Summary

 

This article applies to the following:

  • BlackBerry® Desktop Software

 

Procedure

 

The BlackBerry Device Simulator can be connected to an account on the BlackBerry Enterprise Server (BES) to allow it to communicate similar to a real BlackBerry smartphone:

  • Send and receive emails
  • Access the network through the BES MDS-CS instance
  • and more

 

To get the simulator Enterprise Activated, complete the following steps:

  • Run the BlackBerry Device Simulator from the BlackBerry JDE or from the Start menu.
  • In the BlackBerry Device Simulator, click Turn Wireless Off.
  • Open BlackBerry® Desktop Software
  • From the BlackBerry Device Simulator, click Simulate and select USB Connected or Serial Connected.

If using BlackBerry® Desktop Software version earlier than version 5.0Smiley Frustratedelect YES to switch to the new BlackBerry device.

  • Follow the instructions to generate a new encryption key.
  • On the Initial Plug-in: Verifying Applications dialog box, click Cancel.
  • Once the initial synchronization is complete, the enterprise activation process begins.

If using BlackBerry® Desktop Software version 5.0 or later:

  • From the Desktop Software select the "Device Options..." button
  • In the new window, select the "Enterprise Email" tab
  • In this tab select your email from the "Email System" drop-down then choose the correct profile from the subsequent pop-up
  • Follow the instructions to generate a new encryption key.
  • Once the initial synchronization is complete, the enterprise activation process begins.

After the enterprise activation process is complete, you will be able to use the BlackBerry Device Simulator like a regular BlackBerry device.

 

Note: Additionally, you may need to remove the net_rim_sdk_simulationSB.cod file from the BlackBerry Device Simulator directory. However, do not delete this COD file because you will need to restore it if you use the BlackBerry Device Simulator with the Email Server Simulator (ESS). After doing so, delete the DMP files from the BlackBerry Device Simulator directory, start the BlackBerry Device Simulator, and repeat the steps above.

 

To verify that the BlackBerry Device Simulator has connected to the BlackBerry Enterprise Server using serial bypass, click the Statistics tab in BlackBerry Device Manager.

  • If the BlackBerry Device Simulator is connected, you should see Bypass. Expand this menu to view statistics (for example, packets sent/received).

    Or

  • If only the Time Connected statistic appears, without the Bypass statistics, the BlackBerry Device Simulator is not connected to the BlackBerry Enterprise Server over serial bypass and the enterprise activation process cannot occur. Delete the DMP files from the BlackBerry Device Simulator directory and complete the above steps in order to remove the net_rim_sdk_simulationSB.cod file from the BlackBerry Simulator directory. Alternatively, you can attempt this procedure with a BlackBerry device to verify that your BlackBerry Enterprise Server configuration supports serial bypass.
