Configure the BlackBerry Enterprise Transporter to skip certificate validation

When the BlackBerry Enterprise Transporter for Microsoft Office 365 connects to the BlackBerry Administration Service, it verifies that the FQDN that it reads from the BlackBerry Configuration Database matches the SSL certificate of the BlackBerry Administration Service. You can configure the tool to skip this verification process for specific servers.
  1. On the computer that hosts the BlackBerry Enterprise Transporter, navigate to <drive>:\Program Files (x86)\Research In Motion\BlackBerry Enterprise Server Resource Kit\BlackBerry Enterprise Transporter for Microsoft Office 365.
  2. In a text editor, open the EnterpriseTransporter.exe.config file. If your computer's operating system uses UAC and does not permit you to modify the configuration file at this location, open the virtualized copy of the EnterpriseTransporter.exe.config file in the application data folder for the current user (for example, <drive>\Users\<user_name>\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files (x86)\Research In Motion\BlackBerry Enterprise Server Resource Kit).
  3. In the <appSettings> section, type the following: <add key="certValidationExcludedHosts" value="<server>"/>, where <server> is the FQDN or IP address of the computer that hosts the BlackBerry Administration Service. If you want to specify multiple computers, separate each FQDN or IP address using a comma ( , ) or semi-colon ( ; ). Example: <add key="certValidationExcludedHosts" value="server1.testnet.company.net;192.0.2.124"/>
  4. Save and close the EnterpriseTransporter.exe.config file.
Restart the BlackBerry Enterprise Transporter.
