In case of some BlackBerry related issues it can be difficult to diagnose the problem, also it is important to distinguish if the issue is POA or BlackBerry related problem.


Use the IEMSTest utility to check if BES has all required permissions assigned to manage a mailbox:

1. Log into the BlackBerry server using remote desktop

2. In Start->Run execute the following command:runas /user:besadmin@<domain> cmd where <domain> is FQDN or netbios name of the Active Directory domain.

3. Type the besadmin password, in opened cmd window type:cd "C:\Program Files\Research In Motion\BlackBerry Enterprise Server\Utility"


4. Then confirm default profile name (besadmin) and select the mailbox which you are going to check.

Output should be like this:C:\Program Files\Research In Motion\BlackBerry Enterprise Server\Utility>IEMSTest
