Hello

The Exchange server that I had my BES and Exchange 2003 on lost it's RAID partition where the installation and data was stored. I was able to create a new partion (unsable to recover the old) and did a restore of Exchange pri & pub and that works fine as far as I can tell.

I have tried to get BES working but unable since the install folder is gone. I tried reinstalling over top of itself but keep getting the only option listed for the database location as being remote and cant create a new location locally. I have tried uninstalling it through Add/Remove to see if that would resolve but the remote location problem but keep getting Error 1316 a network error occurred while attempting to read from the file c:\windows\installer\blackberry enterprise server.msi.

I have tried deleting folders associated with RIM installation and even tried the keys also - no change.

Thoughts??

After using the KB and got out, was able to reload and then do a restore to reload the old database.

Why dont you simply try to keep the msi file in that location.. so your saying you Uninstalled and try Install ? As if not i would try this rather Re-install

The msi was corrupted as in original post "Error 1316 a network error occurred while attempting to read from the file c:\windows\installer\blackberry enterprise server.msi." and the actual app was lost when lost the partition. Uninstall and reinstall was only option.

when tried to reinstall over top of itself it would fail also since couldn't find original files.

If i force uninstall and Install why would it look for older files data ? .... this is what i am trying to say. Also check after you Uninstall if there is any Registry for BlackBerry on the server

I could not reinstall in the first place. Only way to get working was to get clean and install back clean.
