Version 2


    End user purchased an authority certified certificate, loaded to Avalanche, tested with https://<ServerAvalanche>/MDM to verify certificate was successfully loaded.

    3. click Next on next pages and once you click on finish you will receive a message " Import successfull"

    4. open Microsoft Mangement Console by typing "mmc" in cmd


    5. Add certificates snap-ins from available snap-ins and click on OK


    6. Identify the .p12 file you imported under Personal folder and open it


    7. Navigate to Certification path and check who issued the certificate, note the name i.e., in the example below the it is issued by "Ivanti-Poland-CA"


    8. Try to find the certificate with the exact name which you noted down in step 7. Right click on the certificate and export it with "server" as name of the certificate file


    9. copy this file to Avalanche installation folder i.e., usally located in C:\Program Files\Wavelink\Avalanche\SmartDeviceServer\webapp\wam

    10. Upload the .p12 file to your Avalanche server and enroll the device.
