Installing Cisco Unity Mobile Message Access for BlackBerry 1.0(1)
As part of the installation process, you will need to enter the IP or fully qualified DNS address for the Cisco Unity server that you want the BlackBerry server to communicate with, and indicate whether Cisco Unity will use SSL connections for those communications.
Do the following procedure to install Cisco Unity Mobile Message Access for BlackBerry from the Cisco Unity DVD or CD, or from a network drive. You must install the Mobile Message Access for BlackBerry plug-in on each BlackBerry server that you want to communicate with Cisco Unity.
To Install Cisco Unity Mobile Message Access for BlackBerry 1.0(1)
Step 1 Confirm that the Cisco Unity Mobile Message Access for BlackBerry requirements have been met. See the "Requirements" section.

Caution When prompted, do not specify that Cisco Unity and BlackBerry will use HTTPS connections unless you have already set up Cisco Unity to use SSL when it communicates with a BlackBerry server.
Step 5 Restart the BlackBerry server.
Step 6 As applicable, repeat the procedure on each BlackBerry server in your organization.
Limitations and Restrictions
Messages with WAV Attachments Cannot Be Played
In addition to Cisco Unity voice messages, a BlackBerry device displays URLs for e-mails that contain WAV attachments. When subscribers click the URLs for messages with WAV attachments, Cisco Unity does not allow the BlackBerry device to play the messages.
Plug-in Allows the BlackBerry Server to Communicate with Only One Cisco Unity Server
Although a single Cisco Unity server can communicate with several BlackBerry servers, the BlackBerry plug-in allows the BlackBerry server to communicate with only a single Cisco Unity server at a time—even if the Cisco Unity servers in your organization are set up to use digital networking. In addition, installing the plug-in more than once on a BlackBerry server for the purpose of configuring each instance to communicate with a different Cisco Unity server does not work. The last installation of the plug-in overwrites the previous ones.
Subscribers Must Hang Up Before Selecting Another Message When BlackBerry Device Is the Phone Used for Message Playback
When the BlackBerry device is the phone used for message playback, subscribers cannot select another message from the BlackBerry Inbox. To view or play another message, they must stop message playback by ending the call. The same is not true when subscribers use a different phone as the message playback device.
If you have an account with Cisco.com, you can use Bug Toolkit to find more information on the caveats in this section, in addition to caveats of any severity for any release. Bug Toolkit is available at the website http://www.cisco.com/pcgi-bin/Support/Bugtool/launch_bugtool.pl.

Cisco Product Security Overview
Cisco provides a free online Security Vulnerability Policy portal at this URL:
From this site, you will find information about how to:
•Report security vulnerabilities in Cisco products.
•Obtain assistance with security incidents that involve Cisco products.
•Register to receive security information from Cisco.
A current list of security advisories, security notices, and security responses for Cisco products is available at this URL:
To see security advisories, security notices, and security responses as they are updated in real time, you can subscribe to the Product Security Incident Response Team Really Simple Syndication (PSIRT RSS) feed. Information about how to subscribe to the PSIRT RSS feed is found at this URL:
Reporting Security Problems in Cisco Products
Cisco is committed to delivering secure products. We test our products internally before we release them, and we strive to correct all vulnerabilities quickly. If you think that you have identified a vulnerability in a Cisco product, contact PSIRT:
•For Emergencies only — email@example.com
An emergency is either a condition in which a system is under active attack or a condition for which a severe and urgent security vulnerability should be reported. All other conditions are considered nonemergencies.
•For Nonemergencies — firstname.lastname@example.org
In an emergency, you can also reach PSIRT by telephone:
•1 877 228-7302
•1 408 525-6532
Tip We encourage you to use Pretty Good Privacy (PGP) or a compatible product (for example, GnuPG) to encrypt any sensitive information that you send to Cisco. PSIRT can work with information that has been encrypted with PGP versions 2.x through 9.x.
Never use a revoked or an expired encryption key. The correct public key to use in your correspondence with PSIRT is the one linked in the Contact Summary section of the Security Vulnerability Policy page at this URL:
The link on this page has the current PGP key ID in use.
If you do not have or use PGP, contact PSIRT at the aforementioned e-mail addresses or phone numbers before sending any sensitive material to find other means of encrypting the data.
Obtaining Technical Assistance
Cisco Technical Support provides 24-hour-a-day award-winning technical assistance. The Cisco Technical Support & Documentation website on Cisco.com features extensive online support resources. In addition, if you have a valid Cisco service contract, Cisco Technical Assistance Center (TAC) engineers provide telephone support. If you do not have a valid Cisco service contract, contact your reseller.
Cisco Technical Support & Documentation Website
The Cisco Technical Support & Documentation website provides online documents and tools for troubleshooting and resolving technical issues with Cisco products and technologies. The website is available 24 hours a day, at this URL:
Access to all tools on the Cisco Technical Support & Documentation website requires a Cisco.com user ID and password. If you have a valid service contract but do not have a user ID or password, you can register at this URL:
Note Use the Cisco Product Identification (CPI) tool to locate your product serial number before submitting a web or phone request for service. You can access the CPI tool from the Cisco Technical Support & Documentation website by clicking the Tools & Resources link under Documentation & Tools. Choose Cisco Product Identification Tool from the Alphabetical Index drop-down list, or click the Cisco Product Identification Tool link under Alerts & RMAs. The CPI tool offers three search options: by product ID or model name; by tree view; or for certain products, by copying and pasting show command output. Search results show an illustration of your product with the serial number label location highlighted. Locate the serial number label on your product and record the information before placing a service call.
Submitting a Service Request
Using the online TAC Service Request Tool is the fastest way to open S3 and S4 service requests. (S3 and S4 service requests are those in which your network is minimally impaired or for which you require product information.) After you describe your situation, the TAC Service Request Tool provides recommended solutions. If your issue is not resolved using the recommended resources, your service request is assigned to a Cisco engineer. The TAC Service Request Tool is located at this URL:
For S1 or S2 service requests, or if you do not have Internet access, contact the Cisco TAC by telephone. (S1 or S2 service requests are those in which your production network is down or severely degraded.) Cisco engineers are assigned immediately to S1 and S2 service requests to help keep your business operations running smoothly.
To open a service request by telephone, use one of the following numbers:
Asia-Pacific: +61 2 8446 7411 (Australia: 1 800 805 227)
EMEA: +32 2 704 55 55
USA: 1 800 553-2447

Definitions of Service Request Severity
To ensure that all service requests are reported in a standard format, Cisco has established severity definitions.
Severity 1 (S1)—An existing network is down, or there is a critical impact to your business operations. You and Cisco will commit all necessary resources around the clock to resolve the situation.
Severity 2 (S2)—Operation of an existing network is severely degraded, or significant aspects of your business operations are negatively affected by inadequate performance of Cisco products. You and Cisco will commit full-time resources during normal business hours to resolve the situation.
Severity 3 (S3)—Operational performance of the network is impaired, while most business operations remain functional. You and Cisco will commit resources during normal business hours to restore service to satisfactory levels.
Severity 4 (S4)—You require information or assistance with Cisco product capabilities, installation, or configuration. There is little or no effect on your business operations.
