Unable to activate a single user in BES

Jason Tramer Jason Tramer Profile: Jason Tramer

I just experienced this issue, I had a user that i could not activate. It kept coming up with the a generic “An error occured, please contact your system administrator” error. I ensured that all the proper security persmissions for the BES admin account were set. I was able to activate other users fine using the same blackberry. No errors in the event log. Rebooting the BES and Exchange server didn’t help.

Here is what I did to resolve this:

1) Remove the exchange attributes from the account and then delete the account

2) Create a new account without an exchange mailbox

3) In Exchange system manager run the mailbox cleanup agent which marks the old mailbox as orphaned

4) Re-connect the exchange mailbox to the new account

Voila, activated like a charm
