KB18140 - New features in BlackBerry Enterprise Server version 5.0


Environment

  • BlackBerry® Enterprise Server version 5.0



Overview

BlackBerry Administration Service
  • The BlackBerry Administration Service is a web application that connects to the BlackBerry Configuration Database. The BlackBerry Administration Service can be used to manage the BlackBerry Domain, which includes user accounts and features that can be used to control BlackBerry smartphones. The BlackBerry Domain consists of a single BlackBerry Configuration Database and all of the BlackBerry Enterprise Server instances that use it.
  • The BlackBerry Administration Service replaces the BlackBerry Manager as the administration console for the BlackBerry Enterprise Server and BlackBerry Enterprise Server components.
BlackBerry Enterprise Server High Availability


  • BlackBerry Enterprise Server high availability consists of a minimum of two BlackBerry Enterprise Server instances and the BlackBerry Configuration Database replicated across two database servers. High availability is designed so that no single point of failure exists in the BlackBerry® Enterprise Solution that could stop the messaging and application data flow to and from BlackBerry smartphones.
High availability for a distributed environment


  • If there are multiple BlackBerry Enterprise Server components installed on different computers to create a distributed environment, configuring the components for high availability is possible. High availability for a distributed component requires that two or more instances of the component be installed in the organization's environment. When an instance stops responding, the other instances can take over.
Support for database mirroring


  • If the organization uses Microsoft® SQL Server® 2005 SP2 or later, configuring database mirroring is possible. Database mirroring requires a principal database, mirror database, and, optionally, a witness. Although the BlackBerry Enterprise Server can contact the mirror database, it opens active connections to the principal database only. If the principal database stops responding, the BlackBerry Enterprise Server opens an active connection to the mirror database automatically. Database mirroring provides fault tolerance for the BlackBerry Enterprise Solution.
Support for Windows Server® 2008


  • BlackBerry Enterprise Server version 5.0 supports Windows Server 2008.
Enrolling certificates over the wireless network


  • Configure the BlackBerry Enterprise Server to permit BlackBerry smartphones to enroll certificates over the wireless network is possible. Permitting BlackBerry smartphones to enroll certificates is an alternative to instructing users to send the certificates to themselves in an email message or using the certificate synchronization tool in the BlackBerry® Desktop Software.
New method for installing and managing the BlackBerry Device Software and BlackBerry Java® Applications


  • Using the BlackBerry Administration Service to install and manage the BlackBerry Device Software and BlackBerry Java Applications on BlackBerry smartphones is possible.
  • In the BlackBerry Administration Service, create software configurations to specify the versions of the BlackBerry Device Software and BlackBerry Java Applications that should be installed or updated on the BlackBerry smartphones, or removed from the BlackBerry smartphones. Use software configurations to specify which applications are required, optional, or not permitted on the BlackBerry smartphones. When creating a software configuration, specify whether users can install applications that are not listed in the software configuration on their BlackBerry smartphones.
  • When adding a BlackBerry Java Application to a software configuration, assign an application control policy to the application to specify what resources the application can access on the BlackBerry smartphones. If permitting users to install unlisted applications, create an application control policy for unlisted applications that specifies what resources the applications can access on the BlackBerry smartphones.
  • If assigning more than one software configuration to a user account, all of the settings in the multiple software configurations are applied to the BlackBerry smartphone. The BlackBerry Enterprise Server resolves conflicting settings using predefined reconciliation rules and prioritized rankings that you can specify using the BlackBerry Administration Service.
  • For more information about installing and managing the BlackBerry Device Software on BlackBerry smartphones, visit http://www.blackberry.com/go/serverdocs to see the BlackBerry Device Software Update Guide.
BlackBerry MDS Application Console


  • The BlackBerry MDS Application Console is a web administration console that can be used to manage BlackBerry MDS Runtime Applications and BlackBerry® Browser Applications that reside in the BlackBerry MDS Application Repository. Use the BlackBerry MDS Application Console to send requests to a BlackBerry MDS Integration Service to install or update BlackBerry MDS Runtime Applications and BlackBerry Browser Applications on BlackBerry smartphones, or to remove the applications from BlackBerry devices. Install the BlackBerry MDS Application Console when installing the BlackBerry MDS Integration Service.
  • The BlackBerry MDS Application Console supports BlackBerry MDS Integration Service version 5.0 or later.
Support for new BlackBerry Browser Applications

  • Browser channel push applications: An icon displays on the Home screen of BlackBerry smartphones to indicate whether users viewed the latest version of the web content that the Browser Push Engine pushed to the BlackBerry smartphones.
  • Browser cache push applications: The Browser Push Engine pushes web content to the cache of the BlackBerry Browser on BlackBerry smartphones. To view the web content, users browse to the appropriate web address using the BlackBerry Browser.
  • Browser message push applications: A message appears in the message list on BlackBerry smartphones to provide a link to new or updated web content.
  • For more information about developing and customizing BlackBerry Applications, visit www.blackberry.com/developers.
Attachment support for the .wma file format


  • The BlackBerry Attachment Service now supports the .wma audio file format.
  • New IT policy rules
  • For information about new IT policy groups and IT policy rules, visit www.blackberry.com/go/serverdocs to see the Policy Reference Guide.
