Blackberry stuck on initializing when connecting to BES server

On our BES server we recently encountered the problem of our employees not being able to send or receive emails on their Black Berry PDA's. Upon discovering this we began to trouble shoot by re-pushing the IT policy and service books out to all the Black Berries as needed. This did not solve the problem. We then hand all those affected bring their phones to us in which we un-registered them from their phones and then re-registered them to no avail. the server now has the user stuck at initializing on the desktop for the past 24 hours. It will not allow us to add the phone to the users account. This has happened before and it was the MAPI profle was not correct. When we had this problem before we just uninstalled the BES software and re-installed it. This did not work this time.

When going through the eventlog we encountered this event warning Event ID (2406)

 " The description for Event ID ( 20406 ) in Source ( BlackBerry Controller ) cannot be found. The local computer may not have the necessary registry information or message DLL files to display messages from a remote computer. You may be able to use the /AUXSOURCE= flag to retrieve this description; see Help and Support for details. The following information is part of the event: 'CVN75UCSBB01' agent 2: will not restart - reached the maximum of 10 restarts per 24 hours."

thanks in advance for any help.

Hi,

Rather than Windows Event logs, you really need to check the BlackBerry logs in the log folder in C:\program files\Research in Motion\BlackBerry Enterprise Server - change c:\ for a different drive if that's where it's installed.

Is your BlackBerry Enterprise Server and Microsoft Exchange Server are on the same server ?

Do you get the initial Handshake, but that is it?
Also are you having this issue with other BB Handhelds?

RobMobility,
Are you suggesting to place the BES software on a different drive or the log files to a different drive?

Do you have enough licenses?

Hi,

No - you have the option of installing the application and logs in different places - it was wherever you had installed them

Had a similar problem before and found that it turned out to be after SQL server update that the problem arose and this caused the despatcher/ router services to crash on a frequent basis, as it turned out I uninstalled everything connected with Blackberry, including the SQL server using revo uninstaller pro as it removes registry entries, etc. Rebooted the server and then did a complete clean reinstall using the relevant key's, SRP information, etc. If you have a backup of the database, you can restore it, but sometimes best to start fresh. Just follow installation instruction's as per BES installation guide.

Some tips:

1. Remove them from BlackBerry manager but ask them to run through an activation anyway - make sure they receive and email from blackberry.net with an ETP.dat attachment. If they don't then the issue is either the device provisioning (airtime) or you spam filters are blocking the mail.

2. Assuming the above is OK, check that they have a BlackBerry Enterprise plan on the SIM

3. Re-add them to BlackBerry and configure an activation password - send this/commicate to them

4.  Get the PIN number of the device (Settings, Status) - when they try to activate, check the MAGT and DISP log files - check for references to their BlackBerry PIN number and email address.

Check the permissions for Service Account on Exchange and Sql.

We fixed it!

The local account was running logon scripts which was interfering with the communication between the BES server and the exchange server. Then we installed all of the updates and it worked like a dream.

Thanks everyone for your help
