Upgrading from the BlackBerry Professional Software to the BlackBerry Enterprise Server
Upgrade Guide
Upgrading from the BlackBerry Professional Software to
the BlackBerry Enterprise Server
1
Your organization can upgrade from the BlackBerry® Professional Software to a supported higher version of the BlackBerry®
Enterprise Server. The decision to upgrade might be influenced by factors such as the following:
•
•
•
•
The number of BlackBerry device users in your organization is approaching the maximum of 30 users.
The number of users or administrators in your organization requires group-based or role-based administration.
Users need access to applications that were developed using the BlackBerry® MDS Studio or the BlackBerry® Plugin for Microsoft® Visual Studio®.
Users want to use collaboration clients, such as the BlackBerry® Client for IBM® Lotus® Connections.

If the BlackBerry Professional Software is currently installed on a computer that is
separate from the messaging server, you can upgrade to the BlackBerry Enterprise
Server on the same computer.
If the BlackBerry Professional Software is currently installed on the computer that
hosts the messaging server, you must first install the BlackBerry Professional Software
on the computer where you plan to install the BlackBerry Enterprise Server software.
You can then upgrade to the BlackBerry Enterprise Server on this computer.
If you plan to install the BlackBerry Enterprise Server components on more than one
computer, you must install the BlackBerry Professional Software on each computer
that you plan to use. You can then upgrade to the BlackBerry Enterprise Server on
each computer.
If the computer that hosts the messaging server currently also hosts the BlackBerry
Configuration Database, you do not have to move the BlackBerry Configuration
Database when you upgrade to the BlackBerry Enterprise Server.
If you plan to move the existing BlackBerry Configuration Database to a new
Microsoft® SQL Server®, you must perform the move before you begin the upgrade
process.

Upgrade Guide
Hardware
Scenario
•
•
If the BlackBerry Configuration Database is currently installed on a computer that is
separate from the messaging server, you can configure the connection to the
BlackBerry Configuration Database during the BlackBerry Enterprise Server upgrade
process.
If you are adding a large number of users, or if you expect a significant increase in
the number of email messages that users send and receive, consider moving the
BlackBerry Configuration Database to its own host computer. You perform this move
before you begin the upgrade process.
For information about moving the BlackBerry Configuration Database, visit

Setting up the database connection
Setting up the database connection

The BlackBerry® Enterprise Server can connect to the BlackBerry Configuration Database on the Microsoft® SQL Server®
using either Windows® authentication or database authentication.
If you use Windows authentication, the BlackBerry Manager logs in to the BlackBerry Configuration Database using the
Windows account that you used to complete the installation.
If you use database authentication with Microsoft SQL Server, the BlackBerry Manager authenticates to the BlackBerry
Configuration Database using the database credentials that you used when the database was set up.
Using the existing BlackBerry Configuration Database after the upgrade
to the BlackBerry Enterprise Server
If you plan to use the existing BlackBerry® Configuration Database on its existing computer when you upgrade to the
BlackBerry® Enterprise Server, no setup is required before you begin the upgrade process.
During the upgrade process, you specify whether the BlackBerry Configuration Database is installed locally or remotely, the
name of the BlackBerry Configuration Database, and the name of the database server.
Specifying permissions when connecting to the BlackBerry Enterprise
Server databases using Windows authentication
During the installation process, if you choose to connect to the BlackBerry® Enterprise Server databases using Windows®
authentication, the Windows account that you use must have permissions on the database server. The type of permissions
depends on the setup option that you choose, and whether you create the BlackBerry Enterprise Server databases on the
same computer as the BlackBerry Enterprise Server components or on another database server.
Assign Microsoft SQL Server permissions to the Microsoft Windows account
>
Perform one of the following actions:
• If you create the BlackBerry® Configuration Database on the same computer as the BlackBerry® Enterprise
Server, or if you install the BlackBerry MDS Integration Service, assign the system administrator permission to the
Microsoft® Windows® account that you are using to complete the installation.
• If you create the BlackBerry Configuration Database on another computer, assign server administrator and database
creator permissions to the Microsoft Windows account that you are using to complete the installation. If you are
using Microsoft® SQL Server® 2005, assign the system administrator permission, or each of the following roles:
SQLAgentUserRole, SQLAgentReaderRole, and SQLAgentOperatorRole.
