create debug token issue

I started with this document




tthat explained how to get debug tokens. So I requested my signing keys and recieved client-PBDT-xxxxxxxxx.csj, I then followed:




to create a .p12 file. Then I tried running: blackberry-debugtokenrequest -register -cskpass <your csk password> -csjpin <your CSJ PIN> <path to your CSJ registration file> and get the following error: barsigner error: already registered with PBDT. I simple followed the steps, any ideas what I am doing wrong?

Re: create debug token issue

Hello jhollick,


From the error message "already registered with PBDT" it looks like your keys have already been registered and hence you do not need to register them again. You can only register your PBDT keys once. If you wish to register them again, you will need to request for another set of keys.


To confirm that your keys have been registered, can you please navigate to "%HOMEPATH%\AppData\Local\Research In Motion" and check to see if you have the files:




If these files are present, can you open barsigner.db with a text editor and check if you have the following entry:



If you do have these entries, your PBDT keys have been registered and you can continue with the process for uploading your debug token onto your playbook.


Looking forwarding to your reply.
