Fixed issues: BlackBerry Administration Service

  • If you uninstalled the BlackBerry® MDS Integration Service and then did not restart the BlackBerry Administration Service, the BlackBerry Administration Service did not stop trying to send invalid notifications, which caused log files to grow, performance issues, and administrators could not log in. (DT 993127)
  • In an environment that included a large number of BlackBerry device users and applications, BlackBerry Administration Service reconciled tasks slower than expected. (DT 980881)
  • If the BlackBerry Administration Service generated and queued a large number of tasks and the BlackBerry Administration Service instance that started processing the tasks stopped, the processing took longer than expected until the instance started again. (DT 968146)
  • If the BlackBerry Administration Service had a large number of jobs to process after the 5-minute timeout elapses, the BlackBerry Administration Service might not have processed all of the jobs. (DT 887734)
  • In some circumstances when you issued a “Delete all device data and disable device” command to a user’s BlackBerry device and then the user activated a new device before the device acknowledged the original command, the BlackBerry Administration Service disabled the user’s new device after an hour. (DT 836520)
  • If you uninstall the BlackBerry MDS Integration Service by running the setup application again and deselecting the BlackBerry MDS Integration Service, you cannot delete the BlackBerry MDS Integration Service information from the BlackBerry Configuration Database. In the BlackBerry Administration Service, when you click Delete the instance for the BlackBerry MDS Integration Service on the Components view page, the BlackBerry Administration Service logs you out and does not delete the BlackBerry MDS Integration Service information. (DT 762391)
  • In certain circumstances, the BlackBerry Administration Service interface became unresponsive. The issue has been resolved to improve the stability of the BlackBerry Administration Service. (DT 756636)
  • In certain circumstances, when a reconciliation task failed and other reconciliation tasks were dependent on the failed task, the BlackBerry Administration Service stopped unexpectedly. (DT 734596)
  • In certain circumstances, you could not log in to the BlackBerry Administration Service using Microsoft® Active Directory® authentication. (DT 711491)
  • If you set the Disposition application control policy rule to Required, pushed an application to a device, and then pushed an upgrade of the application to the device, the device could not install the application. The BlackBerry Administration Service displayed the “Device Reported a general failure installing the module” error message. (DT 690469, DT 643197)
  • If you installed a new BlackBerry Administration Service instance and selected an existing BlackBerry Configuration Database during the installation process, and the name of the wireless service provider that was stored in the BlackBerry Configuration Database was long, the BlackBerry Administration Service did not permit you to manage shared drives or BlackBerry® Device Software update bundles. (DT 689474)
  • If BlackBerry Administration Service instances in a pool experienced network connectivity issues, a notification that a task was complete might have been lost. When this issue occured, the task status might have changed to Failure, and the status for subsequent dependent tasks might have changed to Dependency Failure. The BlackBerry Administration Service did not complete subsequent dependent tasks. (DT 681866)
  • When you tried to move a user from one BlackBerry® Enterprise Server to another using the BlackBerry User Administration Service, the BlackBerry User Administration Service returned the error “Unable to move BlackBerry enabled user.” (DT 648855)
  • In certain circumstances, the BlackBerry Administration Service repeatedly writes the following error message to its log file: “Violation of PRIMARY KEY constraint ‘PK_BASJobTaskDependencies’. Cannot insert duplicate key in object ‘dbo.BASJobTaskDependencies.” (DT 617678)
  • If you ran more than one BlackBerry Enterprise Server and more than one Microsoft® Exchange Server in a BlackBerry Domain, and you used a different service account for each BlackBerry Enterprise Server with permissions for each service account restricted to its corresponding Microsoft Exchange Server, the BlackBerry Administration Service might not have been able to access a user’s mailbox. (DT 604343)
  • When you exported summary data for a large number of users in the BlackBerry Administration Service, the transaction time limit might have been exceeded, which prevented the action from completing successfully. (DT 508049)
  • The BlackBerry Administration Service could not manage users who have duplicate information in the BlackBerry Configuration Database. (DT 501446)
  • In some circumstances, the Current Carrier field in the BlackBerry Administration Service displayed the local wireless service provider instead of the home wireless service provider. (DT 242867)

Fixed issues: BlackBerry Attachment Service

  • Users could not view Microsoft® Word 2010 documents on their devices if the documents were saved in previous Microsoft Word versions, from Microsoft Word 97 to Microsoft Word 2003. (DT 684041)

Fixed issues: BlackBerry MDS Connection Service

  • If a page set a cookie, the BlackBerry MDS Connection Service did not pass the cookie on to any other pages. (DT 486192)

Fixed issues: BlackBerry Messaging Agent

  • *In a Microsoft Exchange 2010 environment with a lot of activity, the BlackBerry Enterprise Server might take longer than expected to send email messages to the device. (DT 1006793)
    For more information about how to improve BlackBerry Enterprise Server performance, see the Managing the BlackBerry Enterprise Server Performance in a Microsoft Exchange 2010 Environment Technical Note.
  • If a global catalog server stopped responding, MAPI returned the error “0x80040200 (MAPI_E_END_OF_SESSION)” to the BlackBerry Enterprise Server. (DT 785495)
  • If your organization used MFCMAPI and a user deleted an email message from Microsoft® Outlook®, the message was not deleted from the device. (DT 731670)
  • If you configured the BlackBerry Enterprise Server to search for email addresses using LDAP, the search results could return the GUID of distribution lists, instead of the display name. (DT 719963)
  • If a user sent an email message from the device and then flagged the email message for follow up in Microsoft Outlook, the email message was duplicated on the device. (DT 604997)

Fixed issues: BlackBerry Monitoring Service

  • When you tried to log into the BlackBerry Monitoring Service after September 4, 2010, it displayed the following error: “The application has encountered a system error. Please report this error to the System Administrator.” (DT 848240)
  • If you install the BlackBerry Monitoring Service on a virtual machine that runs the 32-bit or 64-bit version of Windows Server® 2008, a memory leak in the appsvc.exe process causes the virtual machine to stop responding. (
    DT 761232)
  • The BlackBerry Monitoring Service increased its usage of computer memory over 72 hours until the computer stops responding. (DT 647219)

Fixed issues: BlackBerry Policy Service

  • If you moved a user account from BlackBerry Enterprise Server 4.1 SP6 to 5.0 SP2 using the BlackBerry Enterprise Transporter, the BlackBerry Policy Service might not have been able to regenerate encryption keys and the device might not have been able to send or receive data. (DT 681797)

Fixed issues: Logging

  • When you configured a debugging tool such as ADPlus or the Debug Diagnostic Tool (DebugDiag) to monitor a BlackBerry Enterprise Server process specifically for first chance access violation (AV) exceptions and produced corresponding .dmp files, excessive amounts of .dmp files might have been produced. This might have resulted in performance degradation for the BlackBerry Enterprise Server or loss of service due to low hard drive space. (DT 660577)
  • When the BlackBerry Enterprise Server processed SMS text messages that were in Unicode, the BlackBerry Enterprise Server did not include the closing quote in its log file and fields are missing. (DT 587721)

Fixed issues: Security

  • A security vulnerability existed in the PDF distiller of the BlackBerry Attachment Service. This vulnerability could have allowed a potentially malicious user to cause buffer overflow errors, leading to a DoS condition or possibly arbitrary code execution on the computer that the BlackBerry Attachment Service runs on. Successful exploitation of the issue would have required a potentially malicious user to embed a specially crafted font in a PDF file and then persuade a user to open that PDF file on a device that is associated with a user account on a BlackBerry Enterprise Server.

New High Availability Feature Article and Updated Support Guidance for Exchange 2010
A database availability group (DAG), together with mailbox database copies, can provide automatic recovery from a variety of server, storage, network, and other hardware failures. A DAG can also provide a site resilience solution so that you can perform a datacenter switchover in the event of a site-level disaster. But even a comprehensive, intelligent, and robust solution such as a DAG can’t protect you from all possible disasters, including disasters that affect an entire DAG. For example, consider a two-member DAG deployed in a single datacenter. If the datacenter experiences a flood, fire, or other cataclysmic event that destroys the DAG, the entire DAG will need to be rebuilt from scratch.  How do you do that?

Windows 2008 R2 TaskScheduler

Another one I wanted to share.  So I can’t find an easy way to email me if a server is rebooted.

With Windows 2008 R2, the Task Scheduler has a magic trigger “At Startup”

So all I have done is created a small powershell script that sends an email as the action.  Nice!

#Powershell and ConvertTo-Html

Every day I use powershell its a school day, I learn something new!

So I use powershell at lot to create html pages from cmdlets.  ConvertTo-Html is a god send and make this a hell of a lot easier. So lets take an easy one:

Get-Service ZuneNetworkSvc

Status   Name               DisplayName
——   —-               ———–
Stopped  ZuneNetworkSvc     Zune Network Sharing Service

now convert it to html

Get-Service ZuneNetworkSvc | ConvertTo-Html -Fragment

Name RequiredServices CanPauseAndContinue CanShutdown CanStop DisplayNa me DependentServices MachineName ServiceName ServicesDependedOn ServiceHandle</ th> Status ServiceType Site Container
ZuneNetworkSvc System.ServiceProcess.ServiceController[] False False False Zune Network Sharing Service System.ServiceProcess.ServiceController[] . ZuneNetworkSvc System.ServiceProcess.ServiceController[]   Stopped Win32OwnProcess    

That cool, but a bit painful as it’s quite wide. Found this today the –As parameter!

Get-Service ZuneNetworkSvc | ConvertTo-Html –Fragment –As List

Name: ZuneNetworkSvc
RequiredServices: System.ServiceProcess.ServiceController[]
CanPauseAndContinue: False
CanShutdown: False
CanStop: False
DisplayName: Zune Network Sharing Service
DependentServices: System.ServiceProcess.ServiceController[]
MachineName: .
ServiceName: ZuneNetworkSvc

It just get better and better.  Check out some of the other parameters here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd347572.aspx
