I'm assuming this BB used to be a BIS account & now you're trying to make it a BES?  If so the ISP has not "refreshed" the user's account to acknowledge the change. So RIM still sees this as a BIS account not BES. When the ISP finally refreshes it, you should be able to activate their device right away.

I've run into this a couple of times.

I understand that's what you're trying to make it.  But was it ever a BIS account?

Then in that case I think you have to connect it to a desktop with the cable & activate it through Desktop Manager.  Those are the only two workarounds I'm familiar with regarding this issue.

It sounds like the handset has an old IT policy applied to it and the new IT policy cannot be written which is preventing it from activating. Two things to test:

First, check with the mobile carrier that a suitable BlackBerry data plan is applied to that number and ask them to refresh it for you.

Second, connect the handset to a PC with BlackBerry Desktop Manager installed. From a command prompt, navigate to the directory: C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader and run the following command:

loader.exe /resettofactory

This wipes the handheld and removes all IT Policies which aren't normally touched by a standard wipe. If the problem persists, we will need some more background information.

This looks like either permissions on the mailbox or the provisioning on the account.

Check that BlackBerry admin account and user has full access.

I would also contact the mobile/cell provider to double check BlackBerry provisioning, sometimes they dual provision so you can have BIS & BES on the account. I've been on the phone with these geezers for many hours in the past, demand to speak with someone technical and you should get it sorted.

If the BlackBerry server is unable to get the NTSecurityDescriptor from the target account, you have a problem with permissions in Active Directory. Make sure that the BlackBerry Administrator account permissions are propagating correctly to that user. If there is a break in the propagation or the user is a member of one of the restricted Admin groups then BES will encounter problems. If there is definitely no problem with the permissions propagating to the user then there is a problem within Active Directory and you will need to delete the entire account for that user from Active Directory and recreate it from scratch.

Hi Yogesh,

Did you recreate the entire Active Directory account including mailbox? Or just the entry in the BB Manager? A security descriptor error points to a permissions issue. If the permissions all appear to be correct then it is likely to be a corruption in Active Directory associated to that account. This would also explain why the problem follows the user between handset and ISPs.

Is the user account a member of Domain/Enterprise/Schema Admins or any of the other restricted accounts?

no i have recreated only BB account i am also thinking this could be a issue.

No. user is not a member of Domain/Enterprise/Schema Admins or any of the other restricted accounts?

if we add him to Domain/Enterprise/Schema Admins will it solve a problem or not?

Hi Yogesh,

Adding the user to the restricted admin accounts will not solve the problem, it will only create more problems. Can you check that permissions have correctly propagated down to the user? If the user is in a container with Active Directory, check to make sure the container inherits permissions from its parent. If there are any breaks in the inheritance, there will be problems.
