Move user accounts to a different MDM domain using the command prompt

  • Enable the onboarding feature in the destination MDM domain. See Enable onboarding for the destination MDM domain.
  • Create and configure a manifest file. You can create and configure a manifest file using the sample manifest file that is included in the BlackBerry Enterprise Transporter installation files, or by using the BlackBerry Enterprise Transporter user interface. It is a best practice to create and configure the manifest file using the user interface.
  1. On the computer that hosts the BlackBerry Enterprise Transporter, at the command prompt, navigate to <drive>:/Program Files (x86)/Research in Motion/BlackBerry Enterprise Server Resource Kit/BlackBerry Enterprise Transporter for Microsoft Office 365.
  2. Type enterprisetransporter /console /execute and any of the following optional parameters:

    Item

    Description

    /basauthtype <type>

    This parameter specifies which of the following options the tool uses to authenticate with the BlackBerry Administration Service:
    • ad_auth: use Microsoft Active Directory authentication. You must also specify the /basdomain parameter.
    • bas_auth: use BlackBerry Administration Service authentication. You must also specify the /basusername and /baspassword parameters.

    If you do not specify an authentication type, by default, the tool uses BlackBerry Administration Service authentication (bas_auth).

    /basdomain <domain>

    This parameter specifies the Microsoft Active Directory domain for the BlackBerry Administration Service.

    Use this parameter when you specify /basauthtype ad_auth.

    /basusername <user_name>

    This parameter specifies the user name of the administrator account that the tool uses to authenticate with the BlackBerry Administration Service.

    Use this parameter when you specify /basauthtype bas_auth.

    If you use this parameter, you must also specify /baspassword <password>.

    /baspassword <password>

    This parameter specifies the password of the administrator account that the tool uses to authenticate with the BlackBerry Administration Service.

    Use this parameter when you specify /basauthtype bas_auth.

    If you use this parameter, you must also specify a value for the /basusername parameter.

    /manifestPath <drive>:<file_path>

    This parameter specifies the path to the manifest file. If you do not specify a path, the tool uses the manifest.xml file that is in the folder that the tool is installed in. If the file path contains spaces, enclose the file path in quotation marks ( " " ).

Example: Preview the migration process using BlackBerry Administration Service authentication

enterprisetransporter /console /execute /basauthtype bas_auth /basusername admin /baspassword password /manifestPath "C:\Users\besadmin\Desktop\ET manifest files"

enterprisetransporter /console /execute /basauthtype ad_auth /basdomain domain1.testnet.net /manifestPath "C:\Users\besadmin\Desktop\ET manifest files"

To stop the migration process, press CTRL+BREAK. To shut down the BlackBerry Enterprise Transporter, press CTRL+C.

To verify that the migration process completed, search for the user accounts in the destination BlackBerry Administration Service. Verify that the user accounts are assigned to the correct BlackBerry Enterprise Server instance, group, IT policy, and software configuration.
