Import the BlackBerry Proxy or Good Proxy CA certificate into the Java keystore on BEMS Skip Navigation

Import the
BlackBerry Proxy
or
Good Proxy
CA certificate into the
Java
keystore on
BEMS

Save a copy of the certificate that you exported to a convenient location on the computer that hosts
BEMS
(for example, C:\bemscert). For instructions, see Export the BlackBerry Proxy or Good Proxy CA certificate chain to your desktop.
  1. On the computer that hosts
    BEMS
    , verify the
    Java
    directory is specified in the JAVA_HOME system environment variable. In a command prompt, change to the %JAVA_HOME% folder. Type
    cd %JAVA_HOME%
    . For more information, see 'Configure the Java Runtime Environment' in the installation content.
  2. Make a backup of the
    Java
    keystore file. The
    Java
    keystore file is located at
    %JAVA_HOME%\lib\security\cacerts
    , where JAVA_HOME is confirmed in Step 1.
  3. Import the exported
    BlackBerry Control
    or
    BlackBerry Proxy
    root certificate. In a command prompt, type
    bin\keytool.exe -importcert -trustcacerts -file"<
    drive
    >:\bemscert\bproot.cer" -keystore lib\security\cacerts -alias gdca -storepass changeit
    The -alias value must be unique in the destination keystore. If it is duplicated, you might experience import errors. You can output the cacerts keystore to a text file to manually confirm the existing certificates using a text editor. Type
    bin\keytool.exe -list -v -keystore lib\security\cacerts > c:\bemscert\cacertsoutput.txt
    For more information about keystore commands, see Keystore commands.
    If you do not specify the -keystore parameter correctly or omit it, the keytool creates a new keystore.
    BEMS
    services do not use the new keystore.”
  4. If you did not import the
    BlackBerry Control
    root certificate into the
    Windows
    keystore, import it now. For instructions, see Import the Good Proxy or BlackBerry Proxy CA certificate to the BEMS Windows keystore.
  5. Restart the
    Good Technology Common Services
    service in the
    Windows
    Service Manager.
Configure the Core
BEMS
service for communicating to
BlackBerry Dynamics
. For instructions, see Configure the BlackBerry Dynamics server in BEMS.
