Which document to refer while supporting Windows phone 8.1 MDM RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Guys ,

    I am confused what document should be referred while supporting  Windows phone 8.1. 

    I have been going through following documents

    MS-MDM - Link

    Windows phone 8.1 MDM protocol  - Link

    Upon reviewing these two document some MOF are applicable for Desktop OS only from MS-MDM such as VPN configuration and for VPN configuration there is VPN configuration provider documented in Windows phone 8.1 MDM protocol document. 

    Also I noticed few references to MOF MDM_Application which manages inventory of application (from MS-MDM) conflicts with /Vendor/MSFT/EnterpriseAppManagement from Windows phone 8.1 MDM protocol.

    another e.g.

    to lock ./cimv2/MDM_Client.LockWorkstation() is given in MS-MDM with exec syncml commnad

    and ./vender/MSFT/RemoteLock/Lock is given in 8.1 protocol document

    Similarly there are other providers added (CSP) such as email configuration , remote wipe configuration , storage configuration etc for which there are few MOF present in MS-MDM doc. So what should be followed while supporting windows phone 8.1

    So which document should I refer for managing windows phone 8.1 devices. Also can anyone let me know is there any difference regarding MDM for windows phone and windows tablet ? if yes please specify MDM document for windows tablet.

  • For Windows Phone 8.1 use the document: "Windows Phone 8.1 MDM protocol.pdf" 

    For Windows 8.1 (PCs and tablets) use MS-MDM protocol spec.

  • MOFs are for Windows ( MS-MDM protocol ) they do not apply to Windows Phone 8.

    The old Windows Phone 8 MDM protocol document is here: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=36831

    Yes, the enrollment process for Phone is different from the enrollment process for Windows tablets.  Windows enrollment process is documented in the 'MS-MDE' protocol spec.

  • Thanks Eric for quick reply !

    Does this mean that MOFs from MS-MDM are not supported for windows phone 8.1?
    e.g. MOF MDM_BrowserSettings , MDM_AppInstallJob cannot be used for windows phone 8.1 ? As per one thread here windows phone 8.1 has supported backward compatibility and correct me if I am wrong these MOFs are used for windows phone 8. The reason for this question is that there are some other device configurations that I would like to support in MDM which are not there in windows phone 8.1 protocol document but there are corresponding MOFs in MS-MDM such as MDM_Webapplication , MDM_RemoteApplication etc

    As there is a difference between MDM document for phone and tablet is there any difference in the enrollment process ?
