Hi,

I want to set pin numbers on user devises (BB 9300) which have already been activated and distributed to the clients, can it still be done and how?
Currently there is no PIN on these devices.

Thanks.

Hi,

You need to change your default IT Policy settings.

Specifically:

IT policy - device only items - Password Required = True (or Yes on later versions)
Minumum Password Length = X charachters
User can disable password = False (or no on later versions)
0

thanks for such a quick respose Rob, once applied will a default password be enforced on the phones? or can a password be specified( i cant find an option for specified password)
and im guessing the default password will be '0000' if it is set to default?

Hi,

Fortunately this isn't the case - you have a number of policies that can drive the format, complexity, history etc for passwords:

### Device Only Items Group ###

Maximum Password Age = 60 days (what have you configured on the desktop?)
Minimum Password length = 6 (suggested) or whatever complies with your desktop policy
Password required = Yes
Password Pattern Checks = set this to your required complexity (e.g. at least 1 numeric and 1 alpha - what have you configured for your desktop?)
User can disable password = No
User can change timeout = No

### Password Items Group ###

Maximum Password History = 10
Maximum Password Attempts = 10
Password Timeout = 15 or 30 minutes - or what's configured on the desktop?
Supress Password Echo = Yes

I have suggested some values above but I'd also suggest that you set these as close to your desktop policy as possible but take into account the practicalities of entering passwords onto the device.

You may want to enable Content Protection (Security Policy Group) to encrypt the device when locked.

Regards,


RobMobility.
