- BlackBerry® Enterprise Server software version 3.6 to 4.1 for IBM® Lotus® Domino®

This article applies when the BlackBerry Configuration Database is hosted on a Microsoft SQL Server 2000 or on a computer where MSDE 2000 is installed. MSDE 2000 is installed with the BlackBerry Enterprise Server software.
To create the BlackBerry Configuration Database, the BlackBerry Enterprise Server administrator requires access to a Windows® account (Trusted) or a SQL account on the BlackBerry Enterprise Server with the following roles:
|Database creators (db_create) || This role is required to create the BlackBerry Configuration Database. |
|3.6 - 4.1|
|Server administrator (serveradmin) || This role is needed to create tasks in the new BlackBerry Configuration Database. The administrator does not need access to the SQL system administrator account. |
|3.6 and 4.0|
|System administrator (sysadmin) ||This role is needed for BlackBerry® Mobile Data System (BlackBerry MDS) Services (MDSS) installation and for role administration. ||4.1 only|
To update and maintain the BlackBerry Configuration Database, the BlackBerry Enterprise Server administrator requires the following roles:
Note: When you add the BlackBerry Enterprise Server administrative account to the local administrators account, the administrative account automatically becomes a member of the above roles in MSDE.
- SQL Server (serveradmin)
- Database role (db_owner)
Refer to the BlackBerry Enterprise Server Installation Guide for more information on setting up the BlackBerry Configuration Database.
