Activation fixed issues
When you tried to activate a BlackBerry® device running BlackBerry® Device Software 5.0 or later with the
synchronization type of the Organizer data folder list to Device to server, the activation process stopped at 11%.
(DT 815305)
After the BlackBerry® Enterprise Server activated a new user, it did not send timezone records to the device. (DT
616535)
BlackBerry Administration Service fixed issues
If you configured a BlackBerry® Administration Service pool, in certain circumstances, one of the BlackBerry
Administration Service instances would stop processing messages, and the BlackBerry Administration Service pool
no longer performed as expected. (DT 1055331)
The BlackBerry Administration Service did not stop trying to send invalid notifications, which generated large log
files, caused performance issues, and prevented administrators from logging in. (DT 993127)
In an environment that included a large number of users and applications, the BlackBerry Administration Service
reconciled tasks slower than expected. (DT 980881)
If the BlackBerry Administration Service generated and queued a large number of tasks and the BlackBerry
Administration Service instance that started processing the tasks stopped, the processing took longer than
expected until the instance started again. (DT 968146)
In earlier releases of BlackBerry® Enterprise Server, for optimal performance, you could only install 4 BlackBerry
Administration Service instances in a pool. (DT 900359)
An issue existed in the BlackBerry Administration Service whereby proxy access configurations were not
appropriately encoded when stored in the database. (DT 894703)
If you applied the Disallow Third Party Application Downloads IT policy rule to a BlackBerry device, the BlackBerry
Administration Service created a job task to remove existing third-party and RIM add-on applications associated
with software configurations from the device. (DT 890899)
When you installed Microsoft® Office Communications Server 2007 R2 or Microsoft® Lync™ Server, and navigated
to BlackBerry Solution topology > Component view > Collaboration, the BlackBerry Administration Service listed
IBM® Lotus® Sametime® as the component name in the Instance information section. (DT 890401)
8
Release Notes
BlackBerry Administration Service fixed issues
If the BlackBerry Administration Service had a large number of jobs to process after the 5 minute timeout elapsed,
the BlackBerry Administration Service might not have processed all of the jobs. (DT 887734)
When you upgraded the BlackBerry® Enterprise Server software, the BlackBerry Administration Service deleted
application control policies that did not have an English locale name. (DT 863816)
When you moved a user from one BlackBerry Enterprise Server to another within a BlackBerry Domain, the
BlackBerry Administration Service would needlessly push applications that were previously pushed wirelessly to
the user's device before the user was moved. (DT 857857)
In some circumstances when you issued a "Delete all device data and disable device" command to a user's device
and then the user activated a new device before the original device acknowledged thecommand, the BlackBerry
Administration Service disabled the user's new device after an hour. (DT 836520)
For a BlackBerry Enterprise Server that was installed on Windows Server® 2008 R2, if you installed the Microsoft
security update for KB 979683 (MS10-021), you could not use the BlackBerry Administration Service. (DT 786855)
When you configured integrated Microsoft® Active Directory® authentication, and the LDAP password was 32
characters or more, you could not access or configure the BlackBerry MDS Connection Service in the BlackBerry
Administration Service. (DT 773809)
Miscellaneous and Organization role tabs appeared in the BlackBerry Administration Service, but these tabs could
not be edited by an administrator account with the permissions to edit a role. (DT 762657)
If there were many Kerberos™ services in the environment, you might not have been able to log in to the BlackBerry
Administration Service using Windows® authentication due to a request timeout. (DT 711491)
Due to an incorrect value in the BlackBerry Configuration Database, you might not have been able to delete users
and the BlackBerry Administration Service log file included the following error message:
" [org.hibernate.util.JDBCExceptionReporter] [ERROR] Violation of UNIQUE KEY constraint
'IX_HandheldConfig_Name'. Cannot insert duplicate key in object 'dbo.HandheldConfig'" (DT 716329)
If you installed a new BlackBerry Enterprise Server instance and you imported the BlackBerry® Client Access License
keys into the new BlackBerry Configuration Database using a database script instead of using the BlackBerry
Administration Service or the setup application, administrative users might not have been able to log in to the
new BlackBerry Administration Service. BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0 SP3 includes an auto-correction feature
that allows you to import BlackBerry CAL keys into a BlackBerry Configuration Database directly using a database
script. (DT 708890)
The BlackBerry Administration Service now prevents administrators from making changes beyond their intended
permissions. (DT 704203)
9
Release Notes
BlackBerry Administration Service fixed issues
If BlackBerry Administration Service instances in a pool experienced network connectivity issues, the BlackBerry
Administration Service tried to reconnect ten times and then stopped trying to reconnect. When this issue
occurred, the BlackBerry Administration Service did not complete subsequent dependent jobs and information
was not reconciled to devices. (DT 690665)
If you set the Disposition application control policy rule to Required, pushed an application to a device, and then
pushed an upgrade of the application to the device, the device could not install the application. The BlackBerry
Administration Service displayed the "Device Reported a general failure installing the module" error message. (DT
690469, DT 643197)
If you installed a new BlackBerry Administration Service instance and selected an existing BlackBerry Configuration
Database during the installation process, and the carrier name that was stored in the BlackBerry Configuration
Database was long, the BlackBerry Administration Service did not permit you to manage shared drives or BlackBerry
Device Software update bundles. (DT 689474)
If you upgraded from BlackBerry Enterprise Server 4.1.x to BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0 SP1 or later, IT policies
that you assigned to users and groups might not have been transferred correctly. If multiple users belonged to a
group in the 4.1.x environment, and you assigned IT policies to the individual user accounts and to the group, after
the upgrade, the IT policies that used to be assigned to the users might have been assigned to the groups, and the
IT policies that used to be assigned to the groups might have been removed. You might not have been able to
assign a new IT policy to the group. (DT 689466)
In environments that involved network communication between two BlackBerry Administration Service instances,
when a job task was completed, the status update might have failed. As a result, any dependant job tasks were
not processed, causing an increasing number of reconciliation processes. (DT 681866)
On the Instance information tab for a BlackBerry Attachment Service instance, the General section listed
Document cache size (MB) instead of the correct label, Document cache size (number of documents). (DT 654416)
When you applied multiple IT policies to a user account and your organization included many users and groups,
the reconciliation process might have taken longer than was expected and the BlackBerry Administration Service
might have stopped responding. (DT 639176)
In certain circumstances, when you used the BlackBerry Enterprise Transporter bulk mode to move users from
BlackBerry Enterprise Server 4.1 SP7 to 5.0 SP2, reconciliation job tasks stopped unexpectedly. (DT 638633)
In certain circumstances, the clock on the computer that hosted the BlackBerry Administration Service ran slowly.
(DT 633701)
If a BlackBerry Enterprise Server administrator account had an administrative role with the Edit a group and View
a group permissions restricted to one group only, that administrator could not add a new user account to a group
immediately after adding the user account to the BlackBerry Enterprise Server. (DT 631033)
10
Release Notes
BlackBerry Administration Service fixed issues
If you used the "Specify new device password and lock device" IT administration command, or the "Delete all
device data and disable device" IT administration command, the audit records for the BlackBerry Enterprise Server
did not indicate which user account you used the IT administration command on. (DT 625187)
In previous releases of the BlackBerry Enterprise Server, if you tried to move multiple user accounts to a different
BlackBerry Enterprise Server, the BlackBerry Administration Service was not able to move the user accounts with
pending deployment jobs. In BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0 SP3, when you try to move multiple user accounts
to a different BlackBerry Enterprise Server, you are prompted to choose whether you want to move only the user
accounts with no pending deployment jobs or if you want to stop any pending deployment jobs and move all of
the user accounts. (DT 620767)
In certain circumstances, the BlackBerry Administration Service repeatedly wrote the following error message to
its log file: "Violation of PRIMARY KEY constraint 'PK_BASJobTaskDependencies'. Cannot insert duplicate key in
object 'dbo.BASJobTaskDependencies." (DT 617678)
If you configured a BlackBerry Administration Service pool and you restarted multiple BlackBerry Administration
Service instances at a time, the BlackBerry Administration Service instances might not have identified a singleton
and errors might have occurred. (DT 613238)
The BlackBerry Administration Service now performs additional sanitization of log output to ensure sensitive
information is not recorded. (DT 610321)
In certain circumstances, if you pushed a software configuration out to a large number of users (for example,
2000), the BlackBerry Administration Service used more than its maximum of 670 threads and stopped
unexpectedly with an out of memory error. (DT 608647)
When you accessed the BlackBerry Administration Service and the BlackBerry Monitoring Service in two different
tabs in the same Windows® Internet Explorer® window, the BlackBerry Administration Service timed out. (DT
605059)
The BlackBerry Administration Service did not support searching for user accounts using the mailbox ID. As a result,
if you used the BlackBerry Enterprise Server User Administration Tool, you could not search for user accounts by
canonical name. (DT 604566)
If you tried to perform a task in the BlackBerry Administration Service that required a BlackBerry Mail Store Service
to access a user account's mailbox, the operation would not complete successfully if the request was sent to a
BlackBerry Mail Store Service that did not have the necessary permissions to access the user's mailbox. (DT 604343)
If you installed the BlackBerry Enterprise Server in a failover configuration, installed the BlackBerry database
notification system, and activated a user account, reconciliation might not have worked and the following messages
might have appeared in the BlackBerry Administration Service - Application Server log file:

The BlackBerry Administration Service did not parse the .alx file in an application bundle correctly if the .alx file
referenced the same directory more than once, and on separate lines. (DT 579943)
If you disabled IT policy amalgamation, created two IT policies, assigned the IT policies to groups, exported the IT
policies, and then imported them to the same BlackBerry Enterprise Server, groups that were assigned the lower
ranked IT policy had their IT policy removed, but groups that were assigned the higher ranked IT policy retained
their IT policy. (DT 579795)
If you assigned a software configuration to a user account and then tried to view the user's configuration
information in the BlackBerry Administration Service, you might have been logged out of the BlackBerry
Administration Service. (DT 571423)
If you enabled IT policy amalgamation, created more than one custom IT policy, assigned the IT policies to groups,
exported the IT policies, and then imported them to the same BlackBerry Enterprise Server, users who previously
had an amalgamated IT policy appeared to have only one IT policy assigned, but the name of the one IT policy was
the amalgamated IT policy name. (DT 568767)
When you configured the distribution settings for an IT policy to run every day at specific times (for example, 3:00
PM), and configured the default delay to be greater than the difference between the next distribution time and
the current time (for example, the default delay was 15 minutes and the current time was 2:50 PM), the distribution
job did not run until the next day. (DT 559148)
If you used the BlackBerry Administration Service to create an email message signature for a user account, the
signature might have appeared slightly different in the user's email messages (for example, the signature might
have included a extra blank line in the email message). (DT 545641)
If you upgraded from BlackBerry® Professional Software 4.1 SP4 to BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0 SP2, you might
not have been able to log in to the BlackBerry Administration Service. (DT 544315, DT 544351, DT 544257)
12
Release Notes
BlackBerry Administration Service fixed issues
When you imported an IT policy from an earlier version of the BlackBerry Enterprise Server, the BlackBerry
Administration Service displayed the "The application has encountered a system error. Please report this error to
the System Administrator" error message instead of the "The version of the import data does not match the current
BlackBerry Administration Service version" error message. (DT 543638)
In the BlackBerry Administration Service, if you viewed the status of reconciliation events and refreshed the page
in your web browser, the BlackBerry Administration Service might have generated a system error. (DT 535218)
You could not manage the synchronization of a user's private contacts folder if the user signed in to Microsoft®
Outlook® Web Access for the first time while their web browser was configured for one of the following languages:
Spanish, Italian, German, or Chinese. (DT 534941)
After you moved a user account from BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0 SP2 to BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0, if
you tried to edit their organizer data settings, the BlackBerry Administration Service logged you out and the
BlackBerry Administration Service wrote stack trace errors to the BlackBerry Administration Service - Application
Server log file. (DT 532356)
If you sent a Set Owner Information command over the wireless network to a device, the event was not logged
by the BlackBerry Administration Service. (DT 528724)
The From and Sent To fields were limited to 150 characters in the BlackBerry Administration Service when creating
message filters. (DT 526699)
An issue in the BlackBerry Administration Service could have resulted in security feature misuse due to lack of
secure credential handling. (DT 526157)
Multiple issues in the BlackBerry Administration Service could have resulted in potential Cross Site Scripting (XSS)
and Cross Site Request forgery vulnerabilities. These issues are resolved by improved validation of URLs. (DT
525829)
In some circumstances, you could not push applications that relied on the vendor ID over the wireless network
using the BlackBerry Enterprise Server. The BlackBerry Administration Service resolved only a hexadecimal value
for the vendor ID. (DT 522454)
The BlackBerry Administration Service displayed an exception error if the body of a custom activation message
began with a plus (+) sign. (DT 520133)
After you installed BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0 SP1 with the BlackBerry Collaboration Service for Microsoft®
Office Communications Server 2007, the BlackBerry Administration Service displayed that the BlackBerry
Collaboration Service for Microsoft® Office Live Communications Server 2005 was installed instead. (DT 513156)
13
Release Notes
BlackBerry Administration Service fixed issues
If you had set the BlackBerry Device Software deployment managed by BlackBerry Administration Service option
to Yes, when you upgraded the BlackBerry Enterprise Server, the current settings in the Default IT Policy returned
to the original default settings. (DT 508621)
When you exported summary data for a large number of user accounts using the BlackBerry Administration Service,
the transaction time limit might have been exceeded, which prevented the action from completing successfully.
(DT 508049)
The EJB3 remote connection functionality that is part of JBoss® Web Server now correctly applies specified cipher
restrictions. (DT 507404)
If you configured database mirroring and the mirror BlackBerry Configuration Database did not use port number
1433, the BlackBerry Enterprise Server could not connect to the mirror BlackBerry Configuration Database. (DT
504239, DT 501985)
The BlackBerry Administration Service could not manage user accounts that were duplicated in the BlackBerry
Configuration Database. (DT 501446)
An insufficient permissions error was displayed in the BlackBerry Administration Service log file if you attempted
to log in to the BlackBerry Administration Service using an administrator account that had a customized role that
did not have the View Instance permission turned on. (DT 496896)
If you accessed the BlackBerry Administration Service in a language other than English using Mozilla® Firefox® or
Safari, the information in the Status section on the home page of the BlackBerry Administration Service appeared
in English. (DT 495829)
If your organization created a customized administrator role that allowed administrators to view and modify only
a specific group, the administrator could not view the available group when trying to add a user account to the
group. (DT 488200, DT 488201)
When you sent a "Delete all device data and disable device" IT administration command to certain devices, the
BlackBerry Administration Service closed. (DT 482771)
The description for the Enterprise Administrator role in the BlackBerry Administration Service stated that the
enterprise administrator had all rights as a security administrator, except that the enterprise administrator could
only view role assignments. (DT 482257)
The BlackBerry Administration Service cached administration permissions, allowing for stale permission
application. (DT 479462)

The audit scripts for the BlackBerry Administration Service did not log when a group was created or the group
name changed. (DT 444932)
An issue in the BlackBerry Administration Service where anonymous ciphers were supported could have led to
weak or no access control on communications channels. Support for anonymous ciphers has been removed from
the BlackBerry Administration Service configuration. (DT 410053)
When using multiple tabs in Windows Internet Explorer 7 to access the BlackBerry Administration Service, the
information you typed in one tab might have appeared in another tab. (DT 387664)

When you configure Microsoft Active Directory authentication for the BlackBerry Administration Service and
provide the global catalog server names (rather than permitting the BlackBerry Administration Service to discover
the global catalog servers automatically), the BlackBerry Administration Service does not use these global catalog
servers when performing Kerberos™ authentication. (DT 731603)
If you search for a large number of users in the BlackBerry Administration Service, in certain circumstances, the
JVM might run out of memory and no results are returned. (DT 712427)
The way that you can configure the maximum file size for attachments using the Maximum Native Attachment
MTH attachment size IT policy rule and the Maximum Download Attachment Size (KB) field in the BlackBerry
Administration Service is confusing. The BlackBerry Enterprise Server implements the most restrictive setting. (DT
705600)
If you import IT policies from an earlier version of the BlackBerry Enterprise Server into BlackBerry Enterprise
Server 5.0 SP1 and later, and the BlackBerry Enterprise Server has different SRP information from the BlackBerry
Enterprise Server that it was imported from, you cannot edit the IT policies in BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0 SP1
and later and therefore BlackBerry device users cannot send or receive email messages. (DT 695990)
If you install a new BlackBerry Administration Service instance and select an existing BlackBerry Configuration
Database during the installation process, you cannot access or manage the BlackBerry Attachment Connector
instances in the BlackBerry Administration Service. The BlackBerry Administration Service displays the "The request

If you install the BlackBerry Enterprise Server and the BlackBerry Administration Service on the same computer,
change the FQDN of the computer while keeping the IP address the same, and ensure that the previous FQDN is
still reachable to the same IP address, the BlackBerry Enterprise Server does not update the BlackBerry
Configuration Database correctly and runs jobs at incorrect times, which can cause the database size to increase
unexpectedly. (DT 633315)
Workaround: Remove the DNS alias for the previous FQDN and restart the BlackBerry Administration Service.
In certain browsers (for example, Windows Internet Explorer), after you configure the BlackBerry Administration
Service to support single sign-on, if you access the BlackBerry Administration Service from a browser that is located
on the same computer as the BlackBerry Administration Service, you see the login page. (DT 618098)
Workaround: Use Firefox instead.
In certain circumstances, when you reconcile IT policies for large groups (for example, 30,000 users), the
reconciliation process might stop unexpectedly. (DT 605175)
When you enable Microsoft Active Directory authentication for a large group of users, you must configure each
user account individually, which might take a long time. (DT 602402)
Workaround: Use the BlackBerry® Enterprise Server Resource Kit to configure large groups of user accounts. For
more information, see the documentation for the BlackBerry Enterprise Server Resource Kit.
In certain circumstances, if you assign IT policies individually to users, add the users to a group, assign an IT policy
to a group, and then clear the individually assigned IT policies for the users, the BlackBerry Administration Service
might take a long time to clear the individually assigned IT policies and respond to user input. (DT 596845)
If you install the Microsoft® hotfix KB956572 (support.microsoft.com/kb/956572) on a computer that hosts the

The BlackBerry MDS Connection Service does not write any information to its log file indicating whether a push
was successful or not. (DT 819201)
When the BlackBerry MDS Connection Service attempts to push data to a device that is running BlackBerry 6 and
does not have connectivity turned on, the BlackBerry MDS Connection Service writes a null pointer exception to
its log file. (DT 809140)
If a device is connected to a Wi-Fi® network only (mobile network is turned off) and the user browses to a PDF file,
the user cannot save the PDF file and the PDF file opens as a blank page. This issue is because the device tries to
use a browser transport that uses the BlackBerry Enterprise Server if direct Wi-Fi transport does not work. (DT
809117)
When a user browses to a file using the Files application, and the device specifies an Accept header but the
BlackBerry MDS Connection Service cannot identify the MIME content type, the HTTP handler can forward the
content to the device, but the DFTP handler cannot and returns status code 406. (DT 807485)
The BlackBerry MDS Connection Service writes low-level messages to the Windows Event Log™ which might fill
the Windows Event Log. (DT 805879)
When a user uses the Files application to open a Microsoft® Word document that contains Japanese characters
and that is located on a shared network drive, BlackBerry MDS Connection Service does not transcode the
information as expected and the device does not display Japanese characters correctly. (DT 711282)
Users cannot use the Files application to open an RTF document that is located on a shared network drive. (DT

BlackBerry Messaging Agent known issues
When a BlackBerry® device user switches to another BlackBerry device, email prepopulation might start before
the activation process completes. (DT 1267967)
If public folders are updated while a device is out-of-coverage, the BlackBerry® Enterprise Server repeatedly tries
to synchronize the changes, which can cause a performance issue. (DT 1251446)
If a user creates a folder on a device and files message on the device, the BlackBerry Enterprise Server continuously
logs that it could not find the folder ID for the entry ID during the message moved rescan. The same type of
behavior happens if a folder is deleted from the device and there were filed messages to that folder. (DT 1198758)
When receiving a missed conversation or missed call messages for Microsoft® Office Communications Server 2007
which is delivered to Microsoft® Outlook®, the same message is not delivered to the recipient's device. (DT

error messages to the log files. (DT 1101865)
If a user adds a contact from a vCard® attachment that has a last name but no first name, the device stores the
last name in the first name field. (DT 1055796)
If you add a user account to the BlackBerry Enterprise Server but do not activate the device, the BlackBerry
Enterprise Server performs unnecessary actions on the user account (for example, queuing changes to calendar
entries). (DT 1043002)
When performing a user lookup using a BlackBerry device, the Note field will be populated differently based on
whether you configure the BlackBerry Enterprise Server to use LDAP or MAPI to connect to Microsoft® Active
Directory®. For example, if the user account populates both the Description field on the General tab and the Notes
field on the Telephones tab, a BlackBerry Enterprise Server configured to use the MAPI protocol will return the
value entered into the Description field; a lookup using LDAP will return the value entered in the Notes field. (DT
1014980)
When a BlackBerry device user views an email message that is formatted in badly formed HTML, the email message
might be truncated. (DT 1007016)
If you configure the BlackBerry Enterprise Server to use LDAP to connect to Microsoft Active Directory directly, if
a BlackBerry device user specifies a Home2 phone number, the number will appear twice on the user's device in
both the Home2 and Other fields. (DT 1006092)
When performing a user lookup using a device, fields in the user search results might appear blank if the user
account has multiple values entered for a field. For example, if the user account has multiple home phone numbers,
the search results will not display the user's home phone number. (DT 1005903, DT 1002292)
The Handheldcleanup -u command lists all user accounts instead of isolating the user accounts that have a modified
server domain name. (DT 995308)
In some circumstances, if the Junk-Email folder is selected for redirection on a device, and the Hide Files Messages
option is set to Yes, email messages are displayed in the Messages folder instead of being hidden. (DT 962661)
If a user is associated with a BlackBerry Enterprise Server that is configured to use LDAP ALP search and performs
a remote search for another user from the device, the user cannot view the display name that is associated with
the Remote Lookup search results. (DT 916520)
The Notes field for contacts in the Public Folders Database in Microsoft® Exchange Server 2010 does not
synchronize with the device. The BlackBerry Enterprise Server displays the "8007000e MAPI_E_NOT_ENOUGH_MEMORY" error message in the Notes field. (DT 854487)

When you send a message from a device to a user in the same mail domain, some lines in a long signature might
be appended to each other when the message is viewed in Microsoft Outlook. (DT 839591)
When you compose an email message on a device with the Hebrew language pack installed, if you select Hebrew
as the language and start typing your message, then you change the language to English and type some text, and
then you change the language back to Hebrew to type more text and send the email, in Microsoft Outlook the
Hebrew character set changes to display from left to right instead of how it was entered from right to left. (DT

If you move user accounts from one Microsoft Exchange Server to another, and fail over a BlackBerry Enterprise
Server pair, the new primary BlackBerry Enterprise Server does not start the user account. (DT 757160)
Workaround: Restart the BlackBerry Messaging Agent.
If you move user accounts from one Microsoft Exchange Server to another, and fail over a BlackBerry Enterprise
Server pair, the new standby BlackBerry Enterprise Server continues to check the health of the Microsoft Exchange
Server that you moved user accounts from, even though no user accounts exist any longer on that Microsoft
Exchange Server. (DT 757158)
If a user sends a vCard that includes a picture as an attachment to an email message, the device does not receive
the attached vCard. (DT 751035)
The BlackBerry Messaging Agent log file does not always clearly indicate the issue. For example, the message
"MAPIMailbox::RIMAttachtoMAPIAttach - OpenProperty (0x80004005) failed" can occur in the log file for various
reasons, but it is not always clear what the reason is. (DT 742344)
If you add and activate a user account on one BlackBerry Domain and then add the same user account to a second
BlackBerry Domain without removing it from the first BlackBerry Domain, the second BlackBerry Domain starts
the user account and changes the service books on the device. (DT 730081)
Workaround: Always remove user accounts from one BlackBerry Domain before adding them to another
BlackBerry Domain.
After the address book lookup process notices a change to a user account, the process does not stop the user
accounts and restart them. (DT 698964)
If you move the Windows® account that the BlackBerry Enterprise Server is using to connect to the Microsoft
Exchange Server to another Microsoft Exchange Server, after some time, the health checks that the BlackBerry
Enterprise Server completes start failing and the BlackBerry Enterprise Server continually restarts user accounts
on the Microsoft Exchange Server that the Windows account was moved from. This can impact the flow of messages
and calendar synchronization for the user accounts. (DT 686243)
Workaround: Restart the BlackBerry Messaging Agent.

Upgrade process known issues
Workaround: Reconfigure the software configurations after you complete the upgrade process.
If you are upgrading an environment that includes many users who can log in to the BlackBerry Administration
Service using BlackBerry Enterprise Server authentication, the setup application might appear to have stopped
responding in the Installing the BlackBerry Enterprise Server files and required third-party applications dialog
box. The setup application is applying additional migration steps to these user accounts which can take some time.
(DT 1045857)
If you are upgrading from BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0 SP1 or 5.0 SP2 using a different account than the account
you installed with, the upgrade process might not be able to complete. The setup application writes the following
message to the log file: "[CBESDBInstaller::executeRetryDDL] COM Error 0x80040E37 - IDispatch error #3127 Source: "Microsoft OLE DB Provider for SQL Server" - Description "Cannot drop the table 'ServerConnectionVTemp',
because it does not exist in the system catalog." Native error = 3701". (DT 1036048)
The upgrade process does not preserve the logging level that you set for the BlackBerry Attachment Service. (DT
1028329)
Workaround: In the BlackBerry Administration Service, reset the logging level after the upgrade process completes.
When performing an in-place upgrade from BlackBerry Enterprise Server 4.0 SP7 to BlackBerry Enterprise Server
5.0 SP3, the installation process fails and displays the “%s installation has failed” error message when you click on
"Start services". (DT 1018750)
Workaround: Upgrade BlackBerry Enterprise Server 4.0 SP7 in stages, first to version 5.0 SP1 and then to version
5.0 SP3. If you already upgraded BlackBerry Enterprise Server 4.0 SP7 to version 5.0 SP3, you must uninstall the
BlackBerry Enterprise Server software and reinstall BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0 SP3. After reinstalling, you
must reconfigure any custom settings that you created in BlackBerry Enterprise Server 4.0 SP7 for the BlackBerry
Attachment Service.
If you installed the BlackBerry Collaboration Service with BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0 SP2, when you upgrade
to BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0 SP3 and select Microsoft® Office Communications Server 2007 R2 or Microsoft®
Lync™ Server as the instant messaging server, the port numbers do not display the default values (5061 for TLS or
5060 for TCP, and 65061 for the listening port). (DT 1000050)
Workaround: You must type the port numbers to specify the instant messaging settings.
If you run a “Set no count on” SQL statement before you upgrade the BlackBerry Enterprise Server to 5.0 SP3, the
upgrade fails when the installation is finalizing and an “Error writing to Database” message is displayed. (DT 992357)
If you attempt to upgrade the BlackBerry Enterprise Server from 4.1.x and the default size of the BlackBerry
Monitoring Service database (BMSStore) is set to a value larger than 100 MB, the setup application cannot create
the BlackBerry Monitoring Service database and the upgrade process fails. (DT 990052)
Workaround: You can change the default size of the BlackBerry Monitoring Service database to a value smaller
than 100 MB or you can manually create the BlackBerry Monitoring Service database.

Upgrade process known issues
In some circumstances, the IBM® Lotus® Sametime® server name is not automatically prepopulated when
upgrading to BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0 SP3. (DT 984685)
Workaround: Manually enter the Lotus Sametime server name.
When upgrading from BlackBerry Enterprise Server 4.1 SP7 to 5.0 SP3, if you switch the authentication type from
SQL to Windows® authentication, the following error message is incorrectly displayed: "The Database
<database_name> does not currently exist. Would you like to create it?" (DT 978308)
Workaround: The setup application is confirming that you want to upgrade the database. Click Next to continue
the installation process.
The BlackBerry Enterprise Server now stores passwords that the BlackBerry MDS Connection Service uses to
connect to external servers in protected format in the BlackBerry Configuration Database. This change means that
when you upgrade to BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0 SP3, the proxy credentials for the BlackBerry MDS
Connection Service and BlackBerry Collaboration Service are lost. (DT 890282)
Workaround: Write down the proxy settings before you upgrade the BlackBerry Enterprise Server. After the
upgrade process completes, restore the proxy settings.
When you upgrade the BlackBerry Enterprise Server, if you change the pool name for the BlackBerry Administration
Service, the setup application should prompt you to log in to the computers in the BlackBerry Domain that host
the BlackBerry Administration Service and synchronize the local property files and registry entries with the
BlackBerry Configuration Database. (DT 853637)
Workaround:
1.
On each computer in the BlackBerry Domain that hosts the BlackBerry Administration Service or BlackBerry
Monitoring Service, open the BlackBerry Configuration Panel.
2.
Click the Administration Service - High Availability tab.
3.
Click Synchronize.
If you upgrade from BlackBerry® Enterprise Server 4.1 SP7 using an in-place upgrade process, BlackBerry devices
running BlackBerry® Device Software 5.0 no longer receive data from the BlackBerry Synchronization Service and
the BlackBerry Synchronization Service log file includes the following message: "[SYNC-UserControl] Configuration
Channel data will not be sent until key is generated. [DisplayName:UserID]". (DT 833081, DT 821972)
Workaround: Perform one of the following actions:
• Instruct the user to delete the Sync service book from the device and resend the service book.
• Instruct the user to generate new encryption keys on the device.

Release Notes
Upgrade process known issues
If the BlackBerry Enterprise Server includes evaluation license keys and enterprise license keys, and you upgrade
to version 5.0 SP2 or SP3, the setup application does not prompt you to fix this issue before starting the upgrade
process. (DT 743460)
When you upgrade the BlackBerry Enterprise Server, the setup application does not upgrade the Microsoft® SQL
Server® Native Client. (DT 732061)
Workaround: Manually install the latest version of the Microsoft SQL Server Native Client when upgrading from
BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0.
If you upgrade from BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0 SP1, and you are upgrading the only BlackBerry Administration
Service instance in the BlackBerry Domain, the setup application permits you to remove the BlackBerry
Administration Service. This can leave your organization without a running BlackBerry Administration Service. (DT
637461)
If a BlackBerry Administration Service upgrade failed because of insufficient disk space and you reinstall it, the
setup application completes successfully, but the value of the "JVM® Option Number 8" registry key is blank. (DT
622976)
Workaround: Add the registry key manually.
1.
Click Start > Run.
2.
Type regedit.
3.
Navigate to \\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\BAS-AS\Parameters.
4.
Change the value of JVM Option Number 8 to Djboss.partition.name=RIM_BES_BAS_HA_########_BLACKBERRYNEW.
5.
Restart the BlackBerry Administration Service.
After you upgrade remote components from version 5.0 SP1, the BlackBerry Administration Service displays
incorrect version information for BlackBerry Controller instances installed with remote components. (DT 617030)
When you upgrade the BlackBerry Enterprise Server from 4.1 SP7, the setup application prompts you for the SRP
ID and SRP authentication key. (DT 614767)
Workaround: Type the SRP information and continue with the upgrade process. Duplicate errors might appear in
the log file.
When you upgrade from BlackBerry Enterprise Server 4.1 SP7, when a user tries to back up device data using the
BlackBerry® Web Desktop Manager, the BlackBerry Web Desktop Manager displays the "Request could not be
completed." error message and does not permit the user to save. (DT 604518)
When you upgrade to BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0 SP3, the setup application does not preserve the logging
level that you configure for the ASRV and ACNV log files in the BlackBerry Configuration Panel. (DT 600379)
71
Release Notes
Upgrade process known issues
Workaround: Use the BlackBerry Administration Service to configure the logging levels.
If during an upgrade process from BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0 SP1 you remove the local BlackBerry Attachment
Service, and later reinstall the local BlackBerry Attachment Service but configure the BlackBerry Enterprise Server
to use a remote BlackBerry Attachment Service, users cannot view attachments on devices. (DT 578530)
Workaround: Start the local BlackBerry Attachment Service.
When you upgrade the BlackBerry Enterprise Server without installing the BlackBerry database notification system,
the dbo.GetHostName stored procedure is also installed in the BlackBerry Configuration Database, though it is not
required. (DT 560408)
If you upgrade the BlackBerry Enterprise Server from version 5.0 and you give the account full permissions on the
BlackBerry Configuration Database and only denydatawriter permissions on the BlackBerry Monitoring Service
database, the setup application does not respond. (DT 506639)
Workaround: Close the setup application, correct the permissions on the account, and run the setup application
again.
After you upgrade the BlackBerry Enterprise Server, the version numbers of the BlackBerry Enterprise Server
components are not updated in the BlackBerry Administration Service until you start the BlackBerry Enterprise
Server components. (DT 491613)
Workaround: Start all of the BlackBerry Enterprise Server components.
After you upgrade a BlackBerry Domain from version 4.1, the BlackBerry Administration Service may display one
or more BlackBerry MDS Connection Service instances that do not exist. (DT 490746)
Workaround: Use the BlackBerry Administration Service to remove the BlackBerry MDS Connection Service
instances that do not exist, if possible. Removing them by using the BlackBerry Administration Service is not always
possible because the BlackBerry Administration Service may request that the software be removed first and this
is not possible since the software does not exist.
During an upgrade, if you configure the BlackBerry Enterprise Server to use Microsoft® Office Communicator 2007
in the Instant messaging settings dialog box, the setup application displays the incorrect Microsoft® Office Live
Communications Server 2005 (Office Communicator) in the Summary dialog box. (DT 427065)
If you uninstall BlackBerry Enterprise Server 4.1 or later and install BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0 or later on the
same computer, the setup application finds software and registry keys for BlackBerry Enterprise Server 4.1 when
it performs the BlackBerry Policy Service configuration validations and does not allow the upgrade process to
proceed. (DT 427051)
Workaround: Reinstall BlackBerry Enterprise Server 4.1 SP6 and then upgrade to BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0.

Wireless calendar synchronization known issues
If you upgrade a remote BlackBerry Monitoring Service from version 5.0, the URL of the BlackBerry® Web Desktop
Manager in the last dialog box of the setup application contains the NetBIOS name instead of the FQDN. (DT
296369)
Wireless calendar synchronization known issues
If a BlackBerry® device user creates a recurring appointment with the time duration set to 0, and then the user
changes one of the instances on the BlackBerry device, the change is not synchronized to the email application
and the device deletes the instance. (DT 1256362)
If a user creates a recurring meeting using Microsoft® Outlook® Web Access, the meeting is not synchronized to
the device. (DT 1229655)
If the time zone on the device is set to GMT+10 Canberra, Sydney, and the BlackBerry® Enterprise Server uses CDO
to connect to the calendars, when the user creates a recurring meeting on the device, the times on the device and
email application might differ. (DT 1351936)
Workaround: Use the GMT+10 Hobert time zone on the device instead.
When using calendar web services in an environment that includes both Microsoft® Exchange 2007 and 2010,
appointments might not synchronize to devices snf the log files might include the following message: "COM
Exception: Code = 80131501 - Description = An internal server error occurred" (DT 1156803)
When a user creates a calendar appointment on a BlackBerry 9800 smartphone that includes Korean characters
in the subject and location lines, after the device synchronizes the appointment with the BlackBerry Enterprise
Server, the Korean characters show up incorrectly. (DT 1065593)
During calendar synchronization, if the BlackBerry Enterprise Server cannot determine the time zone for a calendar
entry, the calendar synchronization process fails. (DT 1064478)
Workaround: Delete and recreate the calendar entry in Microsoft® Outlook® and run the calendar synchronization
process again.
In some circumstances, if you disable wireless calendar updates and delete all calendar entries on a device using
the BlackBerry® Web Desktop Manager, duplicate calendar entries might be created during a full synchronization
process between the Microsoft Outlook calendar and on a device. (DT 995308)
Workaround: Manually delete the duplicate calendar entries in Microsoft Outlook Calendar and perform a second
slow synchronization operation.
For certain BlackBerry® 6 devices, after a user receives a meeting invitation on a device, when the meeting organizer
sends an update, the device displays the update as an email message and not as a calendar entry. (DT 891984)
