As lots of you probably (noticed) last week RIM released it’s SP3 for BES 5.0. Good to know besides all other functionality, we now have Lync support in the box. There is now support for additional instant messaging servers.
The BlackBerry Enterprise Server is designed to support the following
instant messaging servers:
• Microsoft® Office Communications Server 2007 R2
• Microsoft® Lync™ Server 2010
BTW: if you would like to see how Blackberry can be integrated with Microsoft Lync feel free to contact me. We are running SP3 since its official release. Really works great. www.e-office.com/lync Check out this site since we are working on a indepth blog on this.
Good to know also: (read also the official release notes)
BlackBerry Administration Service fixed issues: When you installed Microsoft® Office Communications Server 2007 R2 or Microsoft® Lync™ Server, and navigated to BlackBerry Solution topology > Component view > Collaboration, the BlackBerry Administration Service listed IBM® Lotus® Sametime® as the component name in the Instance information section. (DT 890401)
Setup application known issue: If you rerun a setup application, it will mistakenly show the BlackBerry Collaboration Service as installed if the following events occurred during the upgrade process:
• you select Microsoft® Lync™ Server 2010
• you click Next
• you go back to the Setup Options page to unselect the BlackBerry Collaboration Service Release Notes Setup application known issues
you complete the upgrade process without the BlackBerry Collaboration Service (DT 1039504)
Upgrade process known issues: If you installed the BlackBerry Collaboration Service with BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0 SP2, when you upgrade to BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0 SP3 and select Microsoft® Office Communications Server 2007 R2 or Microsoft® Lync™ Server as the instant messaging server, the port numbers do not display the default values (5061 for TLS or
5060 for TCP, and 65061 for the listening port). (DT 1000050)
Workaround: You must type the port numbers to specify the instant messaging settings
