BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0 SP4 MR2 now supports configuring the BlackBerry Collaboration Service to properly communicate with a Microsoft Lync 2013 front end pool. This Maintenance Release Package is a slightly different type of release as compared to previous releases. This setup does alter the database.
The hardware and software pre-requisites to support Microsoft Lync 2013 has not changed from the existing pre-requisites for supporting Microsoft Lync 2010 and Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 R2. Refer to the Installation and Configuration Guide - BlackBerry Enterprise Server at http://docs.blackberry.com for further details.
The certificate requirements also have not changed from Microsoft Lync 2010 to Lync 2013. Refer to KB24960, especially the "Additional Information" section, for details on the MTLS certificate requirements to support Microsoft Lync 2010, and subsequently Lync 2013.
Also, there is no new Enterprise Instant Messenger client required. It is recommended to use Enterprise Instant Messenger client 2.6.15 to support BlackBerry smartphones using BlackBerry Device Software 5.0, and BlackBerry 6 to 7.1. The current Enterprise Instant Messaging client is available at www.blackberry.com/business.
When running the installer on a server that hosts a BlackBerry Collaboration Service, this new installer will prompt the administrator if they want to upgrade this instance to support Microsoft Lync 2013. If the desire is to not change this Collaboration Service instance at this time to Microsoft Lync 2013, select No, and the installer will continue with the currently installed collaboration service type and apply any necessary updates.
Once the BlackBerry Collaboration Service is upgraded to support Microsoft Lync 2013, the BlackBerry Administration Service Component View of this instance may display [INSTANCE_PAGE_DESCRIPTION_VIEW_10], [ENUM-com.rim.bes.basplugin.collaboration.dto.types.CollaborationConnectionTypeEnum-10], and [ENUM-com.rim.bes.basplugin.collaboration.dto.types.MCS2013TransportEnum-0] in place of proper references to Microsoft Lync 2013 and Protocol text.
Apply Maintenance Release 5 for BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0 SP4. This release has the database script updates included to fix the BlackBerry Administration Service Component View issue for displaying the correct Microsoft Lync 2013 information.
To address the Microsoft Lync 2013 text issues in the BlackBerry Administration Service Component View in , an additional database script is available, and can be requested through BlackBerry Technical Support Services.
Note: This script is now included in Maintenance Release 5.
