Default BES 4.1 SP5/SP5 OTASL: Wireless device software updates / Enterprise Upgrade. How?

Please Login to Remove!


I am trying to get the Wireless device software upgrade to work, but cannot get it done. Here is my testing environment:
  • Windows 2003 SP2
  • Domino 7.0.3 / BES 4.1 SP5
  • BlackBerry 8700 handheld ( and BlackBerry 8820 handheld (

What i did:
  • activated 2 users on the test BES
  • installed updated versions of the 4.5.x device software for 8700 and 8820 on my BES
  • created 2 software configurations, 1 which has the 8700 files selected and 1 which have the 8820 files selected.
  • assigned the 8700 software configuration to the 8700 device and assigned the 8820 software config to the 8820 user.
  • checked the wireless software upgrades policy, all set to default
  • used options > advanced options > wireless upgrade to check for updates
    on both devices
  • tried to use the Deploy Software function from the BlackBerry Manager, but that did not make a difference

Whatever i try, the device keeps telling me there are no updates available. I have waited for 12 hours to see if BES would push the new version by itself, but that didnt happen.

Am i doing something wrong? I have searched for documentation on how to set this up, only found this in the Policy Reference guide for 4.1.6:

Wireless Software Upgrades policy group
Allow Non Enterprise Upgrade IT policy rule
This rule specifies whether to permit Research In Motion® or the wireless service provider to request that the BlackBerry®
device download wireless software upgrades.
Default setting
The default setting is False.
Minimum requirements
• Java® based BlackBerry device
• BlackBerry® Device Software Version 4.5
• BlackBerry® Enterprise Server Version 4.1 SP4
It only speaks about NON enterprise upgrade. No word about enterprise upgrade.

RIM built the shell in 4.1.5 but there's nothing inside

Is OTASL realized in BES 4.1.5 already?
