Provisioning the BlackBerry Collaboration Service as a trusted application

If you install Microsoft® Office Communications Server 2007 R2 or Microsoft® Lync™ Server 2010 for instant messaging, you must provision the BlackBerry® Collaboration Service as a trusted application in Microsoft® Active Directory®.

If you add the Windows® account that runs the BlackBerry Collaboration Service to the RTCUniversalServerAdmins group, the BlackBerry Collaboration Service is automatically provisioned as a trusted application. The RTCUniversalServerAdmins group is created when you install Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 R2 or Microsoft Lync Server 2010.

If you do not add the Windows account that runs the BlackBerry Collaboration Service to the RTCUniversalServerAdmins group, you must manually provision each BlackBerry Collaboration Service instance as a trusted application. If you change the listening port number or if the FQDN of the instant-messaging pool changes, you need to repeat the manual provisioning task. If you restart the BlackBerry Collaboration Service, you do not need to repeat the manual provisioning task.

Manually provision the BlackBerry Collaboration Service as a trusted application

Before you begin:
  • Make sure that the Windows® account that you use to complete this task is a member of the RTCUniversalServerAdmins group or a group with similar permissions.
  • Turn off automatic configuration of the BlackBerry® Collaboration Service as a trusted application.
  1. On the computer that hosts the BlackBerry Collaboration Service or on any computer that is in the BlackBerry Domain, navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\Research In Motion\BlackBerry Enterprise Server\BBIM\Servers\instance\config.
  2. Run the BCSProvisioner.exe file.
  3. In the BCSProvisioner dialog box, perform the following actions to complete the provisioning process:
    1. In the Office Communications Server Pool drop-down box, select the FQDN that you specified during the BlackBerry® Enterprise Server installation.
    2. In the BlackBerry Collaboration Service server FQDN field, type the FQDN of the computer that hosts the BlackBerry Collaboration Service.
    3. In the Listening port field, type the port number that you specified during the BlackBerry Enterprise Server installation. The default port number is 65061.
    4. Click Provision BCS.
  4. In the Windows Services, restart the BlackBerry Collaboration Service.
