Default Changing SSID password for BES Wifi profile

Please Login to Remove!


I'm still pretty new with BES admin, and I want to make sure how Wifi profile changes will filter down to devices.

Current setup:
- Wifi profile contains SSID & password for office Wifi.
- Each user has the Wifi profile assigned to their account.

For security reasons we are looking to update our SSID password used for the Blackberry devices, and I want to be sure those changes filter down to the handhelds.

Will this happen automatically as devices check-in with the BES? So if I do this over the weekend, by the time users return to the office their devices will have the new password for the BB SSID?

If this doesn't happen automatically, I assume I'll just have to re-push service books to each device manually, is that correct?

Thank you,

-JohnC the newbie
