Reenroll non-DEP-Devices after wipe

Hi everybody,

Is there a way to automatically re-enroll devices after a wipe command that are not managed by DEP (so no preStage enrollment)? We have some older devices that are not managed by Apple Business Manager (unfortunately) and are enrolled through user invitation.

Best regards,
Floh

Nope. the automatic part of Automated Device Enrollment requires Apple Business Manager.

 

On the upside, it is possible to add a device to ABM all be it through a very manual process.

@floh Without the device being DEP enabled in ABM or ASM there's no mechanism to have a device automatically enroll with Jamf Pro. If you're talking about Macs though, and have physical access to them, you might be able to use MDS from Twocanoes to automate the enrollment: https://twocanoes.com/products/mac/mds/

To add an x86 Mac to ABM requires it be a 2018 or later model with the T2 Security Chip.

As @AJPinto and @sdagley have mentioned, if the Macs are not too old, and you have physical access to them, you can use Apple Configurator on a mobile device to wipe and enroll these Macs into ABM. From that point on, they will auto enroll on any future wipes, assuming you add them to a Prestage Configuration in Jamf Pro of course.

If these are all remote systems and you're just sending a remote wipe to them, then, no, unfortunately there is no way to have them enroll back into Jamf. As far as the Mac is concerned, it's a normal non company owned machine and whoever has it in hand will be able to set up the Mac like it was bought from a store.

If you have a kind supplier, who actually supplied you with the device, then they can add the device to your ABM/ASM. So long as it meets the criteria for being added.
You should be able to go back to them and prove you ordered them from them. Then they can look up the Apple internal order number that the devices were supplied on, and then add them to your ABM/ASM.
Obviously if they are too old to meet the criteria for being added then this will not work.

Thank you for your hint. I already asked the supplier, unfortunately the sold devices are too "old" so they cannot add.. But it's fine for me to add the devices by using Apple Configurator since I did it for two machines.
