Installing the BlackBerry Administration Service

The BlackBerry® Administration Service permits you to manage a BlackBerry Domain through a web-based application. A BlackBerry Domain consists of one BlackBerry Configuration Database and all BlackBerry® Enterprise Server instances and remote components that use the BlackBerry Configuration Database.

You can install the BlackBerry Administration Service with other BlackBerry Enterprise Server components or by itself on a separate computer. You can install the BlackBerry Administration Service on a separate computer to limit the impact that the BlackBerry Administration Service might have on system resources and to prevent administrators in your organization from accessing any part of the computer that hosts the BlackBerry Enterprise Server. If you install the BlackBerry Administration Service before you install a BlackBerry Enterprise Server, the installation process can create and populate the BlackBerry Configuration Database.

When you install the BlackBerry Administration Service, you can install the BlackBerry® Web Desktop Manager and select whether you want administrators to use Windows® authentication or BlackBerry Administration Service authentication to log in to the BlackBerry Administration Service. You must verify that all administrators have access to the BlackBerry Administration Service web address (https://<computer_name>:<port>/webconsole/app).
