Configure the BlackBerry Directory Sync Tool to skip certificate validation

When the BlackBerry Directory Sync Tool connects to the administration console, it verifies that the FQDN that you configured the tool to use matches the SSL certificate of the administration console. You can configure the tool to skip this verification process for specific servers.
  1. On the computer that hosts the BlackBerry Directory Sync Tool, navigate to <drive>:\Program Files\Research In Motion\BlackBerry Resource Kit for BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10\BlackBerry Directory Sync Tool.
  2. In a text editor, open the DirectorySync.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 DirectorySync.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 Resource Kit for BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10).
  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 administration console. 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 DirectorySync.exe.config file.
After you finish: Restart the BlackBerry Directory Sync Tool.
