Installing the maintenance release
Verify that the version number is at least 5.0.4 (Bundle 38).
Install the maintenance release
If you configured BlackBerry Enterprise Server high availability to limit the downtime of BlackBerry services, you can install
the maintenance release on the standby BlackBerry Enterprise Server instance, fail over to the standby BlackBerry
Enterprise Server, and then install the maintenance release on the primary BlackBerry Enterprise Server.
Before you begin:
• On the computer that hosts the BlackBerry Enterprise Server, make sure that you can access the installation files that
were used to install the BlackBerry Enterprise Server. Depending on how the software was installed, the files might be
on a product CD or in a network location.
•
On the computer that hosts the BlackBerry Administration Service, make sure that the service ports are synchronized
with the BlackBerry Configuration Database. For more information, visit the Knowledge Base at blackberry.com/
support to read article KB26557.
•
This maintenance release includes updates to the BlackBerry Configuration Database. You must back up the
BlackBerry Configuration Database so that you can restore it if the BlackBerry Enterprise Server upgrade process does
not complete. For more information about backing up the BlackBerry Configuration Database, see the BlackBerry
Enterprise Server Upgrade Guide.
Note:
•
There are two sets of executables for updating BlackBerry OS support. One set is used for updating BlackBerry
Enterprise Server 5.0 SP4 environments and the other set is used for updating BlackBerry OS support in BES12
environments.
•
If you have a new installation of BES12 (not BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0 SP4 upgraded to BES12), you cannot run
the BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0 SP4 installer to add BlackBerry OS support.
•
If you are running BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0 SP4, you can upgrade MR11 to BES12.
1.
Using the service account (for example, BESAdmin), log in to the computer that you want to install the maintenance
release on.
2.
In the Windows Services, stop all BlackBerry Enterprise Server services.
3.
Close the Windows Services.
4.
Download the installation files to a folder on the computer.

Maintenance Release Notes
Fixed issues
Fixed issues
4
Issues marked with an asterisk (*) are newly fixed in this release. All other issues were fixed in previous maintenance
releases.
Activation
A delay of over 10 minutes in the OTAKEYGEN process leaves devices in a disconnected state. When promotion of the key
fails, the device is left using the old key while the BlackBerry Enterprise Serveris left using the new key. In this state, the
device can send but not receive (decrypt) packets from the BlackBerry Enterprise Server. (DT 6738489).
If moving a user fails because the application acknowledgment of the move request was not received, the user remains in a
pending state, preventing all subsequent activation attempts. This state requires administrator intervention to remove, readd, and reactivate the user. (DT 6390380).
BlackBerry Administration API
The BlackBerry Administration API becomes unavailable after upgrading to BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0 SP4 MR7. (JI
670055).
BlackBerry Administration Service
* After an upgrade to BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0 SP4 MR10, legacy Client Access Licenses generate the following
error message: "License key is not valid for BES12. Obtain and add valid BlackBerry OS licenses for BES12, then delete
this license key." This situation happens when BES12 is not installed. (JI 856319).
* When activating a Client Access License in a BES12 / BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0 SP4 MR10 environment, the
following error message is generated : "License key is not valid for BES12. Obtain and add valid BlackBerry OS licenses for
BES12, then delete this license key." (JI 846470).
After an upgrade to BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0 SP4 MR7, the JVM Option 8 registry value for BlackBerry
Administration Service AS and NCC is omitted and those services,BlackBerry Enterprise ServerJVMBlackBerry
Administration Service do not start correctly. (JI 682802).
Device initiated reconciliation events cause slow throughput in multiple node environments and environments with large
numbers of devices. (JI 675633).
11
Maintenance Release Notes
Fixed issues
After an upgrade to BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0 SP4 MR7, the BlackBerry Administration Service becomes
unresponsive during startup because the 'BASTimerHandles' table has an old value in the 'EJBTimerHandle' field. (JI
674338).
After an upgrade to BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0 SP4 MR7, the BlackBerry Administration Service NCC JVM options
registry keys are updated incorrectly when the Server Configuration utility is used to update the BlackBerry Administration
Service NCC internal ports. (JI 665092).
High CPU usage happens for extended periods of time on the BlackBerry Administration Service during reconciliation
because of repeated XML validation of internal ACP Data. (JI 598141)
A BlackBerry Administration Service JVM runs out of memory and becomes unavailable when a software configuration
containing five applications is assigned to a group of 5000 users or more, who are enrolled with at least three devices each
(15,000 or more devices in total). (DT 7280978).
After the BlackBerry Collaboration Service is upgraded from Microsoft Lync Server 2010 to Lync 2013, the instance,
collaboration client type, and transfer protocol name is not represented as Lync 2013 in the BlackBerry Administration
Service. (DT 6721800).
The BlackBerry Administration Service database reconciliation process slows and then stops when it processes certain
jobs that contain bad data. When this occurs, you cannot log in to the BlackBerry Administration Service. The
reconciliation process should operate normally when processing these jobs. (DT 6635949).
When an IT policy change is made through the BlackBerry Administration Service Console, the previous IT Policy is re-sent
before the new IT Policy is sent. (DT 6545760).
After an administrator moves a messaging server from primary to back up, the 'Location - server' and 'Location - relative
path' database fields are cleared. This situation happens even if the value of 'Agent who determines organizer data
location' was set to 'Administrator only' and the value of 'Override the organizer data location' was set to 'Yes' for all user
accounts in BlackBerry Administration Service. (DT 6534093).
The BlackBerry Administration Service does not restart after applying BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0 SP4 MR1 or MR2 in
a Windows Server 2012 environment. (DT 6489174).
You cannot customize the Manage Users view by moving columns to the left side of the view as you did in BlackBerry
Administration Service 5.0.3. The columns are anchored and will return to their original position. (DT 5897303).
The BlackBerry Administration Service cannot specify a Server Routing Protocol (SRP) address that begins with a numeral
as a fully qualified domain name (FQDN). The associated method within the code assumes that it is an IP address and tries
to validate it as such. (DT 4405948).

Maintenance Release Notes
Fixed issues
BlackBerry Attachment Service
*PDFs containing FreeType fonts cause memory corruption issues which can result in a stoppage of the BlackBerry
Attachment Service process. (JI 830354).
ASCL logging does not identify when an BlackBerry Attachment Service server connector is not configured during
attachment processing. (JI 742570).
There are missing symbols in the BlackBerry Attachment Service memory dumps. This causes difficulties when
troubleshooting issues with BlackBerry Attachment Service because the outputs are not legible. (DT 6488503).
The BlackBerry Attachment Service does not convert date and time data in the Japanese version of Microsoft Excel
spreadsheets. (DT 6044493).
Certain Microsoft Office files created with LibreOffice cannot be opened on the BlackBerry device using the basic viewer.
Only files saved in Microsoft Excel 97-2003, 2007, and XP or Microsoft PowerPoint 97-2003, 2007, and XP file formats
open on the BlackBerry device. It is expected that all Microsoft Office files created with LibreOffice open on the BlackBerry
device. (DT 5975763).
On the BlackBerry device, in the Basic Viewer for Microsoft Excel, negative numbers for the 1000 (thousandth) separatorenabled format appear incorrectly. Parentheses "()" should appear around such negative numbers. (DT 5799453).
BlackBerry Collaboration Service
When the BlackBerry Collaboration Service encounters missing heartbeats between itself and the OCS Connector, the OCS
Connector is restarted but no messages are processed and Enterprise IM feature is lost until after a restart of the
BlackBerry Collaboration Service. (DT 8331922).
On BlackBerry Enterprise Server instances configured for high-availability, the BlackBerry Collaboration Service that uses
Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 R2 or Microsoft Lync Server 2010 fails to start when Instant messaging
server pool is load balanced is set to Yes. The high-availability pair creates duplicate Trusted Service Entries (TSEs) within
Microsoft Active Directory for the load balanced instant messaging server pool. (DT 2019072).
BlackBerry Dispatcher
If no BlackBerry Messaging Agents are connected to the BlackBerry Dispatcher when it broadcasts a failover mode alert
(during a failover), the function that handles the broadcast returns an error, preventing BlackBerry Dispatcher from
updating itself accordingly. When the next failover occurs, BlackBerry Dispatcher will not attempt to broadcast a failover
mode alert to the BlackBerry Messaging Agents. (DT 6503927).
A high availability server configured for automatic failover is flagged as "unhealthy" after a connection to port 5096 is
established and dropped. (DT 1889799).
13
Maintenance Release Notes
Fixed issues
When two users swap their BlackBerry devices before a failover, the BlackBerry Dispatcher incorrectly detects duplicate
personal identification numbers (PINs) and resets the PIN to 0 for one of the users after the failover. (DT 454394).
BlackBerry Enterprise Server Maintenance Release Installer
When upgrading to BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0 SP4 MR9 (Bundle #188, released on September 10, 2014), the
BlackBerry Attachment Service may become unavailable. (JI 774719).
When upgrading only the BlackBerry Enterprise Server core components to 5.0 SP4 MR8, BlackBerry Administration
Service is also installed on the core server if no BlackBerry Web Desktop Manager node is installed in the BlackBerry
Domain. (JI 755351).
During an upgrade to BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0 SP4 MR7, the BlackBerry Enterprise Server Maintenance Release
Installer does not prompt you to update the BlackBerry Collaboration Service for Microsoft Lync Server 2013 support, and
the BlackBerry Collaboration Service defaults to Microsoft Lync Server 2010 support. (JI 675413).
The correct version information is not displayed in Windows Control Panel after installing BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0
SP4 MR7. (JI 662815).
When upgrading from BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0 SP2 to BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0 SP3 MR3, the upgrade of
the BlackBerry Administration Service is unsuccessful and stalls at the "please wait while the loading process completes"
prompt when you use "HTTP:8080." (JI 598324).
The BlackBerry Dispatcher service is removed if you attempt to reinstall BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0 SP4 MR7. (JI
675346).
If the installation drive is set to something different from the default (C:) when installing BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0
SP4 MR5 on Windows Server 2012, then the JRE installation does not complete and services are mapped to a nonexistent
version of JRE. (JI 598379).
The BlackBerry Enterprise Server Maintenance Release Installer does not automatically update JRE 1.6 to update 37
during the initial installation of the maintenance release. (DT 5763463).
BlackBerry Enterprise Server setup application
When you upgrade to BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0.4 from BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0.3, the version number in
the BlackBerry Administration Service is not updated accordingly. This blocks importing IT policies from the upgraded
BlackBerry Enterprise Server to a BlackBerry Enterprise Server with a fresh installation of version 5.0.4. (DT 7217060).
When you upgrade the BlackBerry Enterprise Server after installing a newer version of JDK and removing the older version
of JDK, you must reinstall the older version of JDK to successfully complete the upgrade. The BlackBerry Enterprise Server
Installer does not dynamically select the newer version of JDK. (DT 6982727).
14
Maintenance Release Notes
Fixed issues
BlackBerry MDS Connection Service
Attempts to push data to a recently moved user are unsuccessful when referencing their previous BlackBerry MDS
Connection Service push server. (JI 602524).
The BlackBerry MDS Connection Service's service book push process has a small memory leak. (JI 598470).
The BlackBerry MDS Connection Service stops processing incoming requests from devices when it encounters a Java-level
deadlock (that is when two or more threads are permanently blocked waiting for the others to resolve). (DT 7717570).
Kerberos authentication does not complete and is replaced with Microsoft NT LAN Manager (NTLM) authentication when
you use JRE 1.6 update 37. The version was updated from JRE 1.6 update 33 to JRE 1.6 update 37 as part of BlackBerry
Enterprise Server 5.0 SP4 MR1. (DT 6721494).
When all devices in an organization are configured to use BlackBerry MDS Connection Service for web traffic, and that
traffic is directed through a proxy server, the Twitter application becomes unavailable. (DT 6399750).
The BlackBerry MDS Connection Service occasionally sends a disconnect notification to the device because it falsely
diagnosed that the connection to the remote host was lost. (DT 6008209).
The proxy autoconfiguration (PAC) file retrieval process may cause other applications within your network to run slowly.
Currently, there is no method to specify a domain in the rimpublic.property file to bypass the added PAC file code for
exempted servers. (DT 5959365).
When the secure remote password (SRP) connection is lost between the BlackBerry MDS Connection Service and the
BlackBerry Dispatcher due to a timeout when BlackBerry MDS Connection Service is processing a large browser request,
the BlackBerry MDS Connection Service remains in standby mode after reconnection even though the BlackBerry
Dispatcher is reporting the BlackBerry MDS Connection Service. (DT 5896462).
BlackBerry device users cannot authenticate using RSA for URLs that are using HTTPS because the BlackBerry MDS
Connection Service times out while redirecting to the RSA login webpage. (DT 5894839).
BlackBerry device users cannot browse using BlackBerry MDS Integration Service authentication if they are within a
Microsoft Active Directory domain that is separate from the target website. The BlackBerry MDS Connection Service can
query Microsoft Active Directory users via a Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) only if they are in the same
domain as the web server of the targeted website. (DT 4994857, DT 6110523).
Starting with BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0 SP3 MR6, you could configure BlackBerry MDS Connection Service to route
direct Transport Layer Security (TLS) connections through a proxy server, but some connections would fail as BlackBerry
MDS Connection Service did not support proxy autoconfiguration (PAC) files for direct TLS connections. You can now
configure BlackBerry MDS Connection Service to use PAC files to route direct TLS connections through a proxy server. (DT
2737990).
15
Maintenance Release Notes
Fixed issues
BlackBerry Management Studio / BlackBerry Web Services
When you add users to a BlackBerry Enterprise Server domain from the BlackBerry Management Studio, the call to get the
list of servers may take more than 60 seconds, which then causes the connection to drop. (DT 7197839).
In domains with numerous instances of the BlackBerry Dispatcher, calls from the BlackBerry Management Studio to
retrieve a select list of servers may time out (after 60 seconds by default) while attempting to retrieve a
createUsers().server object. (DT 6312656).
BlackBerry Messaging Agent
The BlackBerry Messaging Agent becomes unresponsive during startup when it tries to process the command to get
device capabilities info. (JI 677849).
An inaccurate health status for BlackBerry Enterprise Server is seen when pending counts for the delivery of "Other"
packets are not reduced after being acknowledged as received. The packets causing this issue are those sent by "More"
requests to view large messages. (JI 598226).
BlackBerry Messaging Agent counters are not accessible or visible in Perfmon. This happens because the BlackBerry
Messaging Agent is unable to access the memory share upon startup. (DT 7913126).
After restarting the BlackBerry Controller Service, BlackBerry Enterprise Server performance counters may become
unavailable. (DT 7036898).
You cannot perform address lookups against person documents if the search string contains a partial first name and a
partial last name. (DT 7001892).
The return dates of "Out of Office" notifications are set to the day before to the correct return date on devices when
BlackBerry Enterprise Server is set to the GMT+8 timezone. (DT 6779157).
You cannot forward email messages received in Multipurpose Internet Mail Extension (MIME) format using Notes Native
Encryption (NNE). (DT 6449714).
Scans, refreshes, and health checks randomly remove handle locks on public folders, causing users to become
unsubscribed from public folders after the message: (SDT00022582) "User has insufficient access privileges to public
folder <<publicfolder>> and must be re-subscribed" is received. (DT 6309158, DT 6309328).
If the When receiving unencrypted mail, encrypt before storing in your mail file value is set to Yes, the original body text of
the email message is not included when a user forwards or replies to messages from outside the domain. (DT 6237681).
Email messages return to the original inbox when an Over-the-air Folder Manager (OTAFM) scan encounters duplicate
folder documents in the BlackBerry State database. (DT 3165118).
16
Maintenance Release Notes
Fixed issues
The due date of a follow-up message is synchronized to six hours earlier on BlackBerry devices than on the mail client. (DT
1033794).
BlackBerry Policy Service
In large databases, the SQL command to requeue pending commands requires a large amount of resources and causes
the BlackBerry Policy Service server to enter a throttled state for an undefined period, which, prevents application pushes
going to devices. (DT 7091315).
BlackBerry Router
BlackBerry Router counters are not accessible or visible in Perfmon. This happens because the BlackBerry Router is
unable to access the memory share upon startup. (DT 7913126).
On a BlackBerry Enterprise Server instance that is running on a 64-bit computer, the router client counter and the router
session counter may become unavailable when they are used at the same time. This is because the two counters access
the same shared memory block. (DT 6316873).
BlackBerry Synchronization Service
The BlackBerry Synchronization Service becomes unavailable and requires a restart after encountering an SMS item that
has an invalid value in the date/time field. (DT 8820509).
The BlackBerry Synchronization Service becomes unavailable if you attempt to use the same shared network path for audit
logging on more than one server. (DT 7105697).
When the Microsoft SQL Server is unavailable during a restart of the BlackBerry Synchronization Service, the event to retry
start-up of the PIM connectors is not sent. (DT 6877457).
Processing Short Message Service (SMS) data from large (over 160 character) messages for logging causes the BlackBerry
Synchronization Service to become unresponsive, and BlackBerry device users experience interrupted service. (DT
6873904).
Having numerous organizer data items may cause a low memory condition within the BlackBerry Synchronization Service.
Support for XML chunking between the BlackBerry Synchronization Service and its connectors is required to avoid creating
exceedingly large XML packages. (DT 4930615, DT 4415679, DT 6255659).
The BlackBerry Synchronization Service produces Short Message Service (SMS) logs that can contain unreadable text or
truncated lines after processing a Unicode message. This is due to an issue in the Unicode where least significant bytes are
switched for most significant bytes (or conversely). (DT 2599450).
The BlackBerry Synchronization Service drops responses when BlackBerry Enterprise Server is slow to respond to a
command to initialize synchronization from/for the address book. This leads to the BlackBerry device retrying the
command and the synchronization process is not started. (DT 2087862).
17
Maintenance Release Notes
Fixed issues
IBM Domino Calendar
Online meeting details are not updated after you accept a meeting update sent by Domino Notes, running on a new IBM
Domino 9.0.1 server, with your BlackBerry device. (DT 7778935).
Multiple calendar synchronization requests simultaneously arrive to the BlackBerry device when a user returns to a
wireless coverage area. This results in calendar synchronization conflicts and users experience synchronization sessions
that stop, restart, and eventually timeout. (DT 6296084).
BlackBerry Enterprise Server restart after reaching the wait count limit when processing an over-the-air calendar uninvite.
(DT 6202395).
When an instance of a recurring meeting is rescheduled twice, the second update that is sent to the BlackBerry device is
identical to the first. (DT 6029270).
Logging
Since BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0.3 MR7, the BlackBerry MDS Connection Service logs Java Null Pointer Exceptions
(NPEs) repeatedly when requesting a push message for a user with no personal identification number (PIN). Depending on
the frequency of the push message, the BlackBerry MDS Connection Service can repeatedly log NPEs, causing the logs to
grow rapidly to several gigabytes in size and resulting in a disk drive running out of space. (DT 5765689).
Security
A vulnerability existed in the implementation of the logging of exceptions encountered during user or session management
that could have allowed an attacker to gain access to logged shared secrets or domain credentials from the exception log.
The vulnerability was limited by default access controls on the server. (DT 8770510, DT 8770535).
These issues were resolved by this interim security software update. For more information, visit www.blackberry.com/btsc
to read KB35647.
Vulnerabilities existed in how the BlackBerry MDS Connection Service, BlackBerry Collaboration Service, and the
BlackBerry Messaging Agent processed TIFF images for rendering on BlackBerry devices. These vulnerabilities could have
allowed a potentially malicious user to execute arbitrary code using the privileges of the BlackBerry Enterprise Server login
account. (DT 5468999, DT 5542642, DT 5890761, and DT 6098370).
These issues were resolved by an interim security software update. The update replaces the image.dll file that the affected
components use with an image.dll file that is not affected by the vulnerabilities. For more information, visit the Knowledge
Base at blackberry.com/support to read article KB33425.
Wireless calendar synchronization
The full calendar synchronization process may not complete if a server rejects device updates for meetings that are
canceled or deleted in IBM Notes. (DT 5859843).
18
Maintenance Release Notes
Fixed issues
An invalid calendar synchronization state prevents a server-initiated full synchronization if a full synchronization session
was stopped with a non-retry-able error, such as session mismatch error. This can occur when a server attempts to initiate
a full synchronization process while the device is offline. Starting with BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0.4 MR1, in a case of
a non-retry-able error, the server waits one hour and resolves any relevant values (such as session number) to allow a new
server-initiated full synchronization process to be scheduled. (DT 5291872).

Issues marked with an asterisk (*) are newly found in this release. All other issues were found in previous maintenance
releases.
BlackBerry Administration Service
* After upgrading to BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0 SP4 MR11, you cannot access the BlackBerry Administration Service
web console using Windows Internet Explorer 9 or 11. (JI 857422).
Workaround: Use Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox to access the BlackBerry Administration Service web console. For
more information, visit the Knowledge Base at blackberry.com/support to read article KB36671.
Changes to the membership of a group to which you belong may not succeed, and a Kerberos Clock Skew error may be
displayed, when you make the changes more than 5 minutes after logging in to the BlackBerry Administration Service
using Single Sign-on (SSO). (DT 6918388).
Workaround: Begin making group membership changes within 5 minutes after logging in to the BlackBerry Administration
Service console via SSO.
BlackBerry Enterprise Server Maintenance Release Installer
An error message stating, “Error initializing system” is displayed when the BlackBerry Enterprise Server Maintenance
Release Installer cannot connect with the database during initialization. (JI 712250).
Workaround: Ensure the installer can connect with the database before an upgrade.
Depending upon the number of users, it may take longer for the BlackBerry Enterprise Server services to fully start the first
time after an upgrade because the state database designs must complete a one-time refresh. (JI 645279).
After applying BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0 SP4 MR1 or BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0 SP4 MR2 in a Microsoft
Windows Server 2012 environment, the BlackBerry Administration Service web client becomes unresponsive. (DT
6489174).
Workaround: Configure the BlackBerry Administration Service to use TCP, rather than UDP, before applying the MR.

Maintenance Release Notes
Known issues
BlackBerry Enterprise Server setup application
During Service Pack upgrades, the BlackBerry Enterprise Server setup application does not unregister the BlackBerry
Messaging Agent and the BlackBerry Router in the Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) counters before
uninstalling the old files. (DT 628488).
Performance monitoring counters are not automatically installed during BlackBerry Enterprise Server installations on 64bit versions of Windows Server. (DT 3562704, DT 7059449).
Workaround: Add performance monitoring counters manually after installation. For more information, visit the Knowledge
Base at blackberry.com/support to read article KB21534.
BlackBerry MDS Connection Service
BlackBerry MDS Connection Service does not establish a connection if the web server is set up to use TCP PAC file
processing and the proxy address returned is an IP address rather than an FQDN. (DT 8980289).
Workaround: Create the appropriate entries in DNS so a host name is used and update the PAC file.
BlackBerry Management Studio / BlackBerry Web Services
After applying BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0 SP4 MR8, you cannot execute "getReportData" calls. (JI 712919 ).
BlackBerry Resource Kit
After applying BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0 SP4 MR10, you cannot delete users with BESUserAdminClient.exe. (JI
816498).
