Problem: Configuration of an MDM profile on an iOS or Android device fails. The procedure is cancelled.

Possible causes:

3. The device does not meet the minimum requirements for Mobile Device Management.

4. An Apple Push certificate (APNs) for using iOS devices is missing or expired.

5. An account for Android enterprise created incorrectly in the management console.
