Preview the migration process 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 /preview and any of the following 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 /preview /basauthtype bas_auth /basusername admin /baspassword password /manifestPath "C:\Users\besadmin\Desktop\ET manifest files"

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

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