Configuring minimum Microsoft SQL Server permissions for the Windows account that is used to run the BlackBerry MVS

To install the BlackBerry Mobile Voice System software, the account that you use requires the db_owner database role on the Microsoft SQL Server. The BlackBerry MVS setup application adds a new database role named rim_db_mvs_apps, which has the minimum Microsoft SQL Server permissions that are required for running the BlackBerry MVS.

Security conscious organizations might change the permissions from db_owner to rim_db_mvs_apps after the BlackBerry MVS installation is complete. By changing the database role on the BlackBerry MVS account, you can prevent any unauthorized changes to the BlackBerry Configuration Database. For any subsequent BlackBerry MVS installations or updates, you must restore the db_owner database role to the account used to run the BlackBerry MVS.

For more information about configuring the minimum Microsoft SQL Server permissions, see the BlackBerry MVS Installation Guide.
