Use one of the following methods to set up enrollment for Windows devices:
- This method is applicable only for Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile devices.
- You must have Azure Active Directory Premium to use this method. Otherwise, use the enrollment method for Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1.
- If you choose not to enable automatic enrollment, use the enrollment method for Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1.
- You must use this method to enroll Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1 devices.
- You can use this method for Windows 8.1 and later devices if you don't want to use Azure Active Directory (AD) Premium.
Set up Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile automatic enrollment with Azure Active Directory Premium
Automatic enrollment lets users enroll either company-owned or personal Windows 10 PCs and Windows 10 Mobile devices in Intune by adding a work or school account and agreeing to be managed. Simple as that. In the background, the user's device registers and joins Azure Active Directory. Once registered, the device is managed with Intune.
- Azure Active Directory Premium subscription (trial subscription)
- Microsoft Intune subscription
Configure automatic MDM enrollment
Choose the Applications tab. Microsoft Intune appears in the list of applications.
Select the arrow for Microsoft Intune. A page opens that enables you to configure Microsoft Intune.
Select Configure to start configuring automatic MDM enrollment with Microsoft Intune.
Use the default values for the following URLs:
- MDM Enrollment
- MDM Compliance
Specify which users’ devices should be managed by Microsoft Intune. These users’ Windows 10 devices will be automatically enrolled for management with Microsoft Intune.
Enable Windows enrollment without Azure AD Premium
You can let users install and enroll their devices without Azure AD Premium automatic enrollment. If you create DNS CNAME resource records, users connect and enroll in Intune without entering a server name.
Create CNAMEs (optional)
Create CNAME DNS resource records for your company’s domain. For example, if your company’s website is contoso.com, you would create a CNAME in DNS that redirects EnterpriseEnrollment.contoso.com to enterpriseenrollment-s.manage.microsoft.com.
Although creating CNAME DNS entries is optional, CNAME records make enrollment easier for users. If no enrollment CNAME record is found, users are prompted to manually enter the MDM server name, enrollment.manage.microsoft.com.
If there is more than one verified domain, create a CNAME record for each domain. The CNAME resource records must contain the following information:
CNAME resource records must have the following information:
TYPE Host name Points to TTL CNAME EnterpriseEnrollment.company_domain.com EnterpriseEnrollment-s.manage.microsoft.com 1 Hour CNAME EnterpriseRegistration.company_domain.com EnterpriseRegistration.windows.net 1 Hour
EnterpriseEnrollment-s.manage.microsoft.com– Supports a redirect to the Intune service with domain recognition from the email’s domain name
If your company uses multiple domains for user credentials, create CNAME records for each domain.
For example, if your company’s website is contoso.com, you would create a CNAME in DNS that redirects EnterpriseEnrollment.contoso.com to EnterpriseEnrollment-s.manage.microsoft.com. Changes to DNS records might take up to 72 hours to propagate. You cannot verify the DNS change in Intune until the DNS record propagates.
In the Azure portal, choose More Services > Monitoring + Management > Intune. On the Intune blade, choose Enroll devices > Windows Enrollment. Enter the URL of the verified domain of the company website in the Specify a verified domain name box, and then choose Test Auto-Detection.
Tell your users how to enroll their devices and what to expect after their devices are under management.

No additional work is required unless you will deploy the Company Portal to devices. Steps 2 and 3 in the admin console can be safely ignored.
