    It was the comment about users legally owning the device just by signing up for iCloud, I'm amazed you have over 350 iPads and do not know this basic stuff.

    You said nothing about iPads being DFU'd which has nothing to do with Activation Lock, iPads that are DFU'd require reactivating via iTunes and it's activation lock/Find My iPhone and not " iCloud ID" there is no such product.

    Activation Lock is a security feature and NOT a "management feature" of iOS, trying to use activation lock for this is just wrong, you should be using your MDM so you can be notified when a profile is removed from a device by the reset.

    If this is happening and students are trying to get around this by DFU'ing the iPads then it's easy... just take it away from them and give them paper and pencil, they will soon learn not to do this.

    To deploy iPads successfully you need to understand the process. Once you understand and embrace the process then the deployments are made simpler.

    Firstly you need to understand that iPads were designed with a single user in mind. So that user in effect will be setting it up. So if the user is setting it up then all you need to do is simplify the process for the end user. If you get your back-end in place first, then a mass roll-out should be a breeze.

    • Get the MDM structure in place, so when a device is enrolled the profiles are sent to the device along with the apps.
    • Create a wifi network that either allows users to log in with the AD details and then enrols the device e using those details or a guest network that redirects to a login page
    • When the user logs in to enrol the device, some MDMs (or all?) will create a link between the device and the user (causing them to be the owner in the terms or usage).
    • With the link created, the email address of the user (if populated in AD) can be used to invite the user to the managed distribution, but this can be done later.
    • Remember we have enrolled the device. If the enrolment URL used adds the device to a certain group, then the device will be pushed all of the settings. This could also be all of the settings for the internal WiFi, making the WiFi setup now managed by MDM. So if a device is lost and erased, or un-enroled by the end user they lose access to the network.
    • Additional managed prefs can also be pushed out like exchange account details (user can just enters their username and password)
    • Finally the managed distributed apps can be pushed once the user has accepted the invite.

    All of the above hinges on the fact that the user has their own Apple ID.
