How to enroll an iOS device when using a self signed cert

Version 3

    Summary: Starting with Avalanche 6 you now have the ability to manage smart devices(iOS, Android) with a smart device server.  The smart device server requires an SSL certificate to function.  The details of this can be found in the help section here .  When you are using a self signed cert you first must install the cert onto the device prior to enrolling.  The steps below walk you through how to install the certificate and then enroll the device.  These steps begin after you have installed the SSL certificate into Avalanche and have completed a universal deployment.

     

    First on the mobile device browser open https:\\hostname_of_your_sds\mdm this will open the page below.  On that page select the Trust this Server button.
