MDM Profile Expiration Date

I'm curious as to what happens when a computer hits the "MDM Profile Expiration Date".

Will MDM commands stop working?
Will the profile be renewed automatically or do I have to issue a new profile using 'Action' -> 'Send Remote Commands' -> 'Renew MDM Profile'?

Thanks!

Hello. Do you have any updates on this? I noticed the MDM Cert on our server is about to expire but the Certs pushed to machines auto renews. Thanks!

You can use the Below EA to check the MDM verification state https://www.jamf.com/jamf-nation/third-party-products/files/830/mdm-profile-verification-state
You can create a smart group and send mass action "Renew MDM Profile" command

@vinu_thankachan Taht link is no longer working. I have been trying to locate how to get our systems to renew their MDM Profile date, en mass.
Thanks for any updates

Can't remember if the below script was the content of the now expired link above but this is what we use to check the verification state in an extension attribute:

I know this is a bit old, but I am wondering this same thing. I see the solution to see if the MDM Profile has expired or not. But I have a bunch of devices with an expired Profile and am trying to figure out a way to get the certificate "renewed". So far nothing seems to be working, but maybe I just have yet to try the one thing that will get them renewed.

@musat , Did you figure this out?  I have a several hundred AppleTVs with expired MDM profiles.  I really don't want to re-enroll, but it seems that might be my only option.

I have not, and so far on the MacBooks, a complete erase and reinstall is the only solution we have come up with. We could do a `jamf removeframework`, and full reenroll, but that isn't something that our school-based help desk techs can readily do.
