Microsoft Intune: Troubleshooting Android Company Portal enrollment issues

In some cases users are unable to uninstall Company Portal application on their Android devices after unenrolling or while troubleshooting enrollment issues.

There are 2 ways this can be resolved:

The easiest way for end user is by having the administrator “Selectively wipe” the the device, this will in most cases resolve the problem as long as the device has established contact with Microsoft Intune.

The other scenario is when the device failed before establishing connection with Microsoft Intune, the user will  then have to manually remove Company Portal as a Device Administrator in order to uninstall the app.

Instructions:

Open Settings > Security > Device Administrator > Delete Company Portal from Device Administrators and reinstall the application.

The same instructions will resolve another problem you might encounter during enrollment: “Failed to activate Device Administrator”. This often occurs if a user had problems with the initial enrollment phase.

 

 

Customizing Bitlocker Unlock screen

With Windows 10 ADMX templates finally released I had a thorough search through every setting that was added and I found one of them very useful. Too see the full announcement from Microsoft:  http://blogs.technet.com/b/askds/archive/2015/08/07/windows-10-group-policy-admx-templates-now-available-for-download.aspx 

The specific setting I found very useful is found here: Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\BitLocker Drive Encryption\Operating System Drives\

“Configure pre-boot recovery message and URL” which lets you configure the default message that user get when they receive a Bitlocker Encryption while trying to enter Recovery Mode or sometimes appear when they attach their PC into a docking.

I tested it myself and it work just as described (I added an example text to show how useful it would be to configure it for enterprises):
