Assign an activation password to a group

You can use the BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 User Administration Tool to assign an activation password to the members of a group, and to configure how long the activation password is available.

  1. To open the command window for the BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 User Administration Tool, on the computer that hosts the tool, on the taskbar, click Start > All Programs > BlackBerry Resource Kit for BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 > BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 User Administration Tool.
  2. Type besuseradminclient <credentials> -change -g <group_name> .
  3. Perform one of the following actions:
    • To generate a random activation password and email it to the group, type -wrandom.
    • To specify the activation password, type -w <password>. To specify the number of hours before the activation password expires, type -wt <expiry_time>. The default expiry time is 48 hours. If you use this option, contact the users in the group and give them the activation password.

Example: Assigning an activation password to a group that expires in 24 hours

besuseradminclient -username admin -password password -change -g Administrators -w Activate1234 -wt 24

Example: Generating and emailing a random activation password to a group

besuseradminclient -username admin -password password -change -g Administrators -wrandom
