As enterprise grade software, the BlackBerry Enterprise Server software can be installed on a single server, or the BlackBerry Enterprise Server roles/components can be installed on multiple separate servers. When monitoring the BlackBerry roles/components with the OpsLogix Management Pack for BES, the Management Pack is licensed per BlackBerry server. The overview below shows if/when a license is needed for the BES Management Pack, when the BlackBerry Enterprise Server roles/components are installed over multiple servers.

List of possible services (BlackBerry components) that need to be licensed when installed on a BlackBerry server:

  • Attachment Service
  • Enterprise Server (service)
  • MDS Service
  • Router Service

If one of the above services is installed on a BlackBerry server, the BlackBerry server with the service installed always needs to be licensed. If multiple services are combined on one server only one license is needed for that particular server.

List of possible services (BlackBerry components) that DO NOT need to be licensed:

  • Administration Service
  • Collaboration Service
  • BAS (BlackBerry Administration Service)
  • BMS (BlackBerry Monitoring Service)

If one or more of the above services that do not need licensing is installed on a BlackBerry server (and none of the services are installed on the same server that do need licensing), no license is required for the BlackBerry server.
