Default Should I rebuild my BES install

Please Login to Remove!


We currently use BES Express 4.1 (Exchange 2003) on a small scale (14 users). Everything is working as it should - except for Blackberry to Outlook calender syncing. Mail syncs ok, tasks sync ok, calender entries sync Outlook to Blackberry but not the other way.

After a few hours investigation, messing with permissions in AD etc I still have not got Calender syncing working both ways. I've also noticed the Blackberry services are all started with the Administrator account - and not the BESAdmin account. I've tried to change the services to start with the BESAdmin account but was unable to do this. I realise that it is bad practice to start the services with the administrator account.

So - my question is - would it be worthwhile uninstalling BES, and reinstalling it - but this time with the BESAdmin account as the service account? If this IS the best course of action - would I have to re authenticate all the devices to the newly installed server?

Any help or advice would be great
