BES10 Router?

Ok, i am still confused with this.

I have BDS and MDM installed locally on one server.  The device was manageable etc once registered with WDM via usb cable.
But, i was told i need to also have a separate server with the router service installed.  I have done this and pointed BDS to the new router server, removing the gb.srp.blackberry.com and 3010 port.
I am now getting errors in event viewer on the BDS server.

So, do i need a separate server for the router service only or not?

Thanks

In fact, from working with another person on EE, the router service option will not be available if you try to run the installer on a system that already has the BDS service running on it. Below is the link that you need to install it on a separate server.

I don't think you need a different server for router. I'm running three separate BES servers. On all I have the router installed on the same sever and is working fine.

Yes. I have BDS up and running. The router service is supposed to be installed on a separate server. With BES 5 and below, it ran on the same server, but with version 10, the router must be on a separate server. It is done this way in order to allow the installation of the service in a server that resides in the DMZ. Can you post the errors you are getting?

Strange, as once the device (playbook) is activated i can manage it fine without the router...

How do i tell if the router service is installed on the BDS box?

By installing the router on another server it seemed to make no difference...

Will take a look at the link.

If it is installed, you should see it in the services on the server. Did you do an Over-the-Air activation on the PlayBook? I originally got mine activated over the company Wi-Fi, which is different than over a carrier's network. As far as the other server, there is a registry edit in the link I sent you. That may affect it. Also, if you installed the UDS on the same server, that can create conflicts that cause a problem. There is another KB to address this that I can send you the link to.

All i see is dispatcher service on the BDS.
No, i could only do a WDM activation using usb lead as OS was 2.0 and read somewhere 2.1 or later will OTA...
Had a look at UDS install and got scared, so leaving it!

In order to do OTA, you need to install the router service on a separate server. There is a way to make it work using the router service on an existing BES 5.0 server. I can send you that KB if you want, but it would create another issue if you ever decommission that server and forget you did that.
