Occasionally, communication between Addigy and Apple’s Automated Device Enrollment service (part of Apple Business/School Manager) can be interrupted. This article will explain the main causes for this and how to remediate broken communication.
Updates to Apple Software License Agreement
Major operating system releases to macOS, iOS, or tvOS can trigger updates to Apple’s Software License Agreement. This usually occurs with major point revisions and will require the administrator to login to Apple Business/School Manager and accept the new Terms of Service. Once accepted, communication between Addigy and Automated Device Enrollment can resume.
To expedite the process, the Retry button underneath the Upload Server Token area will try to establish communication again.
To expedite the process of Addigy recognizing that the new Terms and Conditions have been accepted navigate to Policy, and open the Policy --> Integrations --> Automated Device Enrollment where you have loaded your Automated Device Enrollment Token. You should see a message similar to the following. Then press "Retry".
When the error has cleared, scroll down to Automated Enrollment Devices and press the "Scan Now" button.
