Hi All,

I am having a little trouble installing the Blackberry enterprise software onto my SBS 2008 machine.

I get to the part were you need to reboot your server, when it boots back up and you login as 'besadmin' the setup pops up again with the 'database information' section, this is the part were I am confused.

I have the option to create a database but the 'database location' only has the 'remote' option available - local is greyed out.

It then asks me to enter the 'Microsoft SQL Server Name' when I enter the server name and the instance, in my case its 'server/sbsmonitoring' it saying cannot find the sql server. (i can use the sbsmonitoring database I have been told)

Can anyone shed any light on this.

Thanks
R

Hi,

If the SQL server is remote, is it configured to allow remote TCP connections?

Have you assigned the correct SQL permissions to the BlackBerry Service account?

Hi Rob,

The SQL server is locally, SQL 2005 but when it brings the option up for the database, local is greyed out.

Uninstall the BES software and then re-run setup

Ensure to select the following options:

Setup type - Create a BlackBerry Configuration Database

Database options - Install Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Experss Edition SP3 on this computer

Hope this helps

I already have SQL 2005 installed on the server, this was installed when we build the server, will this make a difference?

Hi,

If you select Use an existing database, do you have the option of specifying the local SQL installation?

On the full blown BES installation, you can create the database by running the createdb.exe besmgmt.cfg from the command line in the BES install\database folder - if this exists for Bes Express, you can do this and then select Use existing database.

Regards,


RobMobility.

Hi,

Make sure the BES Service account has permissions on SQL - create a new login within SQL Management Studio and assign the appropriate permissions (in BlackBerry documentation under pre-requisites) if applicable.

Then try again and point the remote instance at the local database, although I have had issues when specifying and instance in the past.

Regards,


RobMobility.

Suggest to install another SQL instance for the BES.

Select Install Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Experss Edition SP3 on this computer

So the BES installer will create a SQL instance BESMACHINE\BLACKBERRY.
