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.

Upgrade Guide Planning a BlackBerry Enterprise Server upgrade

Planning a BlackBerry Enterprise Server upgrade

2

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

8

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:

• 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 process.

30

Upgrade Guide 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 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 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 Microsoft SQL Server authentication, you must assign the database creator (dbcreator server role) Microsoft SQL

31

Upgrade Guide Resolving IT policy and application control policy conflicts in a mixed version environment

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 Enterprise Server databases 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 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.

32

Upgrade Guide 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.

Migrate data from the BlackBerry MDS Integration Service discovery database to the

BlackBerry MDS Integration Service database

1.

Open the Microsoft® SQL Server® console.

2.

Generate scripts for the following tables in the BlackBerry® MDS Integration Service discovery database:

• REGISTRY_APP

• REGISTRY_APP_LOCALE

• REGISTRY_APP_KEYWORD

• REGISTRY_APP_DEPEND

3.

To create the tables in the BlackBerry MDS Integration Service database, execute the generated scripts against the

BlackBerry MDS Integration Service database.

4.

Export data from the tables that are listed in step 2.

5.

Import the data into the BlackBerry MDS Integration Service database.

After you finish: To migrate user accounts to the BlackBerry MDS Integration Service pool after you complete the upgrade process, use the BlackBerry Administration Service to update the BlackBerry® Enterprise Server to use the new BlackBerry MDS

Integration Service pool.

Install the SNMP service for monitoring by the BlackBerry Monitoring Service

If you want to install the BlackBerry® Monitoring Service on a computer in the BlackBerry Domain, you must install the SNMP service on each computer that you want to install the BlackBerry® Enterprise Server on so that the BlackBerry Monitoring Service can monitor the BlackBerry Enterprise Server activity.

Before you begin: Verify that each computer can access the Windows® installation media.

1.

On the taskbar, click Start > Settings > Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs > Add/Remove Windows Components.

2.

Double-click Management and Monitoring Tools.

3.

Select the Simple Network Management Protocol check box.

4.

Click OK.

5.

When Windows Setup prompts you, install the files from the Windows installation media.

35

Upgrade Guide Creating a BlackBerry Administration Service pool using DNS round robin that includes the BlackBerry Web Desktop Manager

6.

Complete the installation wizard.

7.

In the Windows Services, verify that the SNMP service is running.

After you finish: To complete the SNMP service installation process, after you install the BlackBerry Enterprise Server or

BlackBerry Enterprise Server components, configure the SNMP service to monitor the activity of the BlackBerry Enterprise Server or BlackBerry Enterprise Server components.

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.

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 or BlackBerry MDS Integration Service instance to.

3.

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.

4.

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.

Upgrade Guide Upgrading the BlackBerry Enterprise Server software by using the in-place upgrade process

Upgrading the BlackBerry Enterprise Server software by using the in-place upgrade process

6

Using the in-place upgrade process, you can upgrade the BlackBerry® Enterprise Server software by replacing the existing version and upgrading the BlackBerry Configuration Database.

You can use the in-place upgrade process if your organization's environment includes a standalone BlackBerry Enterprise Server instance.

When you use the in-place upgrade process, all BlackBerry devices receive new IT policies. BlackBerry devices that are running

BlackBerry® Device Software version 4.1 or later receive new service books and data synchronization occurs over the wireless network.

Avantages of this upgrade process include:

• You do not require an extra computer to perform this upgrade.

• When the upgrade process completes, user accounts are active and no additional administrative action is required.

Disadvantages of this upgrade process include:

• After you upgrade the BlackBerry Enterprise Server, you cannot return to an earlier version of the software automatically.

• You must turn off the BlackBerry Enterprise Server during the upgrade process. The interruption to services for BlackBerry devices lasts for as long as it takes the upgrade process to complete.

Upgrade the BlackBerry Enterprise Server software by overwriting the existing version and use the existing BlackBerry Configuration Database

The in-place upgrade process requires that you restart the computer.

During the BlackBerry® Enterprise Server installation process, you must restart the computer.

Before you begin:

• Instruct your organization's administrators to stop managing the BlackBerry Enterprise Server using the BlackBerry Manager or administration clients that use the BlackBerry® Enterprise Server Resource Kit.

• If a remote Microsoft® SQL Server® hosts the BlackBerry Configuration Database, upgrade the BlackBerry database notification system.

1.

Log in to the computer using the Windows® account that the BlackBerry Enterprise Server services run on.

2.

In the BlackBerry Enterprise Server installation files, double-click setup.exe.

3.

In the Setup type dialog box, select Use an existing BlackBerry Configuration Database.

Log in to the computer using the same account that you used in step 1.

10. In the Application extensibility settings dialog box, consider the following information:

• You can type an FQDN to create a new BlackBerry MDS Integration Service pool.

• To configure a hardware load-balancer for the BlackBerry MDS Integration Service pool, you can type an FQDN that corresponds to a DNS record in the DNS server that maps the FQDN to the IP address of the virtual server that you configured on the hardware load-balancer.

• If you choose to create a new BlackBerry MDS Integration Service database, the setup application creates the BlackBerry

MDS Integration Service database on the same database server as the BlackBerry Configuration Database.

11.

If you upgrade from the BlackBerry Collaboration Service for use with Windows® Messenger, in the Instant messaging settings dialog box, type the Microsoft® Office Live Communications Server 2005 address.

12. In the Administration settings dialog box, perform the following actions:

• In the Pool name field, type an FQDN that the setup application can use to create the BlackBerry Administration Service web address. If you install only one BlackBerry Administration Service instance in the BlackBerry Domain, you can accept the default pool name. If you install more than one BlackBerry Administration Service instance in the BlackBerry Domain, you must create a DNS entry for the pool name that is not the name of a computer and is mapped to the IP address of each BlackBerry Administration Service instance.

43

Upgrade Guide Upgrade the BlackBerry Enterprise Server software by overwriting the existing version and use the existing BlackBerry Configuration

Database

• In the New password and Confirm password fields, type the password for the SSL certificate that the BlackBerry

Administration Service uses to authenticate with browsers. You must use the same password for every BlackBerry

Administration Service instance in the BlackBerry Domain.

13. In the Microsoft® Active Directory® settings dialog box, in the User password field, type the password for the Microsoft

Active Directory account (for example, BESAdmin) that the BlackBerry Enterprise Server uses to authenticate to Microsoft

Active Directory. If you want to specify a different user name and user domain, you must make sure that the user domain belongs to the same Microsoft Active Directory forest as the Microsoft Exchange organization.

If the setup application cannot locate any of the global catalog servers that are associated with the Microsoft Active Directory account after you click the Next button, you must choose the global catalog servers that you want to add to the list manually.

To add a global catalog server to the list, click the Add button and select the appropriate server. Each global catalog server that you add to the list must belong to the same domain as the Microsoft Active Directory user account.

14. Start the services for the BlackBerry Enterprise Server. If you installed the BlackBerry Administration Service, the setup application waits until the BlackBerry Administration Service services are running before the setup application continues.

15. In the Console addresses dialog box, copy the web addresses for the BlackBerry Enterprise Server components and paste them into a document for future reference. You can use the web addresses to log in to the BlackBerry Enterprise Server components that you installed.

After you finish:

• If you configured the BlackBerry Administration Service instances in the pool to communicate across network subnets with

TCP before you upgraded BlackBerry Enterprise Server components, you must restore the configuration files. For more information, visit www.blackberry.com/support to read article KB19654.

• As required, add the name of the BlackBerry MDS Integration Service pool to the DNS server and change the name of the computer.

Specifying a name for the BlackBerry Administration Service pool during the installation process

During the installation process, the setup application prompts you to specify the name of the BlackBerry® Administration Service pool.

The BlackBerry Administration Service instances use the pool name for interprocess communication and when you configure

BlackBerry Administration Service high availability using DNS round robin. You must specify a valid DNS host name during the installation process, even if you do not configure BlackBerry Administration Service high availability using DNS round robin.

The setup application uses the FQDN of the computer that you install the first BlackBerry Administration Service instance on as the default value for the pool name. If you keep the default value and configure BlackBerry Administration Service high availability using DNS round robin at a later time, you must use the BlackBerry Configuration Panel to change the pool name to the host name for the pool.

The name for the BlackBerry Administration Service pool does not impact BlackBerry Administration Service high availability that uses a hardware load balancer.

44

Upgrade Guide Upgrade the BlackBerry Enterprise Server instances that you configured for disaster recovery

For more information about BlackBerry Administration Service high availability, see the BlackBerry Enterprise Server Planning

Guide.

Upgrade the BlackBerry Enterprise Server instances that you configured for disaster recovery

If you configured the BlackBerry® Enterprise Server instances in your organization's environment for disaster recovery, you configured two BlackBerry Enterprise Server instances that use the same SRP address. You can upgrade the BlackBerry Enterprise

Server instances to the latest BlackBerry Enterprise Server version and configure high availability so that the BlackBerry Enterprise

Server instances can fail over automatically.

1.

Upgrade the standby BlackBerry Enterprise Server using the in-place upgrade process. During the upgrade process, do not verify the SRP credentials or start the BlackBerry Enterprise Server services so that you do not deactivate the SRP credentials.

2.

Stop BlackBerry Enterprise Server version 4.1 so that you can start a manual failover process.

3.

Start the latest BlackBerry Enterprise Server version so that it becomes the primary instance.

4.

Verify that users can send and receive messages on their BlackBerry devices.

5.

Upgrade the earlier BlackBerry Enterprise Server version using the in-place upgrade process. During the upgrade process, specify that this BlackBerry Enterprise Server instance is a standby BlackBerry Enterprise Server, and associate it with the

BlackBerry Enterprise Server instance that you upgraded in step 1.

6.

Using the BlackBerry Administration Service, fail over to the BlackBerry Enterprise Server manually that you want to use as the primary instance.

7.

Configure the automatic failover feature.

Administration Service under Additional Components.

• To install the BlackBerry Administration Service by itself, select Remote component and BlackBerry Administration

Service.

8.

When the setup application prompts you to restart the computer, click Yes.

9.

Log in to the computer using the same account that you used in step 1.

10. In the CAL and SRP Information dialog box, type the SRP credentials that the BlackBerry Enterprise Server that you are replacing uses.

11.

In the Application extensibility settings dialog box, consider the following information:

• You can type a FQDN to create a new BlackBerry MDS Integration Service pool.

• To configure a hardware load-balancer for the BlackBerry MDS Integration Service pool, you can type a FQDN that corresponds to a DNS record in the DNS server that maps the FQDN to the IP address of the virtual server that you configured on the hardware load-balancer.

• You can create a new BlackBerry MDS Integration Service database or upgrade the existing BlackBerry MDS Integration

Service database.

• If you choose to create a new BlackBerry MDS Integration Service database, the setup application creates the BlackBerry

MDS Integration Service database on the database server that the BlackBerry Configuration Database is located on.

12. If you upgrade from the BlackBerry Collaboration Service for use with Windows® Messenger, in the Instant messaging settings dialog box, type the Microsoft® Office Live Communications Server 2005 address.

13. In the Administration settings dialog box, perform the following actions:

• In the Pool name field, type an FQDN that the setup application can use to create the BlackBerry Administration Service web address. If you install only one BlackBerry Administration Service instance in the BlackBerry Domain, you can accept the default pool name. If you install more than one BlackBerry Administration Service instance in the BlackBerry Domain, you must create a DNS entry for the pool name that is not the name of a computer and is mapped to the IP address of each BlackBerry Administration Service instance.

• In the New password and Confirm password fields, type the password for the SSL certificate that the BlackBerry

Administration Service uses to authenticate with browsers. You must use the same password for every BlackBerry

Administration Service instance in the BlackBerry Domain.

14. In the Microsoft® Active Directory® settings dialog box, in the User password field, type the password for the Microsoft

Active Directory account (for example, BESAdmin) that the BlackBerry Enterprise Server uses to authenticate to Microsoft

Active Directory. If you want to specify a different user name and user domain, you must make sure that the user domain belongs to the same Microsoft Active Directory forest as the Microsoft Exchange organization.

If the setup application cannot locate any of the global catalog servers that are associated with the Microsoft Active Directory account after you click the Next button, you must choose the global catalog servers that you want to add to the list manually.

To add a global catalog server to the list, click the Add button and select the appropriate server. Each global catalog server that you add to the list must belong to the same domain as the Microsoft Active Directory user account.

15. If you use the SRP credentials of an existing BlackBerry Enterprise Server in the BlackBerry Domain, do not start the

BlackBerry Enterprise Server services.

Upgrade Guide Move user accounts to a new BlackBerry Enterprise Server using the BlackBerry Administration Service

16. In the Console addresses dialog box, copy the web addresses for the BlackBerry Enterprise Server components and paste them into a document for future reference. You can use the web addresses to log in to the BlackBerry Enterprise Server components that you installed.

After you finish:

• If you configured the BlackBerry Administration Service instances in the pool to communicate across network subnets with

TCP before you upgraded BlackBerry Enterprise Server components, you must restore the configuration files. For more information, visit www.blackberry.com/support to read article KB19654.

• As required, add the name of the BlackBerry MDS Integration Service pool to the DNS server and change the name of the computer.

Specifying a name for the BlackBerry Administration Service pool during the installation process

During the installation process, the setup application prompts you to specify the name of the BlackBerry® Administration Service pool.

The BlackBerry Administration Service instances use the pool name for interprocess communication and when you configure

BlackBerry Administration Service high availability using DNS round robin. You must specify a valid DNS host name during the installation process, even if you do not configure BlackBerry Administration Service high availability using DNS round robin.

The setup application uses the FQDN of the computer that you install the first BlackBerry Administration Service instance on as the default value for the pool name. If you keep the default value and configure BlackBerry Administration Service high availability using DNS round robin at a later time, you must use the BlackBerry Configuration Panel to change the pool name to the host name for the pool.

The name for the BlackBerry Administration Service pool does not impact BlackBerry Administration Service high availability that uses a hardware load balancer.

For more information about BlackBerry Administration Service high availability, see the BlackBerry Enterprise Server Planning

Guide.

Move user accounts to a new BlackBerry Enterprise Server using the

BlackBerry Administration Service

To complete the cutover upgrade process, you must move user accounts to the new BlackBerry® Enterprise Server. After you move the user accounts to the current BlackBerry Enterprise Server, the BlackBerry Enterprise Server sends new service books to the BlackBerry devices automatically.

Configuration Database

8

Using the cutover upgrade process, you can install the BlackBerry® Enterprise Server on a new computer and move user accounts and server information from the previous BlackBerry Enterprise Server to the new one.

You can use the cutover upgrade process to create a new BlackBerry Configuration Database and BlackBerry Domain. If you create a new BlackBerry Configuration Database, you require SRP credentials for the new BlackBerry Enterprise Server. You can move user accounts from the previous BlackBerry Configuration Database to the new BlackBerry Configuration Database using the BlackBerry Enterprise Transporter.

When you use the cutover upgrade process, all BlackBerry devices receive new IT policies. BlackBerry devices that are running

BlackBerry® Device Software version 4.1 or later receive new service books and wireless data synchronization occurs.

Advantages of this upgrade process include:

• You can move user accounts back to the previous BlackBerry Enterprise Server if you experience any issues with the new one.

• You can upgrade server hardware.

• Users experience minimal service interruptions because user accounts remain active on the previous BlackBerry Enterprise

Server until you start the new one.

Disadvantages of this upgrade process include:

• You require an extra computer.

• The BlackBerry Enterprise Server sends new service books to all of the BlackBerry devices that are capable of synchronizing data over the wireless network.

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.

Upgrading the BlackBerry Enterprise Server software in phases

9

If you use the phased upgrade process, you can maintain previous versions of the BlackBerry® Enterprise Server software, install additional BlackBerry Enterprise Server instances over time, and move user accounts to the latest BlackBerry Enterprise Server versions.

When you use the phased upgrade process, all BlackBerry devices receive new IT policies. Devices that are running BlackBerry®

Device Software version 4.0 or later receive new service books and wireless data synchronization occurs.

The BlackBerry Configuration Database and all BlackBerry Administration Service instances in the BlackBerry Domain must be the same version. Before you upgrade the BlackBerry Configuration Database, you must stop the BlackBerry Administration

Service services that run on all other computers in the BlackBerry Domain until you upgrade the computers.

Advantages of the phased upgrade process include:

• 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 devices at the same time.

• You can monitor system performance while 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 device options that you backed up in the BlackBerry Configuration Database.

• You cannot use some new features (for example, one-to-many relationships between a BlackBerry MDS Connection Service or BlackBerry Collaboration Service and multiple BlackBerry Enterprise Server instances) in the BlackBerry Enterprise Server until all BlackBerry Enterprise Server components are the same version.

Upgrade multiple BlackBerry Enterprise Server instances in phases

You can upgrade the BlackBerry® Enterprise Server instances in your organization's environment in phases to minimize the impact on users.

Before you begin: If you want to create a new BlackBerry Configuration Database, instruct users to back up their BlackBerry devices. Any BlackBerry device options that are stored in the existing BlackBerry Configuration Database are deleted when you add user accounts to the new BlackBerry Configuration Database.

1.

Install the latest BlackBerry Enterprise Server version with the BlackBerry Administration Service on a separate computer.

Resend the database mirroring parameters to BlackBerry Enterprise Server components

If the computers that host BlackBerry® Enterprise Server components were not running or connected to the network when you configured the BlackBerry® Enterprise Solution to support database mirroring, or if you do not know if all of the components were configured to support database mirroring, you should resend the database mirroring parameters to the components. When you resend the database mirroring parameters, the BlackBerry Administration Service adds a registry key to the computers that host the components. The registry key includes the name of the Microsoft® SQL Server® that hosts the mirror database.

CAUTION: If you resend the database mirroring parameters more than once but you do not restart the BlackBerry Enterprise

Server services or the computers that host the BlackBerry Enterprise Server components that the BlackBerry Administration

Service specifies as Updated, you should restart the BlackBerry Enterprise Server services or restart the computers for all of the

BlackBerry Enterprise Server components.

Before you begin: The database server that hosts the mirror database must be running.

1.

In the BlackBerry Administration Service, on the Servers and components menu, go to BlackBerry Solution Topology >

BlackBerry Domain.

2.

Click Resend database mirroring parameters.

3.

On the computers that host the BlackBerry Enterprise Server components that are specified as Updated in the Server responses to mirroring data update table, restart the BlackBerry Enterprise Server services or restart the computers that host the components.

4.

Please save the data again to attempt to update this server, verify that the computers are running and connected to the network and then resend the database mirroring parameters to the BlackBerry Enterprise Server components.

Restore the BlackBerry MDS Connection Service configuration files

You can use the BlackBerry® MDS Connection Service configuration files, MdsLogin.conf and krb5.conf, to configure how the

BlackBerry MDS Connection Service authenticates BlackBerry devices with content servers that use NTLM or Kerberos™. The

BlackBerry MDS Connection Service configuration files are located in <drive>:\Program Files\Research In Motion\BlackBerry

Enterprise Server\MDS\Servers\Instance\config.

When you upgrade a BlackBerry® Enterprise Server, the setup application creates new MdsLogin.conf or krb5.conf files and creates backup versions of the old BlackBerry MDS Connection Service configuration files in the same location. If you changed the MdsLogin.conf or krb5.conf files before you perform the upgrade, you should restore the backup versions of the files so that the BlackBerry MDS Connection Service can authenticate BlackBerry devices with the content servers that use NTLM or Kerberos.

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.

66

Upgrade Guide Configuring support for new attachments

• 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.

Configuring support for new attachments

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

files.

1.

7.

Click Save all.

Configure an upgraded BlackBerry Attachment Service to support new attachment distillers

During the upgrade process for a BlackBerry® Attachment Service instance, the setup application does not turn on the new attachment distillers automatically. If you want the BlackBerry Attachment Service to process new attachments, you must turn on the attachment distillers for these file formats. The following 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, .ods, and .odp files.

1.

In the BlackBerry Administration Service, on the Servers and components menu, expand BlackBerry Solution topology

> BlackBerry Domain > Component view > Attachment > Server.

2.

6.

Click Save.

Assigning an IT policy to a group

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.

Remove an IT policy from a user account

Before you begin: Assign an IT policy to a group that includes the user account.

1.

In the BlackBerry® Administration Service, on the BlackBerry solution management menu, expand User.

2.

Click Manage users.

3.

Search for the user account.

4.

7.

Click Save all.

After you finish: Resend the IT policy to the user account.

Restrict database permissions for the BlackBerry Attachment Service

The BlackBerry® Attachment Service accesses the BlackBerry Configuration Database to read attachment data using a Windows® account or a SQL authentication account. To limit the access that the BlackBerry Attachment Service account has to the tables in the BlackBerry Configuration Database, you can configure a BlackBerry Attachment Service account that has limited database permissions. This account is not the same as the account that the BlackBerry® Enterprise Server uses to access the BlackBerry

Configuration Database.

Before you begin:

• Create a Windows® account for the BlackBerry Attachment Service.

• To use database authentication, create a SQL authentication account for the BlackBerry Attachment Service.

68

Upgrade Guide Configuring minimum Microsoft SQL Server permissions for the Windows account

After you finish: After you complete the BlackBerry Attachment Service installation process, in the Windows Services, verify that the service for the BlackBerry Attachment Service is using the Windows account that you configured. If you need to change the account information, restart the BlackBerry Attachment Service.

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.
