What are the differences and benefits of Automatic and Manual Provisioning of the BlackBerry Collaboration Service in the BlackBerry Solution?
Provisioning refers to the process that allows the BlackBerry Collaboration Service to act as a Trusted Application Server when communicating with the Front End Pool servers for Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 R2 and Microsoft Lync 2010. This is a requirement when communicating via MTLS.
Automatic Provisioning is the default method that the BlackBerry Collaboration Service uses to write itself as a Trusted Server in Active Directory. However, some large environments where there are many globally located Domain Controllers may have a lag in Replication, and may cause duplication of the Trusted Service entries.
Manual Provisioning is an available option that removes the necessity of the BlackBerry Collaboration Service to rewrite the Trusted Service entries in Active Directory, and only has to ensure that the entry is indeed in Active Directory.
Refer to the BlackBerry Enterprise Server product documentation (Installation & Configuration Guide) for more information about provisioning the BlackBerry Collaboration Service.
