Did you pick the Windows mobile options when you first installed the admin system, or did you reinstall the admin system a 2nd time and pick them?
This was a re-install, does it make a difference?
absolutely- reinstalling only affects the windows applications - it does not affect your policy database at all (that would be BAD).
You need to manually add the new options. You might want to get a services person in to help you, but the Windows Mobile ISET is sbwmfiles.ini if I remember right. You'll need to create an appropriate file group with the right attributes etc then import it as a file set. You should end up with a group of two files if I remember.
So, to summarize here's what you need to do:
- Log in to the sbadmin console
- Go to the system tab -> SafeBoot Filegroups
- Open the WM: Device Encryption for Mobile (or something) filegrouop
- Right-click in the opened filegroup, and select "Import file-set"
- Find the "sbwmfiles.ini" file in the root of your sbadmin folder
- Click OK, and you're a happy person
Note: here I assume that the filegroup still exists, which would be the most simple thing to use as the permissions are set correctly in there.
If it does not exist, simply create it (give it a nice name) and go to the properties to set the "Content" to "PDA Files".
I've looked for that file with out success in the installation CD. There are only 3 files in the PDA folder:
Are these the ones I should be importing?
Looks good, I've managed to create the install set, thanks for your help
Out of curiosity, would selecting the "update file groups" option under the System Tab find the missing file groups and update the database as well, or does that only look for updates for existing file groups?
AFAIK it only updates existing files - otherwise it would try to add all the options you elected not to add at the beginning wink
After upgrading on a test server from 5300 to 5500, it "updated" some groups and "added" others, like the 5.1.7 client files for DE. Give it a shot, you can always cancel or uncheck everything. I think it reads in all of the IST files (I think that is the extension) or INI files looking for new "file groups". It is definitely smoother than 4.x versions, although I wish there was an easy way to clean up the out-dated files from the server install folder.
