can you look in these logs;

<BES installation directory>\Logs\Installer

and see if this gives any clues

Hi,

Sometimes this happens if it can't connect to the database.

Your best bet is to manually uninstall it via registry keys and then delete application installation from Program Files or wherever you installed it.

Refer to chapter 9 (page 41) of the following document:
http://docs.blackberry.com/en/admin/deliverables/1399/Installation_Guide.pdf

Regards,


RobMobility.

Thanks for your respnoses!

@foxpc123: i can't find the logs...i checked C:\Program Files\Research In Motion\BlackBerry Enterprise Server -- no logs dir. or logs*?

@RobMobility: will this remove the data...i am trying to free up space on the server?

Some background. We moved off an in-house setup over to a hosted envir. I have decommissioned Exchange on the SBS box. Should i start those services once again. Will that help in the uninstallation process of BES?

Hi,

Once you have removed the registry entries, you can manually delete the Research in Motion folders in Program Files.

Also check the c: drive for a Research in motion folder as this will contain the files used for installation and service packs etc.

Regards,


RobMobility.

@RobMobility: Everything went ok except manually uninstalling the Directory itself (C:\Program Files\Research In Motion). I get the following error (attached): Error Deleting File or Folder
Cannot delete BlackBerryServerSNMPAgent.dell: Access is denied.

Make sure the disk is not full or write-protected and that the file is not currently in use.

FYI: I am logging in as the BESAdmin. Not sure if that has any bearing?

Rebooted seemed to clear the file from access. Easily removed it after that. Thanks again!

Do you recommend disabling BESAdmin as a user for deleting it entirely?
