Installing the BlackBerry MDS Connection Service

The BlackBerry® MDS Connection Service provides users with access to online content and applications on your organization's intranet or the Internet. By default, the BlackBerry® Enterprise Server includes the BlackBerry MDS Connection Service.

The BlackBerry MDS Connection 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 Connection Service by itself on a computer that is separate from the computer that hosts the BlackBerry Enterprise Server.

You can connect multiple BlackBerry Enterprise Server instances to a BlackBerry MDS Connection Service instance.

When you install the BlackBerry MDS Connection Service on a separate computer, you must assign at least one BlackBerry Enterprise Server instance to it during the installation process. The BlackBerry MDS Connection Service uses the BlackBerry Enterprise Server information to connect to the BlackBerry Attachment Service.

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