BES 4.0 SP2 for Exchange now available
 
http://www.blackberry.com/support/downloads/

(Also, SP6 is available for BESX 3.6)

Functional Changes:
Time zone mappings for time zones not supported by CDO for Microsoft Windows
To prevent meeting appointments that occur in time zones not supported by CDO for Microsoft Windows from displaying incorrectly, you must manually map unsupported time zones to CDO for Microsoft Windows time zones. (SDR 49822)

Note: This functional change applies to BlackBerry Enterprise Server 4.0 SP2 only.

MAPI call tracking and statistics reporting added to BlackBerry Enterprise Server logs
The BlackBerry Enterprise Server now tracks MAPI calls to the Microsoft Exchange Server and writes MAPI statistics to the BlackBerry® Messaging Agent log. (SDR 36952)

Ability to customize the interval for resending pending messages
You can configure the number of days for which the BlackBerry Enterprise Server resends messages that are not received on BlackBerry Wireless Handhelds™. Any messages that the BlackBerry Enterprise Server cannot send in that time frame expire. (SDR 55544)

Ability to save BlackBerry Manager SQL authentication credentials
You can save the SQL username and password when using SQL authentication for the BlackBerry Manager, so you are not prompted to enter the SQL credentials when you open the BlackBerry Manager. (SDR 45346)

Ability to turn on JavaScript™, style sheets, and HTML tables in the BlackBerry Mobile Data Service browser.
BlackBerry Handheld Software 4.0 SP2 turns off JavaScript, style sheets, and HTML tables in the Mobile Data Service browser. If your internal Intranet or web-based Mobile Data Service applications require this functionality, you can turn it on this using an IT policy. (SDR 47875)

Ability to parse WML in accordance with WAP-WML version 1.3 specifications.
The Mobile Data Service browser opens a WML script that is not well-formed or does not comply with WAP-WML. The text or link related to the non-compliant script does not display in the browser. In its place, an error message that describes the WML syntax error appears. (SDR 35426, SDR 31757, SDR 31272)

SDR 50393
When you configure the BlackBerry Manager to refresh the user list automatically, and a user property window is open when an automatic refresh occurs, the BlackBerry Manager terminates unexpectedly.

Workaround: Set the refresh rate to a higher number.

SDR 46334
When you add three 5-user SBE licenses to the BlackBerry Manager and apply a 5-user SBE upgrader license, the upgrader does not upgrade the licenses. The “The existing license permits a maximum of 15 users. The license key would exceed the limit and thus cannot be added to the license manager" message displays in the BlackBerry Manager.

SDR 42694
If, in the BlackBerry Manager you turn off S/MIME encryption for signed and weakly encrypted messages, you must restart the BlackBerry Enterprise Server for the changes to take effect.

i'm kind of mad that two of my open SDR issues did not make the known issues list... :-)

greywolfe 07-28-2005 01:33 AM

Anyone tested this yet?

Also, I love how all SP1 hotfixes have been removed from the Blackberry download site :P

stevenyc 07-28-2005 02:12 AM

SDR 54570
If you provision a handheld at the administration computer using the BlackBerry Handheld Configuration Tool and message prepopulation is configured in the BlackBerry Manager, all messages, instead of the number of messages that you configured, prepopulate on to the handheld.

They're "fixing" this? This is something my users and I all want, not a bug to be fixed. How do I make this happen all the time?

greywolfe 07-28-2005 02:45 AM

And I love how the timezone issue is still a manual workaround

Korbyn 07-28-2005 02:55 PM

Guess they aren't supporting the new CDO.dll 7233.0 and 7233.28, or even list it as a known issue when accepting meeting requests on the BB and getting a red X about 10 seconds after having a checkmark. Explaining that to 300+ users that nothing is wrong and don't worry about the X in this case...

i installed it on our test server. no issues yet, but that was only about 3 hours ago.

greywolfe 07-28-2005 07:05 PM

We'll probably start testing this today as well. Rollout to clients wont be for a while though.

Optus customers should expect to have it thrust upon them right away however -_-

Bluepill 07-29-2005 09:28 AM

Loaded it Yesterday! Everything seems to be working fine. It only 8:30 AM though.

T-Roy 07-29-2005 10:05 AM

Did you notice that Windows Server 2003 SP1 is required (if your using Server 2003) and if not, you need to apply MDAC 2.8 SP1.

TroyB 07-29-2005 03:04 PM

Yea, I noticed that as well. That's different than it was for SP1. We're not currently using SP1 on Server 2003.

Anyone install this on a non-SP1 Server 2003 machine and have success?

x14 07-29-2005 05:24 PM

Found this on RIM Knowledgebase.

Summary
This article applies to the following:

BlackBerry Enterprise Server™ version 4.0 Service Pack 1 and Service Pack 2
Integration with Microsoft® Exchange
Microsoft Windows® 2003 Service Pack 1
SDR55259


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Problem
When you upgrade the BlackBerry Enterprise Server version 4.0 Service Pack 1 to version 4.0 Service Pack 2 on a computer running Windows 2003 Service Pack 1, the upgrade fails and you receive the following message:

Some files that need to be updated are currently in use.


The file listed in use is BlackBerry Enterprise Server Installation.

The BlackBerry Manager log displays the following:

TServerManagerImpExch::OpenServiceInterface - OpenService failed, The specified service does not exist as an installed service. 0x424, ServiceName='BBUserAdminService'


Workaround
Click Ignore to continue the upgrade.

This is a previously reported issue that has been escalated internally to our development team. No resolution time frame is currently available.

JRV 07-30-2005 08:26 PM

Does BES4 SP2 upgrade JRE to the current version?

jibi 07-30-2005 08:38 PM

It has JRE 1.4.2_08 included with the install. I already updated to that version, so I'm not sure if it does or not. Just to note that the issue with the memory leak is due to something more than just JRE 1.4.2_03. I installed the JRE update to 1.4.2_08 and still got the OutOfMemory errors. RIM said that it was assigned to SDR 61214, although I'm not sure how/where to check the status of an SDR (if anyone knows, please post).

JRV 07-30-2005 09:25 PM

Thanks. Sorry to hear the memory leak still isn't fixed. Know of any reason why I shouldn't install JRE 1.5.0.04 with BES? (I saw your post on the registry change required.)

jibi 07-30-2005 09:32 PM

I don't see any reason why you shouldn't. RIM stated that 1.5.0 was an upgrade path that could be taken and supported, so why not.

greywolfe 07-31-2005 08:07 PM

Well previous versions of BES have been known to not install on anything but 1.4, but if this installs ok with 1.5 then I dont see why not...

jibi 08-01-2005 12:37 AM

Just be sure to change the startup parameter for the MDS service, else it'll just fail.

Good question. Why does it require Win2K3 SP1? anyone know? or has anyone upgraded to SP2 with Win2K3 SP1?

Also, Jibi, What registry change do I need to make if upgrading to JRE 1.5 I couldn't find what was discussed here by searching.
