Best practice: Creating a Windows domain user account for installing the BlackBerry MVS

You should create an account for installing the BlackBerry Mobile Voice System. To create the account you must perform the following tasks:

  • Create a Windows domain user account.
  • Permit the Windows domain user account to log in to the Microsoft SQL Server and assign permissions.
  • Configure permissions for the Windows domain user account.

For more information about creating the Windows domain user account, see the BlackBerry MVS Installation Guide.

Create a Windows domain user account for installing the BlackBerry MVS software

You should create a dedicated Windows domain user account for installing the BlackBerry Mobile Voice System software. You should not use the besadmin account that is used to install the BlackBerry Enterprise Server because theBlackBerry MVS does not require any permissions on the email system. Using a dedicated user account provides the BlackBerry MVS administrator with more control over the BlackBerry MVS, the ability to troubleshoot BlackBerry MVS issues, and you can use the user account to modify the Microsoft SQL Server permissions.

For more information about creating a Windows domain user account for installing the BlackBerry MVS software, see the BlackBerry MVS Installation Guide.

Permit the Windows domain user account to log in to the Microsoft SQL Server and assign permissions

After you create a Windows domain user account for installing the BlackBerry Mobile Voice System software (for example, MVSadmin), you must assign the db_owner database role on the Microsoft SQL Server to the account so that the BlackBerry MVS setup application can add the necessary tables to the BlackBerry Configuration Database.

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

Configuring permissions on the Windows domain user account created for installing the BlackBerry MVS software

To install the BlackBerry Mobile Voice System software, the account that is used for the installation must be a member of the local administrators group on the Windows Server that is dedicated for the BlackBerry MVS. Without this permission, the BlackBerry MVS installation will not be successful.

For more information about configuring permissions, see the BlackBerry MVS Installation Guide.
