I would like to test out a Blackberry in our Zimbra environment. We are currently using iPhones and the Moto Q for smart phones. It looks like getting the Blackberry working in our environment is going to be much more involved. I want to make sure I have the correct steps to get this working.
We run our Zimbra server on RHEL4 - 64 bit running ZCS 5.0.9. I plan to install the BES/BPS software and Zimbra BES Connector on a Windows 2003 Server.
I would appreciate any help with these processes:
1. Install Blackberry Enterprise Server or BlackBerry Professional Software 4.1?
I have a license for BlackBerry Professional Software 4.1 for Microsoft Exchange, but is that different than BES? If so, is BES something I have to purchase from Blackberry? I have tried to install the Blackberry Professional Software on the Windows 2003 Server, but get an error "The MAPI subsystem cannot be correctly initiized and used." near the end of the installation.
2. Install Zimbra BES Connector 5.x.x.
Is there any documentation for the settings to use to link the BES software to our actual Zimbra server?
3. Configure and test the actual Blackberry.
Is there any documentation for the settings on the Blackberry so that it syncs to the Zimbra/BES server?
Thanks for any help,
