Blackberry enterprise server express 5.0.3 on Small Business Server 2011

Sovit_83 used Ask the Experts™
Hi there,
             I have been pulling my hair out from  last 2 days trying to get BES express 5.0.3  working on SBS 2011. I have multiple issues with it.
I have created Besadmin account with local administrative account on server and given it view only permission for exchange, with log on locally and log in service right. Given it send as permisson at root active directory domain and also at exchange power shell. Aslso did
1.New-ThrottlingPolicy BESPolicy
2.Set-ThrottlingPolicy BESPolicy -RCAMaxConcurrency $null -RCAPercentTimeInAD $null -RCAPercentTimeInCAS $null -RCAPercentTimeInMailboxRPC $null -EWSMaxConcurrency $null -EWSPercentTimeInAD $null -EWSPercentTimeInCAS $null -EWSPercentTimeInMailboxRPC $null -EWSMaxSubscriptions $null -EWSFastSearchTimeoutInSeconds $null -EWSFindCountLimit $null
3.Set-Mailbox “BESAdmin” -ThrottlingPolicy BESPolicy.
So Besadmin has all rights it needs.
Installlation goes smooth. After installation all blackberry services are started. But there are following problems
1. Blackberry administration webconsole and web destop manager Console page cannot be displayed. and there are no logs for BAS-AS

2. When I do IEMSTEST still besadmin has no send as permission right and EWS calendar failed.

How do I  get the blackbeery web administration console working. I cannot even troubleshoot bescause it doesn't create the BAS-LOGS.

I have already reinstalled BES 3 times. PLease Help

Have you tried to reserve the following ports: 48858, 48857, 48855, 45588, 49955, 45599, 4070, 4071 these are sometime used by other services like dns.

Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then click OK.
Locate and then click the following subkey:
Right-click ReservedPorts, and then click Modify.
Paste the following at the bottom
You don't need restart the server. It is the DNS Server service competing with the BAS-AS for the ports, so it is enough to reserve the ports in the registry, stop the DNS Server service, stop the BAS-AS, start the DNS service, start the BAS-AS - and it works.

I am encountering exactly the same issue.  Have made the changes suggested on 5/14 and issue remains.  Log files for DISP report "BlackBerry User Administration Service: NOT FOUND" and "BlackBerry Database Consistency Service: NOT FOUND".  Checking services show that both are installed and running without any event log errors. I have double checked the install documentation and have performed twice with same results.  Note that during the database portion of the installation I have accepted default of Dynamic Port and Static Port without any change in results.  I have only one BB user out of 15 and without a resolution he will be limited to Outlook Anywhere for his email.  
When I reistalled I just changed to blackberry authentication instead of windows authentication and It  working for now. If there is any issues still I will post it in the forum.


It was solved by myself
