    by apcsb on October 5, 2021 at 11:50 am

    Today I needed to move my custom domain name from an old (and messy) AAD test tenant to a (sparkling) new one. Problem is, you can’t simply delete the old custom name, since your user’s UPNs and Email addresses are using it (AAD actually presents a nice screen, showing all the dependencies, but I am...

  • 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.

    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.

  • iOS personal accounts within apps getting removed with enterprise wipe
    by /u/BMMXVIIC on December 7, 2021 at 10:56 am

    Hi all. I am writing in regards to having Workspace ONE set up on iOS devices. When we push apps like teams and outlook to iOS devices and the users already have these apps installed for personal use, the user either selects to get the app managed or cancel. Now the issue is here.. If a user has Outlook and teams installed prior to MDM and agree to getting their apps mdm managed, when an enterprise wipe executed, the apps which are managed will get wiped including the personal accounts of the users on teams and outlook. Is there a way to enterprise wipe but keep the apps which were installed prior to MDM and just remove the work accounts? submitted by /u/BMMXVIIC [link] [comments]

  • afw#hub not working on two Samsung s21 devices.
    by /u/snewton_8 on December 3, 2021 at 1:07 am

    New customer post POC with WS1 UEM. We did a pilot of about 100 users and I've enrolled my Samsung s10 and s21 test devices well over 100 times and I've never had this issue. We also have over 100 s21 devices (Android 11 and 12) enrolled without this issue so it's not a model/OS problem. After the employee factory resets their device and goes through the setup process, they get the standard screens and prompts until they enter the afw#hub identifier. If they set up wifi, they go to an Android Enterprise login screen. It never gives them the screens to install Intelligent Hub. If they use device data instead of wifi, they get prompted to connect to wifi but it won't accept any wifi connections. They've tried home and corporate wifi to no avail. In either case, they are unable to move forward from this point. We have performed multiple factory resets and that doesn't resolve this issue. We are sending one of them a temporary S10 to use while they send us their S21 to see if we can figure this issue out. I honestly don't know where to begin and as I worked with both of them walking through screen by screen, I don't hold out hope I will have any different result than they had. On one device we did another factory reset and set it up with their gmail account instead of an identifier and enrolled them into our old UEM without any issues. This appears to be tied to the identifier process. If it was just 1 device, I would chalk it up to replacing the device and be done with it. But with this happening on 2, I'm concerned about what our failure numbers will be after we enroll our other 3,000+ devices. Suggestions? [Edit] 1) We are 100% Work Managed, COPE isn't an option for the employees. 2) We tried the process of tapping the welcome screen 6 times on a test device and that isn't an option due to the presence of carrier bloatware. submitted by /u/snewton_8 [link] [comments]

  • Block macOS Monterey but allow Big Sur updates
    by /u/Skyboard13 on December 1, 2021 at 4:48 pm

    Running into an odd issue. Since Apple is decommissioned the old way to block major OS updates using the softwareupdate --ignore flag, the only thing I've found that fully blocks Monterey updates is the below custom script: <dict> <key>PayloadType</key> <string>com.apple.applicationaccess</string> <key>PayloadDisplayName</key> <string>Software Updates Deferral Policy</string> <key>PayloadVersion</key> <integer>1</integer> <key>forceDelayedMajorSoftwareUpdates</key> <true /> <key>enforcedSoftwareUpdateMajorOSDeferredInstallDelay</key> <integer>90</integer> <key>forceDelayedSoftwareUpdates</key> <true /> <key>enforcedSoftwareUpdateMinorOSDeferredInstallDelay</key> <integer>0</integer> <key>PayloadUUID</key> <string>e01b3526-38b4-11ec-8d3d-0242ac130003</string> </dict> This is SUPPOSED to block major OS updates for 90 days but allow minor updates to install immediately. But that's not happening. Both major and minor updates are getting blocked. What I'm trying to find out is there a way to fully block Monterey, keep it from showing up in System Preferences -> Software update & allow Big Sur updates. The other thing I'm trying to determine is if macOS 11.6.1 is considered a major or minor update. If it's categorized as a major update, then that would explain why folks aren't getting it installed. Does anyone have any insight into this? Or any advice/options? Our MDM is Workspace One. (One thing I'm testing is changing the Minor update flag to '1' day instead of '0' since that zero might be fully denying the minor updates) submitted by /u/Skyboard13 [link] [comments]

  • Renaming device loses all apps from app catalog (iOS)
    by /u/alivesince1985 on November 18, 2021 at 12:08 am

    Hi all, We've run into an issue with a new instance of our WO whereby when a newly-enrolled device is renamed in the instance only, the device is unable to see apps in the App Catalog/Intelligent Hub. Changing the name back to the original name doesn't fix this issue. The name is also not sent to the device (ie the 'device name' does not get modified). Would any of you know where I should be looking in WO to try to resolve this? All help greatly appreciated in advance. submitted by /u/alivesince1985 [link] [comments]

  • Chrome and Firefox Updates on MacOS`
    by /u/Skyboard13 on November 17, 2021 at 8:01 pm

    Running into an odd issue with both Chrome and Firefox updates on macOS. Firefox: Most users get updated automatically when we deploy the new version, but for some reason around 10 folks (all around the world) NEVER get updated. I've confirmed with the users that they don't use Firefox at all so why would the update install be failing? As usual, the troubleshooting section of these devices doesn't show any useful info. Am I not looking in the correct spot? Also would it be better to have a preinstall script the blows away Firefox instead of pushing the new version (and retiring the old)? Or is there a way to turn on auto updates of Firefox so that non-admins get updated automagically? Chrome: Same issue as Firefox but with a different wrinkle. We're using WS1 to push Enterprise Management of Chrome. That works perfectly, but users don't restart chrome even though it nags them over and over again. Is there a better way to push chrome updates? We're doing the same thing of upload the new version and retire the old. Thanks for any advice. submitted by /u/Skyboard13 [link] [comments]
