Default Company Blackberries having issues syncing with Exchange Server

Please Login to Remove!


One of my clients runs a small business with about 12 employees, 3 of which are using Blackberries on Sprint. They need the Blackberries to wirelessly two-way sync their emails, contacts, tasks, and calendar.

The old IT guy set up a Windows 2008 Small Business Server running Exchange Server. He also set up Blackberry Enterprise Server on that same server (not sure if it is the Lite version or not because the company does not recall paying for the Enterprise software).

They are having issues wirelessly syncing their Blackberries with the exchange server. For one device, emails have synced in the past but stopped syncing and calendars and tasks do not sync at all. The other Blackberries do not sync period.

The old IT guy said that something was corrupt and he 'fixed' it which is very vague and told the client that it was now working properly, but that is clearly not the case.

My expertise with Blackberries and Blackberry Enterprise Server is nonexistent and I am just trying to help this guy out.

Could somebody please guide me in troubleshooting their issues?

Thanks in advance!

Could be loads of things. SRP not connected, services not running, could even be good old fashioned remove the user and readd them back on or resend the service books.

Have you checked the data connection the Blackberrys? Make sure they have Capital GPRS, Capital EDGE or 3G:

First step check the connection on the numbers

Might be worth checking all the blackberry services are running in Admin tools. Check the SRP is connected and then try adding a test user on and off and reactivate them that way. Least then we can see the logs as I am guessing they don;t know when they last had an email to know which date of the logs to look at.

Once we have email working again then we can look at permissions and see why if they are still not getting PIM sync to the blackberrys. They may even have turned off wireless reconsile for Personal information on the actual devices.

Hope that helps.
