wireless activation not working
 
The etp.dat file that is sent from RIM during the activation process is making it to the users inbox.

On the BlackBerry itself it is hanging at the activation screen:

activating [email address]...
retrying
activating [email address]...
retrying

And so on. At each retry attempt it generates another email and send it to the users inbox.

Any ideas here?

KB13458 - The BlackBerry smartphone shows Activating or Retrying status during EA - Port3101.org : Your BES Connection

Hello friends. This still isn't working. I've run through all seven resolutions in that documentation to no avail. The email is reaching the users inbox with the etp.dat as an attachment. There are three attempts by the BlackBerry to activate and it generates 3 emails that reach the users inbox each time. The emails are 20 minutes apart.

One thing I notice is that when I run the iemstest.exe against the account I'm trying to activate I get all successes.

The BES server sits in a different site than the Exchange server it is trying to reach. I am using BES 5.0 & I have Exchange 2007 SP2.

Exchange Permissions
 
Any gurus want to take a stab at this? I hired a consultant and he looked at my environment and setup and said it all checked out ok. I've put a call for support in with RIM and am waiting to hear from them.

I reread the documentation & rebuilt the server from the ground up and corrected my mistakes I made along the way the first time as I went and I get the exact same result as below. Every 13 minutes I get those same errors in the event log & it tells me that the one user I have "isn't started". I feel it's exchange permission related but as the consultant pointed out - it all checks out ok.

My next step is to try installing 4.1 and get it going with exchange. That or I'm going to give everyone blankets & matches and they will have to resort to sending smoke signals.

I have just installed BES 4.1 on a fresh box. As soon as I add the very first user I get the exact same messages in my application log.

working now
 
And the good news is it is working now. This afternoon I accidentally rebooted my exchange server and noticed some different items in the logs on the BES server after exchange came back up. I tried to re-activate again and it came booming in! So - what I have determined is that after exchange permissions have been set for BESADMIN, the exchange server requires a reboot.

Glad you were able to figure it out. (y)
