I’ve been working with the BizTalk 2013 beta for months now and recently decided to get BAM Alerts going for a particular project I’m working on. We received the below error but only on some environments. Turns out we had to enable internet access on the BizTalk Server to get over this. Once that was done the configuration of BAM Alerts finally succeeded. Also note, to configure BAM Alerts we had to drop both the BAM Portal and the BAM Tools completely. Then reconfigure BAM from scratch.
