During the enrollment process, you must enable Mobile Device Manager (MDM) Enrollment Server to create or delete computer accounts in an Active Directory® organizational unit (OU) that is dedicated for Windows Mobile devices. During Active Directory configuration, a default MDM organizational unit, SCMDM2008 Managed Devices, is created and delegated to MDM Enrollment Server. It is recommended that you do not rename or move the SCMDM2008 Managed Devices OU. The following steps are optional for administrators who want to create additional OUs for managed Windows Mobile devices.

To create or delete Windows Mobile device accounts, you will create an OU for Windows Mobile devices and then grant MDM Enrollment Server the permissions that are required.

Important:
Use the following steps to create and delete computer accounts from your newly created OU forWindows Mobile devices only after you configure Active Directory for MDM. For more information about how to configure Active Directory, see Step 1: Configuring Active Directory for MDM. You must use the MDM Shell cmdlet, Set-EnrollmentPermissions, to delegate permission for MDM Enrollment Server to create and delete computer accounts in a specific OU. For more information about this cmdlet, see Set-EnrollmentPermissionsin MDM Operations.
