsoft SQL Server account
If you install Microsoft® SQL Server® 2005 Express 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® Enterprise Server databases 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

• If you create the BlackBerry Enterprise Server databases 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.
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.
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.

Backing up the BlackBerry Enterprise Server databases
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.

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.
34
Upgrade Guide
Install the SNMP service for monitoring by the BlackBerry Monitoring Service
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.

Creating a BlackBerry Administration Service pool using DNS round robin
that includes the BlackBerry Web Desktop Manager
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).
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
36
Upgrade Guide
Create the DNS record for a BlackBerry Administration Service instance or BlackBerry MDS Integration Service instance
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.
•
You must have permission to manage the DNS.
•
If you configure DNS round robin, you must configure clients to resolve the DNS name into a list of IP addresses and
distribute traffic equally across the BlackBerry Administration Service or BlackBerry MDS Integration Service instances in
the pool.

To create a new host, type the following information:
•
In the Name field, type the name of the BlackBerry Administration Service pool or BlackBerry MDS Integration Service
pool that you want to use.
•
In the IP Address1 field, type the IP address of the computer that you want to host a BlackBerry Administration Service
instance or BlackBerry MDS Integration Service instance on.
•
Select the Create associated pointer (PTR) record check box.
Repeat step 3 for each BlackBerry Administration Service instance or BlackBerry MDS Integration 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 or BlackBerry MDS Integration Service instances.
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.

(for example, if email applications cannot display attachment file names or contact lists correctly), you can configure the BlackBerry
Enterprise Server to select another character encoding to use to process Unicode messages.

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.
65
Upgrade Guide
Change applications to support BlackBerry MDS Connection Service failover
•
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.
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. 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.

Configure an upgraded BlackBerry Enterprise Server to support new attachment extensions
When you upgrade a BlackBerry® Enterprise Server instance, the upgrade process does not automatically add the new attachment
extensions that the latest BlackBerry Enterprise Server version supports. You must add the new attachment extensions after the
upgrade process completes so that the BlackBerry Enterprise Server can recognize the new attachment extensions and send
them to a BlackBerry Attachment Service instance for processing. The following list of supported file formats were added to
versions later than BlackBerry Enterprise Server version 4.1 SP3: .amr*, .wma, .pptx, .docx, .xlsx, .odp, .ods, .odt, .ott, .odp, and .ods

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.
