Generate a key store

To generate a key store and add the self-signed SSL certificate for the BlackBerry Administration Service , you can use the keytool utility from a Windows® command line.
Before you begin: Download the self-signed SSL certificate from the BlackBerry® Administration Service to a temporary folder on your computer.
1. On the taskbar, click Start > Run and type cmd to open a Windows command prompt.
2. Locate the bin folder of the active JRE™, by performing the following actions:
1. In the Windows Control Panel, open Java.
2. In the Java Control Panel window, click the Java tab.
3. In the Java Application Runtime Settings section, click View.
4. In the JNLP Runtime Settings window, on the User tab, find and write down the path of the first platform in the list. For example, if the first path is C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\bin\javaw.exe, then C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\bin\ is the path of the bin folder for the active JRE.
3. Use the cd command to navigate to the bin folder of the active JRE.
`cd C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\bin`
4. Invoke the keytool utility to add the SSL certificate for the BlackBerry Administration Service to a key store.
`keytool -import -trustcacerts -file C:\Temp\BAA\bascert.cer -keystore bas.keystore -storepass <password> -alias bas`
5. Type y and press ENTER.
