Default BES 4.1.x installation

Please Login to Remove!

In the installation guide RIM says I have do something to Exchange IS.. giving whatever they are asking Send As and Recieve AS rights. So they mean the Besadmin account, as its not too clear what they are asking.

Secondly, I am running SQL 2000 Server, the sa account it setup by default, do I have to create a besmgt DB or does the installation do all that once it talks to SQL server?

Thanks
Andrew

Yes, the BESadmin account must have sendas/recieveas permisions on all BB user mailboxes (easiest to just apply it to the user OU.)

As for the SQL question, I honestly can't remember how we did it. I want to say that my DBA created the DB and I connected the BES to it. I know that with MSDE, the BES installation creates it... sorry I am not more help on that one.

It depends on your permissions. Personally, I'd just set the BESAdmin account for SysAdm access to the server (master) and let the installation do it's job.

If you ever migrate the database to a new server, in order to recreate certain system tables, you'll copy the \Database folder from the installation package and run 'createdb.exe besmgmt.cfg' to create the database then install as normal (or change databases through the BlackBerry Server Configuration application).

With that said, it's really up to you on what to do initially. I find it easier to allow the installer to do it's magic, but you need to make sure you have the DOMAIN\BESAdmin account added and the SysAdm role configured for it.
