Guys, BEFORE you install or upgrade the BES, please do the following ...
READ THE MANUAL! System requirements for the BlackBerry Enterprise Server
Checklist: Operating system requirements - See Page 12
Install Microsoft Messaging Queue (MSMQ) version 3.0 (required for Microsoft Live Communications Server support). |
Note: If you install MSMQ separately from Windows Server 2003, clear the default Active Directory Integration and Triggers subcomponents and select only the Common subcomponent.
RIM went through a LOT of trouble to put together these nice little 'checklists' for us to mark off. Print them out and put checks and/or highlight when you complete the tasks, sequentially.
