As a note: On this new install of Server 2003 R2, BES is NOT installed yet!
Ok guys ... I have a REAL brain buster. I've exhausted all of my knowledge and I've called Blackberry support. They could not find a fix and simply told me "Good luck".
Here's the deal. I've installed 2 different machines with server 2003 R2. My goal is to setup a BES Server.
Here's my environment.
Srv1 -- Running Server 2008 64 bit, GC etc ... my main server
Srv2 -- Running Server 2008 64bit, Exchange 2007. Member server
Srv3 -- Runing Server 2003 R2. Nothing is installed on this box, it's a fresh install
Srv1 has Backup Exec, and I've installed the Mapi client + CDO on my exchange server, Backup exec is backing up mailboxes correctly as far as I can tell. So Mapi is working
On Srv3, after a brand new fresh install of 2003 R2, I download the Mapi client it, install it. I download MFCMAPI to test. I create a new profile. MfcMapi HANGS. Eventually, after about 10minutes, it will error saying there are communication problems connecting to exchange.
I have multiple (50+) machines, all of them running outlook 2003 and I have no problems with them connecting to exchange. I can setup besadmin on another machine, with outlook installed, and it will connect and resolve the mailbox fine.
One interesting note is if I add the GC under Exchange server when setting up the profile, click Check Name, it will resolve and underline everything and change the server to srv2. This is correct, however mfcmapi will hang. It's almost like a mapi problem on server 2003. I can't pin point it.
On the exchange server, the mapi32.dll files in windows\system32 and windows\syswow64 are ver 1.0.2536.0 Product version: 6.0.6000.16386
On my server 2003 R2 server, the mapi32.dll file in windows\system32 is: 1.0.2536.0 Product Version 5.2.3790.3959.
I've followed Blackbery instructions I don't know how many times. Same for the guide Gary Cutri typed up.
I'm at a loss. I don't think it's a problem with BES ... but a Mapi problem somehow?
Any ideas. Like I said I've exhausted ALL of my knowledge and resources. I've spent 2+hrs on the phone with BES and they are at a loss.
Could it be Message Block signing problems with 2003 vs 2008? I don't know =(
