Blackberry Enterprise Express Server is using an large amount of data.

We are running an Blackberry Enterprise express server 5.01 on  MS Windows SBS 2003 enviroment.

On this server only 2 users (BB) are running.

Under the Bas directory mostly the DATA and TMP directory are growing with a lot of files/data (+- 50GB). This is giving us problems because we are running out of diskspace!

First i heard that we need to reserve TCP ports in the registry: 48858, 48857, 48855, 45588. so i did.
But the problem is that there still is an lot of data. Wich of this data can we throw away?

I already limited the BES log files to a retention of 15 days and per day a max of 250MB.

Please tell me how to stop this data grow and wich files we can throw away, apart from the log files.

Hi Marganz,

Do you have any anti-virus or back up software that could potentially lock out the log files when they're being written to?
If they are locking the log files, a temp file is created until the locked file has been released and can be written to. However as the log files themselves are just flat, plain text files they can be quite large and take some time for the anti-virus/backup process to finish.

The main reason is the high availibility check that the BES server is doing on base of UDP, we had to change it to TCP. the problem was the BAS was restarting every time building new temp file's so when restarting every time it would write some new file's around 400 kb. restarting every minutt it will grow a lot.

Hopefull this is the solution. The problem only occurs under sbs 2003 as far we can see. at other customers under sbs 2007 no probelms at all!
