Configure the source domain and the destination domain

To configure the tool for the migration process, you must specify information about the source BlackBerry Configuration Database and the destination BlackBerry Configuration Database.

Create a manifest file or open a saved manifest file.
  1. In the BlackBerry Enterprise Transporter, in the Step 2: BlackBerry Databases section, in the Source Domain section, click Configure.
  2. In the Label drop-down list, perform one of the following actions:
    • To configure the information for the source BlackBerry Configuration Database for the first time, click <new>.
    • To choose an existing source BlackBerry Configuration Database, click the appropriate label name.
  3. In the Edit/New section, in the Label field, type a label for the source BlackBerry Configuration Database.
  4. In the SQL Server field, type the FQDN or IP address of the Microsoft SQL Server that hosts the source BlackBerry Configuration Database.
  5. In the Authentication drop-down list, perform one of the following actions:
    • To use database authentication to access the source BlackBerry Configuration Database, click SQL Server Authentication. In the User Name and Password fields, type the login information for the database administrator account that you want the tool to use.
    • To use Windows authentication to access the source BlackBerry Configuration Database using the login information of the current database administrator account, click Windows NT Authentication (Current User).
    • To use Windows authentication to access the source BlackBerry Configuration Database using the login information of a different database administrator account, click Windows NT Authentication (Specify User). In the User Name and Password fields, type the login information for the database administrator account. The domain of the specified administrator account must trust the current domain that hosts the BlackBerry Enterprise Transporter.
    If you click Windows NT Authentication (Specify User), the Authentication drop-down list changes to Windows NT Authentication (Current User) when you open the Configure Database window again.
  6. In the Database field, type the name of the source BlackBerry Configuration Database (for example, BESMgmt).

  8. Click OK.
  9. In the Step 2: BlackBerry Databases section, in the Destination Domain section, click Configure.
