This node in the navigation tree represents the configuration (SQL) database that is being accessed via the Configuration Server.  This relates to a single mSuite community - a set of mSuite servers using common configuration.

There are 6 actions available from this node.


   Manage mSuite Licenses

Right mouse click on the node with the database instance name in the navigation tree then select All Tasks > Manage mSuite licenses from the pop-up menu

The License Key dialog will be displayed.  This displays a summary of the existing license key.  You can use the Replace Key... button to enter a new key if required.


   Generate mCenter Recovery File

1.Your mSuite installation contains unique data that has been generated by the installation process.  Provided you make a security copy of this information and regularly back-up your configuration database, you will be able to restore your system should it be necessary.
2.Right mouse click on the node that is immediately underneath mSuite Administration Console in the navigation tree.  Select All Tasks > Generate mCenter Recovery File from the pop-up menu.
3.Enter and confirm a password that will be used to protect the information that will be saved.  You must remember this password as you will need it to restore the recovery file.  Click OK to continue.
4.You will now be asked to choose a file name and a location to save the recovery file to.  Once you are happy with the location, click OK to continue.
5.A message box will be displayed to inform you that the recovery file has been saved.


   View System Information

Right mouse click on the node with the database instance name in the navigation tree then select All Tasks > View System Information from the pop-up menu.

A dialog will be displayed that shows:

Provisioning address - the unique address that device users can use to connect to this system when provisioning.
Serial number - the unique software serial number allocated to this customer
Licensed users - the number of users supported by the license.
Active users - the number of different users that have accessed the system in the last 30 days.
Database server - the name of the machine hosting the configuration database.
Database name - the database name of the configuration database.


The Copy To Clipboard button copies all of the above information (including the Provisioning address) to the clipboard.  It can then be pasted into an email or an SMS message to be sent to users who need to provision their devices using the provisioning portal.  See Provisioning Devices.

   Lotus Traveler Configuration

mSuite supports Lotus Traveler as an alternative messaging client to mNotes.

Right mouse click on the node with the database instance name in the navigation tree then Select All Tasks > Lotus Traveler Configuration from the pop-up menu.  This will execute the configuration wizard for Lotus Traveler.


  Remove Database

A single mSuite snap-in can manage multiple mSuite installations.  Installations can be added at the administration console node see: Administration Console

To remove a database, right mouse click on the node with the name of the database that you want to remove then select All Tasks > Remove Database from the pop-up menu.


   Generate Provisioning Portal SMS Message

This runs a wizard which constructs the text of a message to send to a user's device (by SMS) to simplify the process of provisioning the device.

It applies only to 'over the air' provisioning of Windows Mobile and/or Symbian devices with full mSuite clients.

NOTE: the mSuite Administration console is not capable of sending SMS messages.  It simply shows you the text that the SMS message should contain.  You will need to some other tool to actually send the message.
