Set owner information on a BlackBerry device

You can specify the owner information that appears on the screen of the BlackBerry® device when it is locked using one of the following options:
  • for a single line of text, you can use the -info parameter to specify the information in quotation marks
  • for multiple lines of text, you can create an input file that contains the information and then use the -infofile parameter to specify the input file
  1. To open the command window for the BlackBerry Enterprise Server User Administration Tool, on the computer that hosts the tool, on the taskbar, click Start > Programs > BlackBerry Enterprise Server Resource Kit > BlackBerry Enterprise Server User Administration Tool > BlackBerry Enterprise Server User Administration Tool.
  2. Type besuseradminclient <credentials> -set_owner_info, and specify the owner name (-name) and owner information (-info), or specify an input file (-infofile <filename>) that contains the information for the user account. Type the following parameters:
    • -u <user_name>
    • -b <instance>

Example: -infofile input file

In a text editor, create a text file, such as the following:

Sam Moser

Desk phone: <phone_number>

Mobile phone: <phone_number>

besuseradminclient -username admin -password password -set_owner_info -info "Sam Moser" -u smoser@test.rim.net -b server01

besuseradminclient -username admin -password password -infofile userinformation.txt -set_owner_info -u smoser@test.rim.net -b server01
