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?

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.

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

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

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

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