DBClean basically cleans the users PST file(s) and re-builds the MAPI profile on the users computer, this is typically used when having connection issues while running on a BES.

it actually just removes the hidden information in a user's Exchange mailbox. it uses a MAPI profile for the connection. it should not touch the user's PST file.

I know you have to run it on a machine with the user's profile, but do you always have to use it? We have several floaters that get passed around. Do I need to run dbclean everytime I get a device back from a user?

No !

DBclean removes BlackBerry information from hidden files on the MS Exchange server. The user account must be removed from the BES prior to running it against the users default MAPI profile ie from their desktop.

It is a potentially dangerous utility used for only specific reasons. Please do not use this utility without knowing what it is for, and even then consult a BlackBerry professional for consultation.

And you usually need to run it a couple of times, a bit like handheldcleanup.

You spoiler!
I have been watching this thread in anticipation of the idiot who was going to post;
"I just ran DBclean.exe on the BES machine, I was hoping it would fix all my users issues, now nothing works"
Just for a good ol' belly chuckle. LOL

RIMemployee is right people!
DBclean.exe is a nasty little database killer that should be treated with a great deal of respect.
