Method 2 - Update the IT policy rules definitions using the loadbesmetadata.exe tool
Complete this procedure for the following versions of the BlackBerry Enterprise Server:
- BlackBerry Enterprise Server version 4.0 to 4.1 SP7

- In the root of the temporary folder, type loadbesmetadata.exe -i EBayITPolicyPack.xml and press Enter. For BlackBerry Enterprise Server version 4.1 SP4 running in a Windows® environment with Japanese fonts, make sure that the IT policy rules definitions updates are imported in the Japanese language by typing loadbesmetadata.exe -i itpolicytemplate04242008.xml -l jp_ja in the command prompt.
