Converting user accounts using the BlackBerry Load Test Configuration Tool

Prerequisites: Importing user accounts using the BlackBerry Load Test Configuration Tool

  • Verify that the BlackBerry® Enterprise Server is running.
  • Verify that the messaging server is running.
  • Verify that you configured the administrator profile for the BlackBerry Enterprise Server correctly.
  • Verify that you configured the permissions for the BlackBerry Enterprise Server correctly.
  • If you plan on testing BlackBerry Enterprise Server 4.1, verify that you can start the BlackBerry Manager successfully.
  • If you plan on testing BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0 or later, verify that you installed the BlackBerry® Administration API.

Generating a list of user accounts

You must provide the BlackBerry® Infrastructure and Smartphone Simulator with the text file that contains the user account list. Each user account must be identified by a unique email address.

You must generate the user account list the first time you run the BlackBerry Load Test Configuration Tool and each time you change the number of user accounts that are associated with the BlackBerry® Enterprise Server unless you are testing the wireless activation process.

Each line of the user account list contains one email address. To create the user account list, use the method that is provided with your messaging server or edit the list of statistics that the BlackBerry Enterprise Server exports.

Optionally, the list can also contain one PIN for each email address that is separated from the email address by a tab character. You might use this if you have multiple BlackBerry Enterprise Server instances and you must run the BlackBerry Load Test Configuration Tool again on one. The PIN is the PIN that the BlackBerry Infrastructure and Smartphone Simulator uses, not the original PIN. If you include a PIN, each email address must have a PIN. Each PIN should be hexadecimal and should appear in the list in sequential order, starting with F1000000.

Example: The format of user account list

# The BlackBerry Load Test Configuration Tool
# ignores lines that begin with # marks and ignores blank lines.
# [] indicates optional information.

<fully_qualified_email_address>[<tab><PIN>]
