Thanks for the clarification; I have uninstalled all three. I hid two of them from future install but KB981852 isn't coming up as a possible update, but I don't see it installed either. Not sure whats up with that. Perhaps it is really still installed? I know for sure I found and uninstalled it once and can no longer see it installed.
Still, after a reboot, when bas_as.exe loads, it first gets up to about 100MB of ram and sits there for a few mins. Then it starts using most of the cpu and the ram it is using increases constantly until we hit about 350MB then it tanks.
I thought perhaps more ram would help so I increased the ram on the VM frrom 2 gigs to 3 gigs so now there is some spare memory available when bas_as.exe gets to 350MB (perhaps 750MB spare ram) but still it tanks at 350 MB. So I don't think it is a ram issue. I do have exchange 2010, BES_X 5.02 and BAS all installed on the same VM. I know some people have had memory usage issues with this setup but not the crashing from what I have read so far. Plus, if I stop the bas-as.exe service, then everything else runs fine. I only have 6 exchange users and really only want to have 6 blackberries connected to this thing (currently I have zero) and don't think I should need to have the 7 server install some people mention. If that is really necessary for 6 users, then the blackberry developers are doing something very wrong.
My host is windows 2008 running vmware server 2.02 with 8 gigs of ram. I have other VMs for DC and VPN etc also running and the host sits at about 7GB of memory in use now that the exchange/BES_X VM is up to 3 GB ram. It has a 3ghz quad xeon processor using around 27% cpu.
