I am unable to connect to mds services in Blackberry Manager, it is not accepting my user/password. I've checked server.xml as per this: http://www.blackberry.com/btsc/search.do?cmd=displ
and my user/password is correct.
I think that my problem is related to the name of the domain controller. A while back we had renamed it. At the time I opened up Blackberry Manager and things seemed to work but maybe I didn't try to connect to mds. Please see the attached picture. The original name of the DS was vanmivi2000, and it was changed to smivvandc02. When I opened server.xml, I saw that the old dc name was in the file. For example, server.xml contains this: "<Resource name="jdbc/db_server" auth="Container" type="javax.sql.DataSource" driverClassName="com.microsoft.sqlserver.jdbc.SQLS
Any helps on troubleshooting this is greatly appreciated.

Hi, thanks for the reply. No, I did not change the SID. It's been a long while since I installed or had to make any modifications on the BES - I don't know what SID is.
If I were to reinstall, would I be uninstalling everything and starting from scratch? Would I have to worry about some residual settings/configurations that may be saved somewhere?

Any other suggestions or ideas to try out?
If not, I could use some tips on uninstalling/reinstalling the BES. Perhaps I will start a new thread for that. Our setup is very simple, there are only 3 users. Would I just uninstall everything completely and start over from scratch, or is there some reason to try and keep the database or other settings in tact?

It is a local sql database.
I couldn't find any errors, but I'm not sure I was looking in the right place for the MDS logs. I checked c:\Program Files\Research In Motion\BlackBerry Enterprise Server\MDS\Servers\Blackberry\logs
and this folder was empty.
I should probably find out more about MDS just in case we don't need it for what we're doing here at work (I think I recall that MDS does not need to be installed).
