How can I Manage BES 5.0 Cals with AD Groups

Removing users from BES has become a manual process that is sometimes overllooked.  Is there a way to have BES 5.0 reconcile CALS (user accounts) with a group in AD?  So when a user is terminated, and removed from the AD group "Blackberry Users", BES would also free up the CAL.

Thanks,

Chris

You can do so via scripting, but not via a GUI/Web console.
The blackberry resource kit (BRK) has a tool called besuseradminclient.exe, that allows you to perform tasks such as add/remove user, change password etc from a command line.

So your best option would be to script the blackberry portion that gets triggered when a user is removed from AD.
