SCCM 2012 R2 and Android Device

With SCCM 2012 there is the ability to use Windows Intune Company Portal in the Google Play store that allows us to enroll Android devices into Configuration Manager 2012 R2.

As we all know the Windows Intune connector broaden our reach of more and more devices to manage. Since the management is really depended of the operating system of the (mobile) device the management options can be different per operating system.

    • WiFi profiles

    • Password settings
    • Device restrictions

      • WiFi profiles are removed
      • Deployed certificates are revoked on the server
      • Settings policies are removed
