BESX Application Server Service Terminated

Setup a Blackberry Enterprise Server Express on a SBS 2003 client. Install went fine and could connect to the Blackberry Administrator Console fine. Did a restart of the server and then could not connect to the Blackberry Administrator Console. Server log indicated the Blackberry Administrator Service kept trying to start and then fail every min. Found this on RIM’s tech support:

I got this working by going into the registry and reserving the following ports:

48858, 48857, 48855, 45588, 49955, 45599

Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then click OK.

Locate and then click the following subkey:


Right-click ReservedPorts, and then click Modify.

Paste the following at the bottom


After the registry change then stop and start the DNS Server Service and then stop and start the Blackberry Administrator Service. If that does not work then restart the server.
