Default Remote Blackberry Manager

Please Login to Remove!

On a remote install of the blackberry Manager it is recommended that the blackberry manager be on the same service pack and hotfixes as the bes servers. I understand that Cdo.dll on exchange and bes should be the same but should the CDO.DLL be the same on the remote install also or does this not matter as its not actually being used for calendar or email ?

It doesn't really matter.
MAPI is really only used by BlackBerry Manager when sending the activation password to the end user via email.

In an Exchange environment, since the Remote BES Manager is likely going to have Outlook installed and configured, then MAPI is already set up anyway.

You can do a remote BES Manager install without MAPI, but you'll just be missing some handy features.

Multiple BES Servers all the same cdo.
Numerous Remote Bes managers on Help Desk techs workstations with varied Outlook versions and hence cdo versions. No problems. (With that at least)
