Blackberry Server Installation

I have a fresh installation of BES 5.02 on a fresh installation of Exchange 2010 and it's stuck at the BESMGMT database installation.  I am using local SQL Express 2008.  RIM support isn't returning calls.
Permissions seem to be okay (followed instructions).  The BES2010 account has log on local, log on as a service, required exchange permissions, etc.

Any ideas?

Try making the BES admin account a domain admin. That seemed to work on the last BES install I did.

I've added the account to the following groups:

1. Domain Admins
2. local admin
3. domain users
4. view-only organizational management

The error is attached.

there is nothing re: BB/BES in the event log. BES Error

Hi,

DON'T make it a member of Domain Admins - it won't work properly because it will be denied permissions such as Send-As - this is clearly highlighted in the installation guide.

You DO need to add it to the local Admins group and assign log on locally and log on as a service permissions.

Futhermore you shouldn't really be installing BES on Exchange - it's best to put it on a separate server where you can install SQL Express etc.

Installing the BES on Exchange is an unsupported installation - see page 24 (http://docs.blackberry.com/en/admin/deliverables/25746/BlackBerry_Enterprise_Server_for_Microsoft_Exchange-Installation_and_Configuration_Guide--1301066-0310115318-001-5.0.3-US.pdf)

Regards.


RobMobility.

In the SQL Express configuration check if TCP/IP is enabled in there.
