Default Installing Blackberry manager on a computer other than BES

Please Login to Remove!

Hi,

Is it possible to install the BES Blackberry Manager on a computer other than the actual BES server to allow remote administration without connecting to the BES server?

Totally, it's a feature of 4.1 . If you have 4.1, just run the install on the remote machine and just choose the BlackBerry Manager option. Point it at your server and viola.

You haven't said Domino or Exchange so in case it's Domino and your client is v8

Install BES Manager with Notes v8

Maybe this will help too. It's written for WIN2K, but still applies and works rather well.

Unforunately, it doesn't work on Windows Vista. Or it didn't when I moved to Vista. I'd be happy thats changed by now.

BB Manager still not working for me on Vista. Do I get Blackberry-cred for going back to XP purely because BB manager wouldn't work?
