BES in a samba domain

Postby lissom » Thu Apr 28, 2011 12:03 pm

Hello All,

I notice that the instructions for installing the BES Scalix connector read:
Installing Active Directory
An existing domain controller can be used, but for the purpose of these instructions it is assumed that a new domain controller will be setup on the BES server.

On the BES server run "dcpromo" to make the machine a domain controller for the domain
Add an account called "BESAdmin" to the domain.
Ensure the "BESAdmin" account has administrator privileges by adding it to the "Domain Admins" group.
Ensure the "BESAdmin" account has "Allow logon locally" and "log on as a service" privileges enabled in the domain security policy.

Note: The assignment of "Send As", "Receive As", "Administer Information Store" and "ViewOnlyAdmin" privileges in the RIM BES documentation can be ignored.

It is important that the remainder of the install process be completed using the Active Directory "BESAdmin" account.

I, however, am not using an AD domain. Is it still possible to get BES functionality under these circumstances?

No, but as a Windows Server is required anyway you can easily do a dcpromo on the system wher you want to install the BES.
