Newbie Questions

Hi,

 

I've just recently installed the BPS and so far all's good.  I just have a couple questions.

 

1: Does the wireless sync also bring over the AD Global address list or just that persons address book.

 

2: I need to remove some default apps that the handsets come with (Live messenger/Yahoo etc.) Can I do this using the BPS? If so any pointers would be much appreciated.

 

3: What is the procedure to reassign a licence to a new user?

 

Cheers

>> No, BES does not do this.  It has been rumored that we'll see this in the next major release of BES (5.0)

 

2: I need to remove some default apps that the handsets come with (Live messenger/Yahoo etc.) Can I do this using the BPS? If so any pointers would be much appreciated.

 

>>  Depending on the application you may be able to block the service provided through IT Policy; take a look at the IT Policy Reference Guide. What all are you trying to block?

 

3: What is the procedure to reassign a licence to a new user?

 

 >> Remove the user from the BES that you no longer want the license assigned to and add a new user.  Licenses aren't tied to a specific user but rather to "a user" ... BES just does a count of users added.

 

Cheers

Re: Newbie Questions

Thanks Andy,

 

With the program removal here in NZ, they seem to come loaded with about 4 types of messenger and we wanted to remove them and just use the BB messenger for corporate usage.

Re: Newbie Questions

You may be able to remove the application with a use of an application control policy and the source cod / alx files.

 

I don't know if they're only controlled by those files or service books too; depends on the carrier.  The best / most reliable thing to do would be to block the services with the use of IT Policy.
