Applies to: System Center Configuration Manager (Current Branch)

For user enrollment to be successful, the device must have a trusted root certificate installed on it, and the user must be provisioned for enrollment by Configuration Manager. To enroll device, the user simply provides work credentials, and the device is enrolled to be managed.
