Network@ETP Messages - On a BES?
I'm running BES 22.214.171.124 with 12 BB 8820's. Each handheld is activated at the server via USB cable, and until now I haven't had any problems.
However, one of the users plugged into his laptop (running Blackberry Desktop software that was installed from a previous hosted Exchange/BES environment) and is now receiving the dreaded network@etp messages a few dozen times a day.
I tried following Hayden's instructions here:
Right up until this point:
Should I really be choosing BIS instead of BES? If so, what is the reasoning behind this?
5. Reinstall the BlackBerry Desktop Software and choose the BlackBerry Internet Email option during installation.
For what it's worth, the user works remotely in Texas (I'm in Florida), so wiping and reactivating is something I'd like to avoid. I've also had bad experiences with wireless activation (because I haven't yet dug through the tutorials linked on this forum, but that's where I'm heading next).
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
Yes, you should be choosing BIS.
Choosing BES is what is giving you the messages.
If you are wirelessly activating, there is no need to use Desktop Manager for anything other than Backups, App/OS loading, and media.
No you dont need to choose BIS instead of bes. More then likely the previous install was installed for Redirector instead of BES. WHen you reinstall make sure you choose BES and it should be fine.
Thanks for the replies!
That's what I figured. I sent the instructions, and am waiting to hear back if it works.

You dont really need to uninstall the DM software to change these settings, you can go in through Control Panel / Add-Remove software and use the Change function.
I am NOT a BES guy, but I know in a BIS environment you need to delete the Desktop CICAL and CMIME service books as well to stop the messages.
Interesting - thanks for the tip, it hadn't occurred to me to check Add/Remove programs.

The thing is, those service books are repopulated by the BES afterwards, and without them the handheld stops receiving messages (at least my own device did when I tried deleting them).
Have the user go in to service books and view the Desktop [CMIME] service book. Have him look at the uid field and see if it says the SRP of the server or his email address. If they are the ones from the bes it should show SRP if it shows email then it is the ones from redirector.
