Deploying MDM Self Service Portal


This section helps the IT Pro install and configure MDM Self Service Portal. MDM Self Service Portal is a Web-based interface that lets users manage their Windows Mobile devices. On this portal, based on settings you configure, users can enroll their Windows Mobile devices, monitor enrollment status, retrieve a recovery password to reset their device password, and wipe managed devices that they no longer want or that are no longer in their possession.

To install MDM Self Service Portal, run MDM Setup to run the wizard that installs the portal. Setup checks for prerequisites and installs the necessary MDM services and Web site files. Then, you can use the Portal Administration page to configure the portal settings.

By using Setup, you can repair or uninstall a previously installed version. Alternatively, you can use Add or Remove Programs in Control Panel to uninstall the portal.
