Unable to add BlackBerry Domain during BlackBerry Mobile Fusion Studio installation

Article ID: KB28415

Type: Support Content

Last Modified: 02-17-2012


Product(s) Affected:

  • BlackBerry Enterprise Server for Microsoft Exchange
  • BlackBerry Mobile Fusion Studio
  • BlackBerry Device Service
  • BlackBerry® Mobile Fusion Studio
  • BlackBerry® Enterprise Server for Microsoft® Exchange

During the  installation of the BlackBerry® Mobile Fusion Studio software when adding a BlackBerry Domain the following error is displayed: "could not retrieve certificate from domain [server name]"


The BlackBerry Mobile Fusion installer is unable to access the certificate for the selected domain due to either network or firewall configuration.


To troubleshoot the issue, check the following for the BlackBerry Administration Server :

    1. Confirm that the BlackBerry Administration Service services are running and that you can access the BlackBerry Administration Service console from the server that BlackBerry Mobile Fusion Studio is being installed on.
    2. If the page does not come up on the BlackBerry Mobile Fusion Studio server, check if you can ping the BlackBerry Administration Service server.
    3. If you can't ping the Blackberry Administration Service server, check if the Microsoft Windows Firewall is enabled on the BlackBerry Administration Service server, which could be blocking the access.
