-move

Syntax: -move

You can use the -move parameter to move a user account, and any devices that are associated with that user account, to a different BlackBerry Device Service in the same BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 domain.

Optional parameters and subparameters are enclosed in square brackets ( [ ] ).

-move : move user
     -u <user name> : user name
        [-b <instance>] : instance name of the BlackBerry Device Service component
        [-utype <type>] : user type - display_name, email_address, login_name
     -t <instance> : instance name of the target BlackBerry Device Service component

Subparameter

Description

[-b <server_name>]

This subparameter specifies the BlackBerry Device Service instance for the action (for example, server1).

Use the name of the BlackBerry Device Service instance as it appears in the BlackBerry Administration Service.

-t <destination_server_name>

This subparameter specifies the BlackBerry Device Service instance that you want to move the user account to.

Use the name of the BlackBerry Device Service instance as it appears in the BlackBerry Administration Service (for example, server2).

-u <user_name>

This subparameter specifies the user account for the action. Searches are not case-sensitive. If the value that you specify contains a space, enclose the value in quotation marks (for example, "Julie Palmer").

Examples of searching for user accounts:
  • -u "Julie Palmer" -utype display_name
  • -u jpalmer@test.rim.net -utype email_address

If you do not specify a type using the -utype subparameter, the tool searches for user accounts using the display name first, then the email address. By default, searches match on substrings. For example, if you specify -u jpalmer@test.rim.net, and your organization's environment contains the user accounts jpalmer@test.rim.net, ojpalmer@test.rim.net, and rjpalmer@test.rim.net, the search identifies all three user accounts as valid results. If the tool finds more than one user account, the tool selects the user account that matches the value that you specified exactly (in this case, jpalmer@test.rim.net).

If the tool finds more than one user account, and none of the user accounts match the value that you specified exactly, the tool returns an error message stating that multiple matches were found.

If you do not want searches to match on substrings, specify the value using the following format: "\"<email_address_or_display_name>\"" (for example, "\"jpalmer@test.rim.net\"").

[-utype <type>]

This subparameter specifies which of the following options the tool uses to search for the user account:
  • display_name
  • email_address
  • login_name: name that the account uses to log in to the BlackBerry Administration Service
