Configuring multiple BlackBerry Enterprise Server instances to use the same BlackBerry Enterprise Server component

To help make a BlackBerry® Domain more scalable, you can configure multiple BlackBerry® Enterprise Server instances to use the same BlackBerry MDS Connection Service, BlackBerry MDS Integration Service, or BlackBerry Collaboration Service. If a BlackBerry Domain contains one BlackBerry Enterprise Server, all of the BlackBerry Enterprise Server components are associated with that BlackBerry Enterprise Server automatically.

Configure multiple BlackBerry Enterprise Server instances to use the same BlackBerry MDS Connection Service

You can configure multiple BlackBerry® Enterprise Server instances to use the same central push server to transfer application data to and from BlackBerry devices and to manage HTTP requests from the BlackBerry® Browser.
Before you begin: Specify a BlackBerry MDS Connection Service as a central push server.
  1. In the BlackBerry Administration Service, on the Servers and components menu, expand BlackBerry Solution topology > BlackBerry Domain > Component view > MDS Conection Service.
  2. Click the instance that you want to change.
  3. Click Edit instance.
  4. On the Supported Dispatcher instances tab, in the Available Dispatcher instances list, click the BlackBerry Enterprise Server instance that you want to use the BlackBerry MDS Connection Service.
  5. Click Add.
  6. Repeat steps 4 and 5 for each BlackBerry Enterprise Server instance that you want to have use the BlackBerry MDS Connection Service.
  7. Click Save all.

Configure multiple BlackBerry Enterprise Server instances to use the same BlackBerry MDS Integration Service

If you installed a BlackBerry® MDS Integration Service instance on a computer that is separate from a computer that hosts a BlackBerry® Enterprise Server, you must connect the BlackBerry MDS Integration Service instance to a BlackBerry Enterprise Server so that you can use the BlackBerry MDS Integration Service to send BlackBerry® MDS Runtime Applications and updates to BlackBerry devices.

You can also connect the BlackBerry MDS Integration Service to multiple BlackBerry Enterprise Server instances if you want to make the BlackBerry MDS Runtime Applications that are stored in the BlackBerry MDS Application Repository available to users that are associated with multiple BlackBerry Enterprise Server instances.

  1. In the BlackBerry Administration Service, on the Servers and components menu, expand BlackBerry Solution topology > BlackBerry Domain > Component view > MDS Integration Service.
  2. Click the instance that you want to change.
  3. Click Edit instance.
  4. On the Supported Dispatcher instances tab, in the Available Dispatcher instances list, click the BlackBerry Enterprise Server instance that you want to configure to use the BlackBerry MDS Integration Service.
  5. Click Add.
  6. Repeat steps 4 and 5 for each BlackBerry Enterprise Server instance that you want to configure to use the BlackBerry MDS Integration Service.
  7. Click Save all.

Configure multiple BlackBerry Enterprise Server instances to use the same BlackBerry Collaboration Service

You can configure multiple BlackBerry® Enterprise Server instances to use the same BlackBerry Collaboration Service to connect to your organization's instant messaging server, and to manage requests from the collaboration client on users' BlackBerry devices.
  1. In the BlackBerry Administration Service, on the Servers and components menu, expand BlackBerry Solution topology > BlackBerry Domain > Component view > Collaboration.
  2. Expand the instant messaging environment.
  3. Click the instance that you want to change.
  4. Click Edit instance.
