Installing Blackberry Professional Software oN Windows Server SBS 2003

I am trying to install the latest version of Blackberry Professional software (v4.1.4) on our SBS 2003 server. However I have come to the 'Database Setting' option in the setup process and am unable to configure to run using the version of SQL Server that comes with SBS 2003.

NOTE: Have included a screenshot of the setup page.

Any help appreciated.

Regards, RM

The issue is usually with the instance name.

Check the RIM support site for resolving SQL install issues due to existing SQL install locally.

I hope this helps !

Verify that the service account you use for logging on your SBS server have access to your SQL server.

Do you have a T3MServer database running? Chances are the default installed one is going to be T3MServer\MICROSOFT##SSEE or something like that. Other installed ones for sbs would be sbsmonitoring and sharepoint. If you want a SQL server named just the name of the server you need to install a new instance of sql express or msde.

You can throw it in one of the other databases but I'd create a new one.

Also make sure that you are logged into the server as the BES (BPS) admin when installing the application.

To jdera's point make sure you are following RIM's instructions to the letter. Good example of this is the besadmin rights. It needs to be a local admin but if you make it a domain admin as well it will cause issues.

You have launch the installation package of MS SQL and choose create a new instance.

But, it's perhaps not necessary.

Can you check the name of your actual MS SQL instance ?
