Note: BlackBerry 10 smartphone are able to be enrolled successfully.

This is caused by a proxy authentication issue between components of BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10.

Ensure there are no proxy or firewall restrictions between the Universal Device Service components and the Licensing Server.

Also make sure in Internet Explorer settings that Bypass proxy server for local addresses is configured accordingly.
