Hi

We have a single server setup with a Windows 2003 DC running Exchange 2003 SP1
I have installed BES 4.1.2 and setup as per the guide
Created a BESAdmin account, granted it send / recieve as permssions on entire DC, made it an exchange admin view only, gave it send as / recieve / administer info Store permssions on the Informatin store.

I have allowed port 3101 outbound on my firewall

I double checked this against the MS Knowledge base article 912918 where halfway down it lists the requirments.

Blackberry Manager opens and i have added my user account, i have clicked the option to generate and send an activation password which arrives in my account, i then put the password in Enterprise activation on my device, i then get an etp message in my inbox.

On the device it just stays on activatiing and then about 20 mins later i get a message on device "The server is not responding please contact your system Administrator"

I then get another etp message appear in my inbox.

Anyine got any ideas, is there a log file that will tell me why its failing

Thanks

Nick

If you are seeing the messages from the Blackberry appear in your inbox then either the message is being tampered with en-route (AV, Antispam firewall etc) or (most likely) you don't have the permissions configured correctly.

Any reason you are still on Exchange 2003 SP1? SP2 is almost two years old. I would strongly suggest an upgrade.

Is the account that you are trying to use an Administrator or domain admin?

Can you active it with usb cable directly connect to base?

You could, but I wouldn't recommend it. If the wireless activation doesn't work, then the day to day operation most likely will not work as well. They are all using the same process.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Guys thanks for getting back to me, I am planning to upgrade to sp2 shortly, i tried making the Besadmin account a member of the domain admins but that did not help.

Im going to try stopping sophos and Pure message to see if that helps, ill come back if not

Thanks
