Over the last several weeks we’ve only been working with Mac OS devices, we haven’t yet enrolled or pushed configurations out to an iOS devices, until today.
Setting up your iOS device to use Profile Manager
You may recall from episode eight in this series that we needed to make sure that your soon-to-be-managed devices needed to have access to your DNS servers in order for Profile Manager to work properly. If your wireless network DNS servers already know about your Profile Manager server, you can skip the following steps. But, if your Profile Manager server is the only server in your network that knows about your Profile Manager server, you’ll need to make some changes to DNS on your iOS device before you can enroll it in Profile Manager.
Change DNS on your iOS device
To change DNS on your iOS device:
Open the Settings app.
Tap the Wi-Fi setting.
Verify that the Wi-Fi network you’re connected to is on the same network as your Profile Manager server.
Tap the Info button that appears next to your connected Wi-Fi network.
Tap in the DNS field and change your DNS server to the server the has a DNS record for your Profile Manager server.
Enroll your iOS device in Profile Manager
Now that DNS is correct, you can enroll your iOS device in Profile Manager.
On your iOS device, open Safari and navigate to the My Devices portal for your Profile Manager server: yourserver.yourdomain.com/mydevices
