SDR 39808
Previously, when users attempted to log in to Microsoft .net passport on the handheld, the HTML content that was requested was recognized by the Mobile Data Service web server as WML (text/vnd.wap.wml), which caused the Mobile Data Service to send an HTTP 500 error message to the handheld.

SDR 39757

Previously, in certain circumstances, when performing a wireless activation, the Browser Channels database might not have been restored.

Wireless calendar synchronization
SDR 38626
Previously, in certain circumstances, recurring appointments that contained Chinese characters in the subject, location, and notes fields could not be deleted from the handheld wirelessly.

SDR 38237
Previously, if an invitee made a change to a recurring meeting from the handheld, the change did not synchronize on the desktop.

BlackBerry Configuration Panel
SDR 47641
In certain circumstances, if the “Debug Log Maximum Daily file Age” setting is set to 1 for some components in the BlackBerry Configuration Panel, and the date on the BlackBerry Enterprise Server computer is moved ahead two days, the BlackBerry Enterprise Server saves three days of logs instead of two days.

SDR 36471
When modifying the configuration settings for the Attachment Service, clicking Apply does not apply the changes and the Configuration Panel does not prompt you to restart the Attachment Service.
Workaround: Restart the Attachment Service in the BlackBerry Manager.

SDR 46334
When three 5 user SMB licenses are added to the BlackBerry Manager and a 5 user SMB upgrader license is applied, the upgrader will not upgrade the licenses and displays a "The existing license permits a maximum of 15 users. The license key would exceed the limit and thus cannot be added to the license manager" message in the BlackBerry Manager.

SDR 41881
When setting the “Automatically refresh user list every” setting on the Advanced tab of the BlackBerry Manager Properties to a value other than None, the user list is not updated to reflect the users’ current statistics. In addition, right-clicking a user within the user list, and then clicking Refresh does not update the user’s statistics.

When assigning an IT policy that contains custom policy rules to a handheld that previously had an IT policy assigned, the IT policy fails to be sent to the handheld and an error is written to the Policy Service logs.
Workaround: Make the handheld unavailable and delete all stored information, assign the custom IT policy to the user, and reactivate the handheld.
Note: Backup all handheld information before making the handheld unavailable and deleting all stored information.

BlackBerry Router
SDR 42551
In certain circumstances, the BlackBerry Router does not start properly after being restarted.
Workaround: At the command prompt on the computer on which the BlackBerry Router is installed, type BlackberryRouter.exe –remove, and then type BlackberryRouter.exe –install.

Setup program
SDR 49921
The registry key, HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Research In Motion\BlackBerry Enterprise Server\Servers\<Servername>\SendWindowInDays, does not perform properly when created; therefore, the expiry time for messages not received on the handheld cannot be modified.

SDR 37897
In certain circumstances, if you assign and activate two different users on separate BlackBerry Enterprise Servers that both use the same configuration database, the user’s PIN might not synchronize between the desktop and the database correctly.

Wireless calendar synchronization
SDR 45992

I've been working with SP1 for just over a week now. Yes it does fix a few things but there are still a number of ongoing problems and it also introduces some new issues also:

1. An inherent problem with policy settings not working. You will need to check all policy settings such as the security settings and password settings.
2. Blackberry Manager MMC crashes when you select User Properties - There is a workaround for this.
3. Calendar scheduling problems.
4. Spurrious error messages in Event Viewer.

Should I go on.....?

I've just upgraded to SP1. Everythings running ok, but when I try to load the Handheld Configuration tool I get:

"System problem - please review log for additional information. Database connection pool failed to initialize"

Have I missed something somewhere ?

I can't believe thay havent fixed this. What is the point of having a custom IT policy if you have to deactivate, re-format, and redeploy every handheld you want to have a custom policy? This might seem minor, but custom policies are very important to third part applications.. so Why am I surprised they didnt fix it.


*BlackBerry Policy Service*
/SDR 44122/
When assigning an IT policy that contains custom policy rules to a handheld that previously had an IT policy assigned, the IT policy fails to be sent to the handheld and an error is written to the Policy Service logs.
*Workaround:* Make the handheld unavailable and delete all stored information, assign the custom IT policy to the user, and reactivate the handheld.
*Note:* Backup all handheld information before making the handheld unavailable and deleting all stored information.

rpfeffer 04-18-2005 08:31 AM

should Hot fix 1 and 2 be installed before upgrading to SP1?

bfrye 04-18-2005 08:32 AM

most likely

exiled 04-18-2005 09:05 AM

So is it reccomended we apply this? Seems to be causing issues.

I haven't applied the hotfixes yet, i suppose i'll do that first before the SP

I'm wondering the same thing. Is it worth applying the Service pack if it has all these issues?

Dahood 04-18-2005 12:02 PM

There are lots of issues still apparent with the product. Allegedly hotfix 1 and 2 is contained within service pack 1. I am constantly noticing lots of different sporadic instances of problems with BES 4.0, the hideous hotfixes 1 and 2 and now the Service Pack. I have sent RIM a detailed description of all problems and they have conceded that most of the issues they have been able to replicate/know about. I'm now waiting for resolution.

Can you let us know what they get back to you with? We do have several error and warning messages that constantly show up in the error log that we didn't have when we were using BES version 3.6. Let us know and Good luck! :)

jibi 04-18-2005 12:47 PM

HF1 and HF2 are included in SP1 - they would not need to be installed prior to SP1 unless it is specified (which it is not). The Known Issues that still exist with SP1 are still present in 4.0 OEM or HF1 and HF1 patches. The Unknown Issues (which are not listed because they are not known) will be something new to SP1 that may or may not be included with OEM, HF1 or HF2, as it always is with any patch update.

Dahood 04-18-2005 02:08 PM

rpfeffer if you let us know what errors are being generated then I may be able to assist.

rpfeffer 04-18-2005 03:32 PM

I made a thread about it before

Dahood 04-18-2005 06:09 PM

I am currently experiencing some of your issues such as:

"[SYNC-DSession] Recieved empty add for backup's recipient Cache."

Backup is disabled yet I am seeing loads of these errors. RIM are currently investigating.

Will let you know more in due course

rpfeffer 04-22-2005 01:42 PM

If no one else is having major problems with this SP1 update, I may go ahead and upgrade to it next week. Wish me luck. I'll let you all know of any issues I come across.

jibi 04-22-2005 01:49 PM

I did have an issue with the Lookup function. However, I updated to SP1 HF1 and rebooted and that issue cleared up (likely with the reboot not the SP1 HF1 update). I really didn't bother looking into the issue, as it was resolved after the reboot. Honestly, it probably had nothing to do with SP1. But this is the only issue I've had since (aside from the not-to-worry-about event log errors).

rpfeffer 05-02-2005 02:50 PM

I'm sitting on this. We're not having any issues, so it is not worth it.

djbeenie 05-04-2005 05:02 PM

Good deed. I will apply this patch this week. Thanks Jibi! :)

cayzac 05-04-2005 05:22 PM

I installed it yesterday, no problems. I also installed the Hotfix for SP1, again no problems.
