Upgrading to BlackBerry Device Software Version 4.1 and
later
When you upgrade the BlackBerry Enterprise Server you might also want to upgrade the BlackBerry Device
Software so that users can use the BlackBerry Enterprise Server Version 4.1.4 features.
You are not required to upgrade the BlackBerry Device Software. The BlackBerry Enterprise Server Version 4.1.4
supports BlackBerry devices that are running BlackBerry Device Software Version 4.0.x and earlier.
You can upgrade only BlackBerry devices with 32 MB of flash memory to BlackBerry Device Software Version 4.1.
To upgrade the BlackBerry Device Software, you must connect a BlackBerry device to a computer. You cannot
distribute the BlackBerry Device Software over the wireless network. If users’ BlackBerry devices are running
BlackBerry Device Software Version 4.0 or later, wireless synchronization occurs after the BlackBerry Enterprise
Server upgrade completes. Visit www.blackberry.com/knowledgecenterpublic to read article KB-04295 for more
information about which software versions cause an automatic wireless synchronization to occur.

Use the HandheldCleanup tool to locate out-of-date assignments between BlackBerry devices and user
mailboxes. This tool checks for any BlackBerry devices that are assigned to user mailboxes that do not have a
current server domain name. When the tool locates user mailboxes with different server domain names, it changes
the server domain name to the Global Address List server domain name and adds the BlackBerry device to the
report list.
1.
At the command prompt, switch to C:\Program Files\Research In Motion\BlackBerry Enterprise
Server\Utility.
2. Type HandheldCleanup.exe.
3. Type any of the following parameters, in the order in which they appear:

When the BlackBerry Enterprise Server is upgraded, the BlackBerry Synchronization Service sends service books
to those BlackBerry devices that are capable of wireless synchronization automatically.
If you do not perform the following task for BlackBerry devices that are capable of wireless synchronization, the
BlackBerry Enterprise Server cannot update the service books automatically after upgrade, and those BlackBerry
devices cannot send or receive email messages.
>
To ensure wireless synchronization occurs automatically after the upgrade process completes, instruct users
with BlackBerry Device Software Version 4.0 or later to connect their BlackBerry devices to the BlackBerry
Desktop Manager Version 3.6.3 or later before you upgrade the BlackBerry Enterprise Server.
Users must connect their BlackBerry devices to the BlackBerry Desktop Manager. Connecting the BlackBerry
device to a BlackBerry Manager or a Legacy BlackBerry Manager MMC Snap-in will not enable wireless
synchronization to occur automatically.
If you do not support the BlackBerry Desktop Manager in your BlackBerry environment, you must activate
BlackBerry devices over the wireless network to enable wireless synchronization.
Preparing to upgrade from BlackBerry Enterprise Server
Version 3.6
When you upgrade from BlackBerry Enterprise Server Version 3.6.3 or later, you consolidate the BlackBerry
Enterprise Server and user configuration information from earlier database versions. You migrate server state and
user configuration information from the messaging server to the BlackBerry Configuration Database. You replace
earlier implementations of multiple BlackBerry Enterprise Server instances that connect to the messaging server
with multiple BlackBerry Messaging Agents on a single BlackBerry Enterprise Server. Prepare for this upgrade by
cleaning up the data, creating backups, and removing unused instances before upgrading the BlackBerry
Configuration Database.
If you have applications in your BlackBerry environment that connect to the BlackBerry® Mobile Data Service on
custom ports, you must change those applications to connect on standard ports.

BlackBerry Enterprise Server for Microsoft Exchange Upgrade Guide
If you want wireless synchronization to occur automatically after the upgrade process completes, you must also
instruct users to synchronize their BlackBerry device capabilities before you upgrade the BlackBerry Enterprise
Server. See “Synchronize BlackBerry device capabilities” on page 40 for more information

Verify BlackBerry device assignments
Use the HandheldCleanup tool to locate out-of-date assignments between BlackBerry devices and user
mailboxes. This tool checks for any BlackBerry devices that are assigned to user mailboxes that do not have a
current server domain name. When the tool locates user mailboxes with different server domain names, it changes
the server domain name to the Global Address List server domain name and adds the BlackBerry device to the
report list.
1.
At the command prompt, switch to C:\Program Files\Research In Motion\BlackBerry Enterprise
Server\Utility.
2. Type HandheldCleanup.exe.
3. Type any of the following parameters, in the order in which they appear:
Parameter
Procedure
-d [<filename>] [-p <MAPI profile name>]
1.
Type the name of the file in which to save information for each BlackBerry device on the
BlackBerry Enterprise Server.
2. Type the name of the MAPI profile you use to connect to the messaging server.

log files.
1.
Back up the BlackBerry Enterprise Server log files to another computer.
2. Delete the log files from the BlackBerry Enterprise Server computer.
Prepare to consolidate multiple instances of the BlackBerry Enterprise Server
When you upgrade multiple instances of the BlackBerry Enterprise Server, the setup program makes the name of
the primary instance the new BlackBerry Enterprise Server name. After defining this new name, the setup program
migrates all user accounts to this BlackBerry Enterprise Server and then deletes all other service information, files,
and registry settings from the obsolete instances.
At the time of the upgrade, the user’s BlackBerry device continues to function correctly. The user account
association to the old Server Routing Protocol (SRP) identifier is maintained until the BlackBerry device receives
new service books that contain the SRP identifier of the new BlackBerry Enterprise Server. If users have BlackBerry
Device Software Version 4.0 or later, they receive the service books over the wireless network. If users have a
version of the BlackBerry Device Software earlier than 4.0, they receive the service books the next time they
connect their BlackBerry device to the BlackBerry Desktop Manager.
If you have instances of the BlackBerry Enterprise Server installed that have never been added to the BlackBerry
Enterprise Server Management console, you must either add the instances to the BlackBerry Enterprise Server
Management console or remove the instances of the BlackBerry Enterprise Server before you start the upgrade
process. If you have instances of the BlackBerry Enterprise Server installed that are not added to the BlackBerry
Enterprise Server Management console, the BlackBerry Configuration Database upgrade does not complete
successfully.
You can only consolidate multiple instances of the BlackBerry Enterprise Server that connect to the same SRP
address. If you have multiple BlackBerry Enterprise Server instances that connect to different SRP addresses, you
must either edit the instances to use the same SRP address, or you must move the instances and the associated
user accounts to separate computers.

Synchronize BlackBerry device capabilities
When users connect their BlackBerry devices to the BlackBerry Desktop Manager, the BlackBerry Desktop
Manager writes whether the BlackBerry device is capable of wireless synchronization into the user’s mailbox.
When the BlackBerry Enterprise Server is upgraded, the BlackBerry Synchronization Service sends service books
to those BlackBerry devices that are capable of wireless synchronization automatically.
If you do not perform the following task for BlackBerry devices that are capable of wireless synchronization, the
BlackBerry Enterprise Server cannot update the service books automatically after upgrade, and those BlackBerry
devices cannot send or receive email messages.
>
To ensure wireless synchronization occurs automatically after the upgrade process completes, instruct users
with BlackBerry Device Software Version 4.0 or later to connect their BlackBerry devices to the BlackBerry
Desktop Manager Version 3.6.3 or later before you upgrade the BlackBerry Enterprise Server.
Users must connect their BlackBerry devices to the BlackBerry Desktop Manager. Connecting the BlackBerry
device to a BlackBerry Manager or a Legacy BlackBerry Manager MMC Snap-in will not enable wireless
synchronization to occur automatically.
If you do not support the BlackBerry Desktop Manager in your BlackBerry environment, you must activate
BlackBerry devices over the wireless network to enable wireless synchronization.

Setting database permissions
When you run the setup program, the account that you use must have permissions on the database server. The
type of permission depends on the setup type that you choose and whether you are creating the BlackBerry
Configuration Database on the same computer as the BlackBerry Enterprise Server or on a remote database
server.
BlackBerry Enterprise Server for Microsoft Exchange Upgrade Guide
If you create the BlackBerry Configuration Database on the same computer as the BlackBerry Enterprise Server,
you also install a custom event-based notification system that is designed to reduce the number of database
queries made by the BlackBerry Enterprise Server to the BlackBerry Configuration Database. You require a higher
level of permission for this installation because you must register this database notification system.
If you create the BlackBerry Configuration Database on a remote database server, you do not install the database
notification system automatically, so you require a lower level of permission. You can install the database
notification system manually after you complete the setup program.
If you install the BlackBerry MDS Services, you must use a database login instead of a Windows account to create
and access the BlackBerry MDS Services databases. If you are using a database login to create the BlackBerry
Configuration Database, you must use a different login for the BlackBerry MDS Services databases.
The BlackBerry MDS Services store their BlackBerry MDS Service database access credentials in plain text form in
<Installation directory>\BlackBerry MDS Services 4.1.1\jakarta-tomcat-5.5.9\conf\server.xml. To protect the
access credentials in that storage location, you must limit read and write control to that location.
If you install MSDE 2000 during the BlackBerry Enterprise Server installation, you do not need to set additional
permissions. When you select Windows (trusted) authentication during the BlackBerry Enterprise Server
installation, the required permissions are given to the account that you use to run the setup program.

Returning user accounts to their previous BlackBerry Enterprise Server version
You can return user accounts to their previous BlackBerry Enterprise Server version, but you have a limited amount
of time in which to do so.
After users connect their BlackBerry devices to the BlackBerry Desktop Manager and receive their new SRP
routing and service name information, you can no longer migrate their accounts back to a BlackBerry Enterprise
Server Version 3.6. You must remove the user accounts from the BlackBerry Enterprise Server Version 4.1.4, instruct
the users to clear their BlackBerry devices, and then add the accounts to the BlackBerry Enterprise Server at
Version 3.6.
Any updates that you perform to your user accounts in the BlackBerry Manager Version 4.1.4 for MMC—for
example, any user accounts that you add or remove—are not retained when you migrate the user accounts back to
the BlackBerry Enterprise Server Version 3.6.

Upgrading the BlackBerry Enterprise Server
using a phased process
Phased upgrades
Example 1: Upgrade BlackBerry Enterprise Servers at Version 4.0.3 using a phased process
Example 2: Upgrade BlackBerry Enterprise Servers at Version 4.0 and earlier using a phased process
Phased upgrades
You can upgrade your BlackBerry Enterprise Servers to Version 4.1.4 in phases while maintaining BlackBerry
Enterprise Servers at versions earlier than 4.1.4.
When you upgrade your BlackBerry environment gradually, you must use different administrative tools to manage
the different versions of the BlackBerry Enterprise Server. When you upgrade to BlackBerry Enterprise Server
Version 4.1.4 and your environment contains BlackBerry components at Version 4.1.1 and earlier, you must verify
which BlackBerry component version combinations are supported. You must also consider how changes to the
configuration and user access information impact existing versions of the BlackBerry Mobile Data Service
(BlackBerry MDS Connection Service).
Managing a mixed-version environment
The administrative tools that you use to manage a mixed-version environment depend on the versions of the
BlackBerry Enterprise Server that you continue to operate.
You can create a BlackBerry Domain—multiple BlackBerry Enterprise Servers sharing a single BlackBerry
Configuration Database—with BlackBerry Enterprise Servers Version 4.0 and Version 4.1 so that you can move user
accounts easily and limit their service interruption.
After you upgrade the BlackBerry Configuration Database to Version 4.1, you must administer all BlackBerry
Enterprise Servers in that BlackBerry Domain using BlackBerry Manager Version 4.1. You must also use the
BlackBerry Manager Version 4.1 for MMC to perform some administrative tasks on BlackBerry Enterprise Servers
earlier than Version 4.1. See the Managing multiple versions of the BlackBerry Enterprise Server for Microsoft
Exchange in a BlackBerry Domain guide for more information.
BlackBerry Mobile Data Service (BlackBerry MDS Connection Service)
considerations
After you upgrade the BlackBerry Mobile Data Service to Version 4.1 or later, the service name becomes the
BlackBerry MDS Connection Service.
BlackBerry Enterprise Server for Microsoft Exchange Upgrade Guide
In a mixed-version environment that includes BlackBerry Enterprise Server Version 3.6 and earlier and BlackBerry
Enterprise Server Version 4.0 or later, the BlackBerry Mobile Data Service push server must be Version 4.0 or later.
The BlackBerry Enterprise Server Version 3.6 and earlier uses different locations to store the BlackBerry Mobile
Data Service files and uses different tables in the BlackBerry Configuration Database. You can only push
application data to user accounts on a BlackBerry Enterprise Server Version 4.0 or later from a BlackBerry Mobile
Data Service push server at Version 4.0 or later.
In a mixed-version environment that includes BlackBerry Enterprise Server Version 4.1 and earlier, the BlackBerry
MDS Connection Service central push server must be Version 4.1.
BlackBerry Enterprise Server Version 4.1.2 or later considerations
In a mixed-version environment that includes BlackBerry components at Version 4.1.2 or later, the BlackBerry
Manager must not be at a higher version than the BlackBerry Configuration Database.

New features in the BlackBerry Enterprise Server Version 4.1.2 or later—for example, one-to-many relationships

Enterprise Servers—require that all BlackBerry components be at Version 4.1.2 or later. If you are administering a
BlackBerry Enterprise Server Version 4.1.0 or Version 4.1.1 with a BlackBerry Manager Version 4.1.2 or later, these
new features are hidden.
Proxy settings
A BlackBerry Manager Version 4.1.2 or later cannot change proxy settings on a BlackBerry MDS Connection
Service at Version 4.1.0 or Version 4.1.1.
You must re-type the BlackBerry MDS Services proxy settings created on Version 4.1.0 or Version 4.1.1 in the
BlackBerry Manager after you upgrade to Version 4.1.2 or later.
Example 1: Upgrade BlackBerry Enterprise Servers at Version
4.0.3 using a phased process
This example shows how to upgrade a BlackBerry Domain of BlackBerry Enterprise Servers at Version 4.0.3. You
create one new BlackBerry Enterprise Server Version 4.1.4 and use this as the first destination server in a series of
user moves and in-place upgrades.
57
BlackBerry Enterprise Server for Microsoft Exchange Upgrade Guide
Before you upgrade to BlackBerry Enterprise Server Version 4.1.4, make sure that all BlackBerry Enterprise Servers
in your environment that share a BlackBerry Configuration Database are Version 4.0.3 or higher. Certain
components in earlier versions of the BlackBerry Enterprise Server 4.0 are not optimized for use with the
BlackBerry Enterprise Server Version 4.1.4.
When you install the BlackBerry Enterprise Server Version 4.1.4, you specify the existing BlackBerry Configuration
Database so that it upgrades to Version 4.1.4. After you complete the upgrade, you must upgrade any additional
installations of the BlackBerry Manager so that they are at the same version as the BlackBerry Configuration
Database.
When you move user accounts between BlackBerry Enterprise Servers in the same BlackBerry Domain, the
BlackBerry Policy Service sends new service books and IT policies to the affected BlackBerry devices over the
wireless network. You can move user accounts gradually to limit the number of service books and IT policies that
the BlackBerry Policy Service sends at one time.
After you move all user accounts to the new BlackBerry Enterprise Server, you upgrade the empty BlackBerry
Enterprise Server to Version 4.1.4. This BlackBerry Enterprise Server becomes the destination for user accounts
moving from another BlackBerry Enterprise Server Version 4.0.
Continue to move user accounts to BlackBerry Enterprise Server Version 4.1 and upgrade the empty BlackBerry
Enterprise Servers until all BlackBerry Enterprise Servers in the BlackBerry Domain are running Version 4.1.4.

not update immediately in the BlackBerry Manager. It might take several minutes before the BlackBerry Configuration Database
synchronizes the version of the BlackBerry Device Software that displays in the BlackBerry Manager with the version of the BlackBerry
Device Software that is installed on the BlackBerry device.
Sending the BlackBerry Device Software upgrade to user
computers
Use this upgrade option to push the BlackBerry Desktop Software and the BlackBerry Device Software
installation package to the computers of BlackBerry device users and install the software on their computers
automatically using third-party software packaging and distribution programs.

BlackBerry Device Software onto the BlackBerry device.
You can force users to upgrade their BlackBerry Device Software through IT policies. The IT policies define the
