Installing the BlackBerry MDS Integration Service

The BlackBerry® MDS Integration Service connects the BlackBerry MDS Runtime Application on BlackBerry devices to enterprise applications.

The BlackBerry MDS Integration Service might use increased system resources when it processes content requests. If you want to minimize the impact this has on message delivery, you can install the BlackBerry MDS Integration Service by itself on a computer that is separate from the computer that hosts the BlackBerry Enterprise Server.

When you install the BlackBerry MDS Integration Service, you must select whether to create a BlackBerry MDS Integration Service pool, or add the BlackBerry MDS Integration Service instance to an existing pool. The BlackBerry MDS Integration Service pool permits multiple BlackBerry MDS Integration Service instances to balance the volume of traffic between them. For more information on BlackBerry MDS Integration Service pools, see the BlackBerry Enterprise Server Planning Guide.

When you install the BlackBerry MDS Integration Service on a separate computer, the installation process installs the BlackBerry MDS Integration Service and BlackBerry Controller. The BlackBerry Controller monitors the BlackBerry MDS Integration Service and restarts it if it stops responding.

The BlackBerry MDS Integration Service stores application data in the BlackBerry MDS Integration Service database. The setup application installs the BlackBerry MDS Integration Service database on the same database server that hosts the BlackBerry Configuration Database. You can install multiple BlackBerry MDS Integration Service instances that can use the same BlackBerry MDS Integration Service database.

During the installation process, you create the administrator account and publisher account for the BlackBerry MDS Integration Service. The BlackBerry MDS Integration Service uses the administrator account and publisher account when it publishes applications.
