How to unattached Blackberry from Microsoft Exchange

I want to be able to unattached the Blackberry service from exchange. The reason being is we are going to get rid of our Blackberry phones and BES server. We are getting Droid phones which are going to use Microsoft Exchange Active Sync.  What would I need to do in exchange to unattached the Blackberry service.

You don't do anything from the Exchange end. You need to remove all of the user accounts from the BES Admin console and that will remove any Blackberry attributes from the users' email accounts on the Exchange server.  Then you can simply uninstall the BES software.

I should say, just to be absolutely clear, that when you delete the user accounts from the BES Admin console, it will PROMPT you to remove the Blackberry attributes from Exchange. Of course, you want to answer "Yes" to this prompt to go ahead and remove them.

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

Hi,

Don't forget to revoke Exchange and AD permissions for BlackBerry Service Account once BES is uninstalled.
