Blackberry Controller Won't Start

I have the same issue but stopping the DNS server service did not allow me to start the Blackberry Controller.  Does anyone have any idea what else I can try?  Thanks!

I had seen that and did go into the registry.  There was no SysLogPort key in the path they specified, so I added it, but that didn't help either.

have you tried re-starting the blackberry dispatcher service in the Windows Services MMC (not within BB Manager)?

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

did you follow through with the suggestion at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/812873

you need to reserve the ports for BB usage, then stop DNS, start BB Controller etc.

i had the exact same issue 2 days ago, i had to do these things, and it didn't work, then finally re-started the dispatcher service and re-established contact with the BB devices again.

Yes, I did it exactly the way you suggest.  I reserved the ports (there was already a set reserved, so I added this set.  Stopped DNS server, restarted Dispatcher, then tried to start BB Controller.  Same error.

i assume the controller service started successfully, correct?

the only other suggestion i have is to try restarting the dispatcher again, only because i did it in a different order.   restarted Dispatcher AFTER Controller service was already started.

No, I can't get the controller service to start.  I get the 5003 error every time.

try netstat -ano on the BES and see if it lists a PID on port 4071 and report back.

Brilliant, Russianblue!  It was the SNMP service - I stopped it and successfully started the BB Controller!  Thanks so much!
