I'm currently running a project to move the BlackBerry services to a new server (Hardware upgrade)
This is want I did...
Logged into the new server (Windows 2000) as the service account created in the ADS for the Blackberry service. Installed MSDE Rela on the new server and SQL 2000 Enterprise management. Also installed Exchange 2003 management tools to get the correct CDO.DLL.
Disabled MSDE on the old server copied BESMgmt.ldf and BESMgmt.mdf to the new server. Opened enterprise Manager and attached the copied database, Opened the "ServerConfig" table and changed the "ServiceName" and "MachineName" to reflex the new server name.
I then disable all BlackBerry services on the old server and disable MCSE on the old server rebooted. After the old server was rebooted I double checked to make sure that the services etc will infact disabled.
Back to the new server I installed BlackBerry enterprise server (Typical installation). I pointed to the BESMgmt on the new server (same server as the MSDE server), tested the connectivity to the database which passed, then setup the email instance, check the SRP information was brought accross and test the SRP which passed, tested host connectivity back to BackBerry this also passed.
Opened up BlackBerry manager which connected error free to the database and showed the correct user base etc, also checked that all services were running correctly.
I grabbed my handheld and create a new email, the email was delivered without error. I then attempted to send an email to the handheld, this is where things went wrong, although everything looked good ie: all the services etc try as I might I would not get email to a hand held.
I ran out of time to I backed out of the process, and went back to the old server.
Any have any idea's why I might be getting single direction commucation?
Thanks in advance
