Always-On-VPN and global proxy not working in iOS 9

klatuu's picture
No votes yet

We use Always-On VPN with IKE 2 to reach our internal networks. Our internal networks can reach outside web servers only via http/https through our company proxy. This worked perfect until iOS 8.4.1. Some users upgraded their machines to iOS 9 and they told us "The internet is not working". We tested it and couldn't see any traffic to our proxies. iPads/iPhones try to resolve DNS and reach the servers direct. But our internal DNS Servers are not connected to the internet DNS Servers.
Just tested the function with iOS 9.0.2.

Still not working ! Very serious bug for company use of iOS devices.

Devices Intermittently Dropping Wifi

Hey All,

We have been experiencing an issue on our campus where Apple devices, and Apple devices only, are disconnecting and reconnecting to our wireless network.

This has caused huge issues for our teachers who are streaming content to Apple TVs. Every 5-10 minutes the wifi drops, causing whatever they are playing to stop and terminates the connection to the Apple TV.

We've experienced this issue with iPhones, iPads and Macs, both managed and not. We also have Dell desktops, Chrome books, and surface tablets deployed in the school and none of them seem to be experiencing an issue.

My network admin isn't sure where to start trouble shooting as it is only Apple devices experiencing the issue. I do know we use all Cisco Enterprise level hardware for the routers.

Any direction would be much appreciated!

Thanks,
Nick

GroundControl is hiring 1-2 mobility engineers

The next phase of GroundControl is beginning. I'm looking for 1-2 mobility engineers to work with me, helping large enterprises implement our software and save them from a world of pain. Must have MDM experience with Apple iOS devices. Best if you live in the New York area, too, but would consider remote workers. We are a small team today so you'd have a lot of impact!

E-mail me at aaron / at / groundctl / dot / com if interested.

No-Apple ID, App Distribution by Device: Which MDMs have this already?

Your rating: None (4 votes)

One of the most anticipated features of iOS is the ability to distribute VPP apps to devices without Apple IDs, as long as certain conditions are met: device is on iOS 9, app was purchased through VPP, app developer opted in, MDM supports this feature.

What is unclear at this time is WHICH MDM providers support this feature today. As far as I can tell, very few were ready on day 1. Was yours?

Does your MDM support per-Device app distribution? Please post your MDM vendor and your experiences here. Maybe we can get them to prioritize this feature.

I upgraded to Server 5.0.3 yesterday. I previously was unable to sync new VPP purchased apps(Last couple weeks) and apple support said I had to updated before VPP would work again. So I upgraded. I am able to login and the apps are there. But randomly I get grey screen or "A server error has occurred." while working. Usually I get one of those errors instead of the page or button I click. I have monitored the log files after hitting load until I get the error: The server starts running version slow at this time. It is a i7 with 16gb of ram. Any suggestions? Any help appreciated.

Warning pop ups in iOS9

Hello!

In iOS9, when you run in-house apps, a warning pops up that the developer is not reliable, and you need to go to Settings - General - Profile and mark the profile as "trusted" to run the app. Is this the only way to run the app? How to prevent this warning from showing up?

About the security content of iOS 9

Your rating: None (1 vote)

Apple has published their regular inventory of security updates in iOS 9. By my count it is a new record of patches: 107 vulnerabilities.

Apple's been getting better and better at documenting and fixing security vulnerabilities. So please do your part and update your devices!

Custom APN settings incompatible with iOS 9

Your rating: None (3 votes)

Hi All,

"You can define a custom Access Point Name (APN) for cellular data access using either of two different configuration profile payloads – APN or Cellular. In iOS 9 you currently must use a Cellular payload for your APN profile. Apple plans to address this issue in a software update."

If you are affected by iOS 9 APN issue please refer to Apple's KB.

New Restrictions in iOS 9 — with sample Configuration Profiles

No votes yet

iOS 9 contains many new restrictions, especially for devices supervised by GroundControl, Configurator, and DEP.

Over at GroundControl's web site, I've posted a list of the new restrictions, plus sample configuration profiles for each. Want to lock the device name or wallpaper? Prevent the device passcode from being set or being changed? These are for you.

A few of the MDM providers will be ready on day 1, but if your on-prem solution may take some time to update, then you may use these files to bridge the gap.

Enjoy!

Hi all,

I have made an App I built with Enterprise profil.

When I deploy this app, I have the error : "The application could not be verified."

AMDeviceSecureInstallApplication (thread 0x10b23b000): Could not install package on device: kAMDApplicationVerificationFailedError

How could I verify the app?

Thanks in advance!

P.S. Sorry for my bad English, I'm just a French Smile

iOS 9 available September 16, new iPhones, bigger iPad Pro, new iPad mini 4, new Apple TV with apps...

No votes yet

Lots and lots today at the Apple announcements. This big one for this crowd is this:

iOS 9 available September 16

It's coming, and hopefully you've been up to speed on Apple's iOS 9 Checklist. (OK Seriously who has time for this?). Apple today not only released the Gold Master of iOS 9, they released the first beta of iOS 9.1. Time stops for no one.

The new Apple TV, available "Late October" comes with "tvOS" and runs Apps. Enterprise Apps are usable too, according to the updated license agreement. Does this mean MDM support for apps to Apple TVs?

Two new iPhones — 6s and 6s Plus — come 3D Touch (new gestures), Touch ID 2 (faster), better camera (12M pixels & 4K video), LTE Advanced and quicker WiFi. And pink.

A new 12.9" iPad Pro, with optional accessories Apple Pencil, and Smart Keyboard for those of you with Surface envy. No, that can't be the case, because Apple put Microsoft on stage to demo Office for iPad just after its introduction. (Which looks very cool using Excel and Word side-by-side.)

In case five iPad models makes your eyes cross, Apple has published an iPad comparison that may help. From what I can tell, there are 23 different combinations of capacity, size, and networking. And I'm skipping color options.

What did I miss?

Meraki MDM and OSX Apps - Help!

SDCCS_Tech's picture
No votes yet

I manage our districts iPads using the Meraki MDM and now I want to be able to push Mac Apps to new teacher Macbooks. My issue is I cannot seem to get the App assigned to the Macbooks.

Here's what I've done.
1. Added devices to our Apple Device Enrollment account and assigned them to our MDM server.
2. I purchased the Mac App in VPP.
3. Synced the app in the Meraki MDM
4. Granted license to users
5. Added app to Meraki App management with custom tag identifying the app
6. Added the custom tag as the scope for installation.
Here is where it gets fun, once the tag is added, the clients in scope remain 0.
Confirmed on the Mac that app is assigned to the Apple Id, as it allows me to install it manually, but I want to be able to deploy it like we do for iPad apps.

This is the 1st time I have tried to deploy an OSX app, Up to this point we were only doing iPad apps. I have scoured the Meraki site and Google for more info, and no luck. So I am hoping someone has done this or can confirm that what I want to do is not possible.

Here is the app I am trying to push to the Macbooks.AntiVirus Sentinel Pro

Observations:
I noticed that in Meraki, the Platform is Identified as IOS but when going to the Itunes App page it is an OSX app, When I can the scope and select an iPad it accepts the tag and updated the scope correctly. Did I import the app into Meraki incorrectly? On the Macbook it shows up as a Mac app.

Any help would be appreciated, I can do a manual install on the 30+ Macs if I need to, but hoping it's a simple mistake or missed step on my part.
