Hi everyone, this is my first post here and really my first experience with blackberry servers. We have been primarily a windows mobile shop with a few iphones and other devices. We have always strayed from blackberries because of the cost of a BES, but we are fed up with the WinMobile phones and are looking into running the BPS on our exchange server. It seems like a great option. However, i'm running into two issues when at the Preinstallation Checklist. We are running Windows 2003 SP2 64 bit with Exchange 2007 SP2. I am trying to install BPS 4.1.4.
The first one says "Mismatched Microsoft Data Access Component (MDAC) versions are recorded in the registry" I ran the component checker from MS and it returned a mismatch on MSXML3.dll. The current version is 8.100.1048.0 and the expected version is 8.80.11850.0. I'm thinking this is not that big of deal since the current version is higher than the expected.
The second issue is saying "The setup application could not verify the Microsoft Exchange Permissions for the Microsoft Windows account. Before you continue, verify that the permissions are correct."
I have followed the "Getting Started Guide" for BPS to a T. I'm not sure what i've missed to get that. I have:
- Created the "besadmin" account
- Added the account to the local admin group
- Ran the two commands in the Exch Management shell (ViewOnlyAdmin and ExtendedRights)
- Gave besadmin "send as" permission at the root of the domain
These 4 steps seem to be the only items that would throw this error, but i've done them all. Any ideas or help would be much appreciated.
