Use the following procedure to configure configuration items in System Center 2012 Configuration Manager to manage the settings on mobile devices that you enroll by using Configuration Manager or Windows Intune.
The most typical mobile device settings to configure are email management, password, and roaming settings. However, there are many more settings that you can configure and define by using these three levels:
- The default settings group, from where you
select typical settings to configure and select values in drop-down
- Additional settings when the setting that you
want to configure is not included in the default settings groups.
To configure additional settings, select the Configure
additional settings that are not in the default setting groups
check box on the Mobile Device Settings page.
- Custom settings that you define yourself by
using the OMA URI values. These settings are an equivalent to
registry settings for computers. Consult your vendor documentation
to help you define these settings and values. To create the custom
settings, click Create Setting in the Browse Settings
|Not all settings might be supported on all mobile operating systems and on all versions. Configuration Manager displays known compatibility issues for the settings that you configure in the default groups and the additional settings. However, consult your vendor documentation and test the settings and values before you deploy the settings in a production environment.|
All mobile device settings can be remediated if they are out of compliance.
|Do not configure configuration items for different values and assign them to the same devices. When devices evaluate configuration items that have conflicting values, the order in which they are evaluated is nondeterministic.|
