Force Load Count IT policy rule

Description

This rule specifies the number of times that users can decline to update the BlackBerry® Device Software before they must update it. The permitted range is -1 through 1000 times.

Default value

The default value is No Limit.

Usage

To turn off mandatory updates of the BlackBerry Device Software, change this rule to -1.

To turn on the forced update feature, change this rule to 0 or higher. If you turn on the feature, when a user logs in and connects a BlackBerry device to a computer, the BlackBerry® Desktop Manager or BlackBerry® Web Desktop Manager version 1.0 or 1.0.1 automatically checks whether newer versions of the software are available and prompts the user to update the BlackBerry device.

This rule is obsolete in BlackBerry Web Desktop Manager version 5.0 and later.

Minimum requirements

  • BlackBerry® Application Suite version 1.0
  • BlackBerry® Desktop Software version 3.5 or BlackBerry Web Desktop Manager version 1.0
  • BlackBerry® Enterprise Server version 3.5 for Microsoft® Exchange, BlackBerry® Enterprise Server version 4.0 for IBM® Lotus® Domino®, or BlackBerry® Enterprise Server version 4.0 for Novell® GroupWise®

Exceptions

The BlackBerry Enterprise Server for Novell GroupWise supports this rule with the BlackBerry Web Desktop Manager only.
