Question HELP. Question regarding IT policy.

Please Login to Remove!

Hi BES-experts!

I have three questions:

a) How can I check if a BB is on BES?

b) If a BB is on BES, can actually an IT policy deny a third-party application browse to internet? How to check if a BB has that IT policy?

c) What happens in the following scenario: A BB is on BES, and the IT policy does not allow third-party application to browse internet. That BB is unlinked from BES. Will then the BB keep the IT policy that had when connected to BES?


THANKS

a) No good way to check. Look to see if you have any [Desktop] service books. That would be a fairly good indicator.

b) Yes, an IT policy can do that. You can't see individual policy settings. No way for you to tell what the policy settings are.

c) Yes, the handheld will keep the policy.

You can look for Desktop SB's. (Options -> Advanced Options -> Service Books)

Desktop [CMIME] is responsible for BES messaging
Desktop [CICAL] is for BES calendar
Desktop [SYNC] is responsible for sync

-> Open any or all of these 3 SB's
-> The UID field is the SRP ID from the BES

The IT Policy can usually be found in Options -> Securtiy Options -> General Settings
Scroll to the bottom. As the previous post indicated you will not see the specific IT Policy settings.
If there is something like "AES" or "Desktop" listed for Message services, this is a good indicatation whether or not the BlackBerry is on a BES.

Once an IT Policy is on a BlackBerry, it can only be modified by pushing a new one from the current BES or activating to a new BES and pushing a new Policy.

You can ONLY remove an IT Policy from a BlackBerry using "resettofactory" via loader.exe which is part of the BlackBerry Desktop software.

Hope this helps

I look at the Enterprise Activation screen - the email address will be filled in. The activation date will also be filled in, but that only shows the last time it was activated, not necessarily that it's still activated.

That is true. Now go through the other points and then send an email from the device using "Desktop". If it is sent and the reciepiant receives the email....poof! You might be a redneck.....wait no...I mean you're on a BES.


**The UID field in Desktop [CMIME] must have a Sxxxxx number
