We are getting ready to go to Exchange 2007 SP1 next month. We currently have a stand alone BES 4.1.4 MR3 on a 2003 SP2 server in production connecting to a Exchange 2003 SP2 server. I am taking notes as I read this post, but my question is if everything goes well at the server after we move all the mailboxes to a new Exchange 2007 server uninstall esm from 2003, install the esm equivalent from 2007, and set the permissions, what will the clients see on their end? Will we have to enterprise activate all of the users again once the new 2007 Exchange server is in place? Will their email dissappear? I am assuming they won't be able to reply to any of their email that is on their device stamped with the old exchange server as the source? I know email on the Blackberry is just a mirror of what is in Outlook but just checking.

Thanks

The clients won't notice anything if the migration is done correctly. You should use the mailbox move wizard ... make sure permissions are properly set and you'll be fine.

It is worth noting that Exchange 2007 SP1 is not yet officially supported by RIM, however many people here have had great success (myself included) with it.

I have searched and read the full post and not sure were to go,

We have an current exchange 2003 server, current windows 2003 with BES installed (4.1.4.15), and we just added an exchange 2007 server (sp1). My device was working great on the 2003 exchange and BES, but last night as part of our testing we moved my mailbox to the new exchange 2007 server. (the bes server still has the exchange 2003 ESM on it). The BES mailbox is still on exchange 2003.

Now my device will not sync, will not activate wirelessly, it won't do anything. We have removed me from the BES, whiped the device and still will not activate wirelessly.

On the BES console I see my mailbox, and it lists the server as the new 2007 Exchange server.

I am going to try to ativate it with the cable and see if that makes a difference.

I thought I had the permissions set right on the Exchange 2007 server but I will try to check them as well.

When trying to wirelessly activate the device I get an error stating the server was not responding.

Any thoughts or help would be great, we have a small group that use BES, so if someone says, "just update the CDO/MAPI on the BES server and migrate your other users to 2007 and all will work" i might be able to try that.

Thanks
Dan

Just to confirm; if I'm doing a side-by-side upgrade of my Exchange servers from 2003 to 2007, I can have the servers running in parallel but Blackberry users can only be on 2003 OR 2007 but not both, right?

Will have to modify my migration plan a bit to accomodate the BB users and testing...

I would try running the handheld cleanup tool on your BES first before you do anything else. It located in the tools folder.

They can be on both but you must be careful when it comes to what version of mapi and cdo is on the BES and Exchange boxes to avoid calendar issues. You would want them to be consistent.

Now that 4.1.5 officially supports x64, I was wondering if its ok to have Exchange 2007 SP1 and BES 4.1.5 on the same server. I already have BES installed on a 32-bit server but would much rather have it running off the same Exchange Server.

Would appreciate if someone could whip up a quick tutorial or link to it.

BES + Exchange on the same server = not supported

BPS + Exchange on the same server = supported

Hi,

I did all the steps as written but am getting an error back with:

MAPIMailbox::CreateSearchFolder - Open Entry (0x80070005) failed
RPC command failed - no connection to BES Agent

for a user on the Exchange 2007 server.

I've run through the permissions settings a hundred times and cannot see what the error might be...

Help if possible?

Thanks.

get-mailboxserver <mail_server_name> | add-adpermission –user BESAdmin –accessrights ExtendedRight –extendedrights Send-As, Receive-As, ms-Exch-Store-Admin

5. Stop all the Blackberry services and remove ESM for Exchange 2003 from your BES server. Or unregister mapi32.dll and cdo.dll if the files had just been registered manually without installing ESM.

I was having this issue as well but this step:

BlackBerry Search Results

seemed to work:

Resolve the MAPI profile for the BESAdmin mailbox on the Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 by going to Start > Programs > BlackBerry Enterprise Server > Edit the MAPI.

For some reason, the following step didn't take the first time around and after referring to:

I reapplied the command:

Quote:
get-mailboxserver Exchange2007 | add-adpermission -user <BESAdmin> -accessrights GenericRead, GenericWrite -extendedrights Send-As, Receive-As, ms-Exch-Store-Admin
and things started to work.

Thumbs down Exchange 2007 compatibility

Gary,
Awesome post on the installation instructions. I have a questions concerning our migration and am having a hard time finding quite what I'm looking for. So we had BES 4.0.3 with Exch 2000 and just upgraded to Exch 2007. Is my BES compatible?

This is my current setup and planning for introducing excahnge 2007

I have two BES servers, both at 4.1 SP4 latest MR
DB for BES is hosted on a seperate box

Exchange 2003 SP2

I am planning to install exchange 2007 as following

1. Install & setup exchange 2007

2. Migrate users to your Exchange 2007 server

3. From the Exchange 2007 server open the xxx8220;Exchange Management Shellxxx8221; which can be found in the Exchange program group. From EMS run the following two scripts to set the delegate control and required permissions:

get-mailboxserver <mail_server_name> | add-exchangeadministrator BESAdmin xxx8211;role ViewOnlyAdmin

get-mailboxserver <mail_server_name> | add-adpermission xxx8211;user BESAdmin xxx8211;accessrights ExtendedRight xxx8211;extendedrights Send-As, Receive-As, ms-Exch-Store-Admin

4. Stop all the Blackberry services and remove ESM for Exchange 2003 from ONE BES server. lets call it BES02 Or unregister mapi32.dll and cdo.dll if the files had just been registered manually without installing ESM.

5. Download and install Microsoft Exchange Server MAPI Client and Collaboration Data Objects 1.2.1 BES02.

6. Restart BES server.

so all users that I migrate to Exchange 2007, move their mailboxes to BES02 server

should i move them to BES02 prior to moving them to exchange 2007 and making changes to cdo and mapi32 ? Or After mailbox move to exchange 2007 and cdo and mapi32 update on BES02 ?

Talked with RIM tech support and they say that new MAPI client DOES have backward compatibility and will work just fine with BES users having mailbox on Exchange 2003 server. Can anyone comment?

Default The Calendar Mystery I am unable to answer!!!

Hello All,

I am having the time of my life with this issue that will not GO AWAY!!!!

BES -------> Calendar (Cant invite, wont update, And somehow the boss is also having issues with his Contacts not syncing).

BES 4.1.6.14 (On a virtual machine Win2k3 R2 SP2, Xeon Processior, 1.5 GB Ram)
Exchange 2007 SP1 (On a stand-alone Machine, Win2K3 R2 Standard x64 SP2, Duel Xeon Processior 2.66 GHZ, 4GB Ram)

I have installed everything correctly, including following everything bit by bit, even went back and read this post and made sure I didnt leave anything out, and have done the permissions. I am maybe thinking I should redo the permissions, but how do you Remove all permissions from an account and then re-add them?

Now a couple messsages I get in the logs that I will pass on to everyone looking!

Blackberry Dispatcher: [BIPPe] WARNING: Using default BIPP shared secret ( have heard this is normal)

Blackberry Controller: [CFG] Controller won't generate userdump files. Userdump.exe not found.

Blackberry Policy Service: SCS::InitializeSystem - ITAdminQueue HealthCheck found issues

Blackberry Policy Service: SCS::RequeueInProgressCommands - 2 commands were requeued

Blackbery Policy Service: [BIPPe] WARNING: Using default BIPP shared secret

Blackberry Synchronization Service: [BIPPe] WARNING: Using default BIPP shared secret

Exchange Connector: [BIPPe] WARNING: Using default BIPP shared secret

and a whole bunch of different Blackberry Messaging agent Messages... Its almost like the Agent isnt working correctly!


I really could use some help with this. I am not using SQL, I am just using what it came wiht and installed for me, as at the time I did not have an SQL Server available.

If there is anymore please let me know and I will respond right away!

Thank you again!

James

Under Exchange 2007 SP1 the following commands are not supported (even with the correct server name in its place)

Can you please break down the commands and tell me what exactly you want are saying?

get-mailboxserver <mail_server_name> | add-exchangeadministrator BESAdmin –role ViewOnlyAdmin

get-mailboxserver <mail_server_name> | add-adpermission –user BESAdmin –accessrights ExtendedRight –extendedrights Send-As, Receive-As, ms-Exch-Store-Admin

The cmdlet tells me the "Get-MailboxServer" doesn't support the "|" ...


Thanks

break these commands like this

add-exchangeadministrator BESAdmin –role ViewOnlyAdmin

following worked ok , replace the test in < > with correct values from your exchange , BES configuration

get-mailboxserver <mail_server_name> | add-adpermission –user <BESAdmin> –accessrights ExtendedRight –extendedrights Send-As, Receive-As, ms-Exch-Store-Admin
