After adding a user to the BlackBerry Mobile Voice System Console, the BlackBerry MVS Server sends provisioning data to BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10. The MVS BES Connector logs are showing provisioning data sent to BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10, however, the provisioning package expires indicating it has not been delivered to the BlackBerry smartphone.


During installation of BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10, Mobile Data Service Push Encryption was enabled. If MDS Push Encryption is enabled, then provisioning traffic from the BlackBerry MVS Server to the BlackBerry MDS will be restricted.
