  • iOS 14.2 Xamarin bug – using Workspace ONE Intelligence Automations to improve user experience
    by apcsb on December 23, 2020 at 7:30 am

    There is currently an issue (confirmed by Microsoft) with Xamarin-based apps built for iOS 14.2 – they crash when deployed via MDM (but do not crash if installed manually from store) and only on the newer devices (iPhone XR etc). In this post I will show a solution that we came up with together with... Continue Reading →

    We know about the changes to Android 11 COPE, and how they affect the EMMs. One aspect that was slightly overlooked though, is what happens to Internal apps, which many organizations are still employing. We have recently released a KB, which caused a bit of panic between customers and colleagues. Let’s dive deeper and see... Continue Reading →

  • Enroll Android Enterprise devices in closed networks with Workspace ONE
    by apcsb on August 24, 2020 at 7:30 am

    As more customers migrate from the legacy Device Admin to Android Enterprise, I get more often questions about networks that have no Internet access (mostly rugged devices in retail, logistics, manufacturing, or high security cases such as police or healthcare IoT). So I think I’ll leave a quick guide/FAQ here. How does closed network enrollment... Continue Reading →

  • Google announce big changes to zero-touch
    by Jason Bayton on November 10, 2020 at 3:09 pm

    Google today dropped the most significant update to zero-touch since its introduction with the Google Pixel back in 2016! Rolling out over the next several months, all GMS certified Android devices – new and existing – running 9.0 or above will support zero-touch by default, with no additional OEM effort required. Why does this matter? Zero-touch, Google’s equivalent of Apple’s Device Enrolment, Samsung’s Knox Mobile Enrolment, and Microsoft’s Autopilot, allows for the assignment of a device to a customer-defined EMM platform before it’s even taken out of the box. It means I as a customer can purchase devices from a ... read more.

  • VMware announces end of support for Device Admin
    by Jason Bayton on October 1, 2020 at 3:23 pm

    This week, VMware announced their intention to end support for Device Admin based Android management. A topic I’ve covered in depth since Google’s announcement way back at the end of 2017, this has been a long time coming (so long), and trends with the wider ecosystem adoption of Android Enterprise over the last few years as Device Admin functionality has slowly but surely eroded away with each major Android release. 3 years on from that announcement it’s clear however DA isn’t going away as rapidly as some would hope; whether that’s due to slow device refresh cycles (some industries take ... read more.

    Today Google announced the public availability of the Android Enterprise Help Community, a community resource tied to the Android Enterprise Help Center. Driven primarily by community experts (Google Product Experts), the Help Community offers the wider ecosystem of partners and customers a place to discuss all things Android Enterprise, whether EMM issues, device questions, zero-touch queries, deployment or in-life support concerns, best practices, tips or really anything else. As long as it’s AE, it’s fair game. The community has been up and running for a little bit, and a few customers have stumbled upon it no doubt while perusing the ... read more.

I'm trying to help the technical team figure out a way to accomplish this, but have not been able to find any documentation on this. Is there a way to set a custom home screen icon for apps that we set to download from the app store? Thank you in advance! submitted by /u/PartyBoardGame_R [link] [comments]

  • I may not be understanding this, but the Windows 10 Passcode Compliance Policy is always marked non-compliant.
    by /u/NinjaGeoff on January 15, 2021 at 11:35 pm

    Hi all, we're going to be starting a BYOD/CYOD program at my work but the devices need to meet certain requirements. We're hoping to only monitor these by compliance policies. We're starting with Windows 10 as that's the easiest to test on as we can have a fresh VM up in a very short period of time. The issue/thing I'm probably misunderstanding is the Passcode Compliance Policy. I have it set so if the Passcode Is Not Present to send notifications to the user and myself, but even when there's both a complex password set (15 characters, upper/lowercase, numbers, and a symbol) as well as a PIN, it's always marked as non-compliant. I did start off just using a profile assigned to the smart group, but when I removed the device either by uninstalling the Intelligence Hub or by deleting the device, I could never get rid of the password requirements, even checking/changing local security policies. This will be for employee owned devices, so we want to be able to leave zero trace once the software is removed. Thanks! submitted by /u/NinjaGeoff [link] [comments]

  • Upgrade Home to Pro

  • Brand new on-prem deployment of WS1 uem, what is the default login?
    by /u/zombiepreparedness on January 14, 2021 at 4:25 pm

    So, in any of the vmware documentation of deploying WS1 uem on-prem, it is never stated what is the default login after the platform is successfully deployed on-prem. Here is the pdf for 2008: https://docs.vmware.com/en/VMware-Workspace-ONE-UEM/2008/WS1_Installation.pdf Along with the online KB: https://docs.vmware.com/en/VMware-Workspace-ONE-UEM/2008/UEM_Installation/GUID-AWT-INSTALL-INTRO.html Nowhere does it state how to log into it after it is deployed. Any combo of admin/admin, admin/password, admin/root, root/root, etc... doesn't work. I found an old post on vmware forums of administrator/airwatch but that doesn't work either. Thoughts? submitted by /u/zombiepreparedness [link] [comments]

  • Migration from Intune
    by /u/CycleKing on January 8, 2021 at 3:09 am

    We are doing a WS1 deployment and the main hurdle seems to be migration from Intune. Retiring from Intune causes the removal of workplace data and apps which could be problematic. Normally we could fall back on GPOs, but with everyone being remote it's hard to see that as a feasible option. Does anyone else have any deployment strategies they've used when there's an MDM already in place? Glad to see there's so may more members on here from a year ago! submitted by /u/CycleKing [link] [comments]

  • A couple Workspace ONE UEM questions...
    by /u/CISbrokeMyMouse on January 7, 2021 at 6:00 am

    Hi Internet, I'm pretty new to Workspace ONE but have inherited a few projects related to the platform, mainly around provisioning and managing macOS endpoints. In trying to setup a macOS (Catalina, if that matters) Parallels VM, I noticed that Workspace ONE seems to think it's an iOS device. Is this a know issue, or have any of you successfully setup macOS parallels VMs? Is there anyway to force it to be seen as a macOS device? submitted by /u/CISbrokeMyMouse [link] [comments]

  • Any way to prevent randomized MAC addresses on Android devices

  • MAC Product Provisioning: .ini becomes unknown file
    by /u/NeverAlone7 on December 31, 2020 at 5:58 am

    Hi Guys and Gals, ​ Anyone else facing the issue of deploying an .ini file via product provisioning to MAC and it becomes an unknown file when received by MAC? ​ We confirmed from airwatch relay server it still comes in as an .ini file. ​ UEM Server Version: 20.8.0.14 (2008) Build Information: BTA-ACRPAT36-12 ​ MAC OS: Catalina Version: 10.15.7 ​ Note: This was completely working fine. I think last test before Catalina 10.15.7 it was still working fine at 10.15.4, not sure anymore just came back from grievance leave. This .ini file is a dependency file for installing Carbon Black. (We can't use internal app method for it as per my understanding as it is not a standalone installer.) submitted by /u/NeverAlone7 [link] [comments]

  • Any way to record an Android device doing fully mananged AE enrollment from start to finish?
    by /u/zombiepreparedness on December 30, 2020 at 9:54 pm

    I need to do a video demo of a AE fully managed enrollment from start to finish. I've seen some promotional videos on youtube so I am sure there is there a way to connect an android device to a computer and capture the video output and record it. Every time I have done this in the past, you couldn't do this until it got to the homescreen, because you had to enable developer mode and usb debug, which means you can't do a video of a fully managed device. I have an hdmi video capture card, just not sure what else I need. submitted by /u/zombiepreparedness [link] [comments]

  • Anyone have a current document for deploying vmware client apps for windows 10?

I'm thinking the guide is outdated and is using command line switches that aren't valid anymore.

  • SEG Question
    by /u/Wasteway on December 19, 2020 at 10:56 pm

    Wanted to post this in /r/AirWatchMDM but waiting for approval. We have an on-prem Exch 2019 deployment with AW hosted and SEG v2.16. Want to upgrade to 2.17 soon but need to get the SEG Custom Gateway Settings figured out. We have iOS, Android, Win10 Ent, and a few MacOS clients. The Macs are an issue because they still use EWS to communicate. We want to put our Exch server fully behind our firewall, with OWA access restricted to SSLVPN Webterminal access only. So... If you are managing MacOS, have you been able to get it to communicate through the SEG or perhaps persistent IPSec VPN so you can close off access to your Exch host(s)? We are using hosted ENS so we don't have that running on-prem, but one thing I noticed when looking at our config today in the SaaS Console under Email Settings/Configuration/Advanced/Optional Transactions, "Sync" and "Ping" are disabled. I can't find an explanation as to why you would or wouldn't want those turned on or off. Does anyone have any idea if we should enable those. Things appear to be working but always wondering if there is a problem or delay that we could resolve without realizing it is occurring? We do log and 80% of my events are Sync and Ping so we do appear to be generating those type of events. Can imagine system wouldn't work without out them so I'm at a loss as to why the console shows as "Disabled". Thanks for any thoughts/info you might have. submitted by /u/Wasteway [link] [comments]
