I am trying to change a permission on the adminsdholder container so that the domain admins can use their Blackberry's (some info on this can be seen here:  http://lyris.sunbelt-software.com/read/messages?id=557523)

I am running the command as so:  dsacls "cn=adminsdholder,cn=system,dc=la,dc=domain,dc=com"/g "\BESAdmin:CA;Send As"

our domain is like this:  la.domain.com

Now every time I try and run this from a DC I get the following output:  The Format of the specified domain is invalid.

Any ideas?

To correct the "Send As" issue I have outlined the steps I use to quickly resolve this issue:

1. Stop the Blackberry Router service.

2. Open Active Directory and from the View menu select "Advanced Features". Then go to each user that will be added to the BES and open their properties, go to the security tab and add the user BESadmin and add the security permission "Send As".

3. Run the following script logged on as Administrator (This allows admin users to send):

dsacls "cn=adminsdholder,cn=system,dc=domainname,dc=c om " /G "DOMAINNAME\BESadmin:CA;Send As"

Example 1: dsacls "cn=adminsdholder,cn=system,dc=experts-exchange,dc=com " /G "EXPERTS_EXCHANGE\BESadmin:CA;Send As"

Example 2: dsacls "cn=adminsdholder,cn=system,dc=blackberryforums,dc =com,dc=au " /G "BLACKBERRYFORUMS\BESadmin:CA;Send As"

Example 3: dsacls "cn=adminsdholder,cn=system,dc=mobilenetwork,dc=lo cal" /G "MOBILENETWORK\BESadmin:CA;Send As"

NOTE: dsacls can be found in the Windows Server 2003 SP1 Support Tools pack:

4. Wait 20 minutes and then restart the BlackBerry Router service.

5. Restart the BES server.
