Installing MDM services

You can set up MDM services for Windows, Apple, and/or Android through WebUI.

Before you begin

  • Install Docker Engine, Docker Compose, and OpenSSL on the intended MDM server.
  • Ensure that you have one of these BigFix user roles:
    • A Master Operator (MO) with visibility over the MDM Server target machine and visibility of the BESUEM site
    • An Administrator with the privilege to run the installation.
  • Install the BigFix client on the target computer in which you want to install the MDM server.

About this task

  1. Downloads a set of docker images from which is required for the MDM installation.
  2. Installs the services and certificates including the PlugIn certificates and the TLS certificate on which the server runs, and the Apple Push certificate if you are installing BigFix MDM Service for Apple.
