    Question BlackBerry Desktop Manager Corrupting Desktop[CMIME] service book when users sync

    Advertisement



    I am the administrator of a BES server/Exchange integration and have run across a problem that I haven’t been able to resolve. I haven’t even been able to determine why it is happening.

    First a little about the setup that is having the problem…

    We have multiple users who are setup to download their email (not using Cached Exchange) to an Outlook PST file on their laptop so that their email is accessible from their laptops at all times (excluding newly arrived email that hasn’t been downloaded yet). The users are setup so that the email arrives and gets delivered to their blackberry where they can see it immediately and respond to it if necessary, or wait until later to deal with it when they have access to the internet and can download their email to their laptop. BlackBerry Desktop Manager is installed on their laptops to allow these users to sync their contacts/memos/tasks/calendar (emails are not synched) with Outlook locally on their laptops. Wireless synchronization is off for all of these applications.

    The Problem:

    Whenever users synchronize their BlackBerry with the BlackBerry Desktop Manager software on their laptop it corrupts their Desktop[CMIME] service book and sometimes their Desktop[CICAL] service book.

    - We know the Desktop[CMIME] service book is corrupt because the user is no longer able to send or reply to email (Gets the “Transaction error. Bad format message.”).

    - We know the Desktop[CICAL] service book is corrupt because the Wireless Synchronization and a couple of other options will disappear from the Calendar’s option menu.

    - The user must then delete one or both of these service books depending on what is corrupted, contact us, and have us resend their service books to return the device to full function.

    - It occurs sporadically for some users, for most users with this setup it happens every time, but for some people it does not occur at all (I am in the last group as I cannot get it to happen, which makes it very difficult to troubleshoot).

    - It seems to occur most often on the 8703e, but is known to happen on other models as well.

    Attempted Resolutions:

    We’ve tried every version of the Desktop Manager software, including going back to version 3.6 and it occurs on all versions. (Note: They recently released Service Pack 2 for the newest version of the Desktop Manager software. I am in the process of getting someone to test it, but I don’t see it working then either.) We’ve gone through every configuration setting on the Desktop Manager and BlackBerry Enterprise Server software to see if there would be anything that would cause it, and were unable to find anything. We have a standardized setup for users, and it for some users, even though all users have the same setup.

    The problem must lie on either the devices or in the Desktop Manager software, but I have not been able to find a resolution.

    Is there anyone who has experience such an issue? What did you do to resolve it? Any help would be appreciated.

    Thank you.

    Same issue on an 8800. Fails every time after doing Intellisync via USB. Running Desktop Manager 4.2.2 (SP2).

    Desktop CICAL and CMIME service books get corrupted. Cannot send e-mails (fails with "Transaction Error - Bad Format" error). Can still receive e-mails but MORE request doesn't work (service book cannot be found).

    Note this only affects BES e-mail services. BIS services on same device continue to work fine.

    Very frustrating and annoying...thinking of filing a pay-as-you-go incident with RIM.

    OK, I think I have a workaround.

    1) Go through enterprise activation again (or just push out the service books to the BB from BES).

    2) Verify that Desktop [CMIME] service book is correct on BB in Advanced Options-Service Book (should show something other than e-mail address in UID field).

    3) Launch DTM. Ensure Message Redirection is off in E-mail Settings-General. Go to E-mail Settings-Advanced tab and change the Message Service Display Name field to something other than "Desktop". This will create a new [CMIME] and [CICAL] service book that will not interfere with the default Desktop service book (though it appears to overwrite the Desktop [CICAL] service book).

    4) Now sync Calendar, Addresses, Tasks, etc. via Intellisync as usual (via USB or Bluetooth).

    5) Voilŕ, Desktop service book is left intact and e-mail transmitting and receiving from Desktop (BES) address remains functional.

    A bit of a kludge but it seems to work.

    Thumbs up Re: BlackBerry Desktop Manager Corrupting Desktop[CMIME] service book when users sync

    Open

    Desktop Manager
    Email Settings
    Advanced Tab
    >> Change "Message Service Display Name" from Desktop to something else (Desktop22)


    If you are the administrator then you may rename "Desktop" with in BES
