For guidelines on using Windows 10 virtual machines with Intune, see Using Windows 10 virtual machines.

Supported Samsung Knox Standard devices

To avoid Knox activation errors that prevent MDM enrollment, the Company Portal app only attempts Samsung Knox activation during MDM enrollment if the device appears in the list of supported Knox devices. Devices that don't support Samsung Knox activation enroll as standard Android devices. A Samsung device might have some model numbers that support Knox, while others don't. Verify Knox compatibility with your device reseller before you buy and deploy Samsung devices.


Enrolling Samsung Knox devices may require you to enable access to Samsung servers.

The following list of Samsung device models do not support Knox. They are enrolled as native Android devices by the Company Portal app for Android:
