BlackBerry® Web Desktop Manager is a web application that allows BlackBerry smartphone users to manage their BlackBerry smartphones through a browser. The BlackBerry® Administration Service is the BlackBerry® Enterprise Server component that processes and manages BlackBerry® Web Desktop Manager tasks.  During the installation of the BlackBerry Administration Service, the Domino® Internet Inter-ORB Protocol (DIIOP) server and DIIOP ports must be specified correctly.

DIIOP server - The Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN) of the IBM® Lotus® Domino® server running the DIIOP task should be entered with no protocol prefix (such as http://). For example, a correctly entered Lotus Domino Server web address would be: . The DIIOP task can be running on either the Lotus Domino Server that the BlackBerry Administration Service is installed on, or on another Lotus Domino Server in the Lotus Domino domain.

DIIOP port - The server and port should be entered in the following format: < :PORT >

Note: The DIIOP port number can be determined by entering the following command in the Domino Console:

show tasks

The result should include a line such as DIIOP Server Listen for connect on TCP port:63148 , where 63148 is the port number.

CollapseAdditional Information

To ensure that the DIIOP tasks is started automatically with each server restart, add DIIOP to the ServerTasks section of the notes.ini on the Lotus Domino Server.
