Little bit of a bug with System Center Configuration Manager current branch (1511) when you are using Microsoft Intune in a hybrid configuration and also are using native Mac management (HTTPS/PKI).
If you are managing Mac’s through MDM (supported with 1511 and Intune hybrid) then this would not apply to you.
If you have a Terms & Conditions policy created, then your Mac devices will not finish enrolling properly. Unfortunately, the T&C doesn’t even need to be deployed, the policy just needs to exist. You will be able to install the Mac client and complete the enrollment process, however the Mac devices will never show up in the ConfigMgr console. It appears to an issue in processing the mobile policies (as Mac devices are treated as mobile devices).
By deleting the Terms and Conditions, your Mac devices will finish enrolling and will show up in the console shortly there-after.
2016 Is off to a great start, received my Microsoft MVP award for the 6th time. Absolute pleasure/honor to among such a great group of talented people.
Congratulations! We are pleased to present you with the 2016 Microsoft® MVP Award! This award is given to exceptional technical community leaders who actively share their high quality, real world expertise with others. We appreciate your outstanding contributions in Enterprise Mobility technical communities during the past year.
It’s a little difficult to find the download link for the additional clients for ConfigMgr. There are new versions that you will need for 1511 versus ConfigMgr R2.
The next video in my Tech Talks series is now live. This time we are covering Conditional Access with Microsoft Intune.
Had an interesting issue with a client on a fresh install today. SQL Server Management Studio would crash as soon as you tried to open a new query window or open a saved query. Also if you tried to view the local server in Server Manager it was crash as well.
After some searching, I came across the following KB which fixed both my issues. This occurred on 2 separate servers that were fresh installs.
The issue apparently has to do with the winspool.drv
Today I’m happy to present a video in a new series I’m doing where we’ll be taking topics and presenting them in a video format. The goal is to provide an overview or breakdown of the topic in a 5 minute or less video.
Today’s video is Azure Rights Management, I’m going to quickly show you what the experience looks like on the PC and on the iPad and how easy the solution is to use.
Highly recommended reading.
Earlier today Apple released the final version of iOS 9 to developers worldwide (with public release set for Sept 16, and a new iOS 9.1 beta drop available). Over the past few months, we have been busy working to ensure that Intune is fully compatible with this latest version of Apple’s mobile operating system, and we are happy to announce that Microsoft Intune has Day 0 support for managing iOS 9 devices. All the existing Intune features currently available for managing iOS devices will continue to work seamlessly as users upgrade their devices to iOS 9. As a member of the Intune Product Engineering team that works closely with Apple on support for its platforms, I want to share insights into some of the new iOS 9 features for IT and the Enterprise and how they are supported in Microsoft Intune. As we continuously update the Intune service, you will begin to see these new features and many more.
Nice update to the o365 portal to make management easier.
We have received feedback from you asking for fewer portals to manage your Microsoft subscriptions. Based upon this feedback, we are merging the Microsoft Intune account portal with the Office 365 management portal to simplify your user experience.
As an initial change, the Office 365 management portal now supports subscription management and license assignment for Intune and Enterprise Mobility Suite (EMS). Until late September, you can continue to use the Intune account portal while you update your workflows and bookmarks. Following this transition period, the Office 365 management portal will be where you will manage subscriptions and license assignments. We anticipate retiring the Intune portal on or after September 28, 2015 and an in-service banner will be added to remind you of this change.
For EMS customers who previously visited the Azure portal for user creation and license assignment, you can continue to use the Azure portal to take advantage of advanced features such as group license assignment. Alternatively, you can begin assigning licenses while already managing other subscriptions in the Office 365 management portal. There are no changes to the Azure portal or the Intune admin console as part of this migration.
