Blackberry Enterprise Server Admin password reset

Recently had an issue with accessing the Blackberry Administration Service site for administrating the BES (v5.0.4). It stopped accepting valid AD credentials and there were no "local" BAS user accounts configured with Administrator access.

The following T-SQL script executed against the BESMgmt database in SSMS will reset the BAS "admin" user password to "blackberry". It will also create the "admin" user if one cannot already be found in the table BASUsers.

DECLARE 
        @DisplayName              VARCHAR(256),
        @Authentication           VARCHAR(256),
        @AuthenticatorTypeId      INT,
        @AuthenticatorInstanceId  INT,
        @ExternalAuthenticatorId  VARCHAR(255),
        @EncryptedPassword        VARCHAR(256)
 
/************************************************************
Start of editing required section
*************************************************************/
 
SET @DisplayName =               'System Administrator'                  -- Display name (Not always used)
SET @Authentication =            'BAS'                                   -- 'BAS' for BAS authentication
SET @EncryptedPassword =        '7B7ECF0DAF70D040345D8DD92607E274969F4BA5DFDFAEAC5DE775E5340CDF605D5762EC5D326498ADBE72E7434897025A8702D0237046F554DBCA5769B90154:7637B189'      -- Encrypted string of password 'blackberry'
 
 
/************************************************************
End of editing required section
********/
 
IF @Authentication LIKE 'BAS'
BEGIN
        SET @AuthenticatorTypeId =      0                               -- Set to 0 for BAS
        SET @AuthenticatorInstanceId =   0                               -- Set to 0 for BAS
        SET @ExternalAuthenticatorId = NULL
 
      IF NOT EXISTS (SELECT * FROM BASUsers WHERE LoginName = 'admin')
             EXEC SetUpBASorADAuthentication @DisplayName, @AuthenticatorTypeId, @AuthenticatorInstanceId, @ExternalAuthenticatorId, @EncryptedPassword
        ELSE 
          UPDATE    BASUsers 
          SET       LoginPassword = @EncryptedPassword
          WHERE     (LoginName = 'admin')
 
END

Useful script allowed access to the Blackberry Administration site while the AD authentication issue was resolved. Change the admin password to a secure one ASAP after gaining access.

IBM Verse for Android not syncing Sent Items

We have had a number of users recently reporting their Sent Items were no longer syncing to their IBM Verse for Android client. If they have multiple devices connected to Traveler then it is neccessary to get the device ID for the affected device. To do this run the Domino server console command "tell traveler show " to list their settings as below: Traveler: IBM Traveler has validated that it can access the database mail/jdoe.nsf.

Another bad WSUS update
Tue, Jul 12th 2016 11:07a   Paul Farris
After a Windows Update of one of our WSUS servers this week the WSUS service has started crashing. KB3159706 (https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3159706) seems to have caused the issue. Uninstalling the update (WUSA.exe uninstall /kb:3159706) has fixed the issue. More information is on Lar Lohmann Blem's Blog here: http://larslohmann.blogspot.co.uk/2016/07/wsus-server-crash.html

Domino file locking issue
Tue, May 17th 2016 8:32a   Paul Farris
Occasionally we get NSF files locked on clustered Domino servers and this results in an error like the one below when attempting to access them. Database Fixup: Unable to fixup database d:Dominodatamailjayz.nsf: This database is currently in use by another person or process, and cannot be accessed at this time. In order to share a Notes database, it mvia a Domino Server by all users of the database. This looks like a non-Domino process has a lock on the file but is actually the Cluster Repl
