I am trying to determine how to set up corporate devices that will use a work profile on phones/tablets that are already deployed.

 

We are rolling out Intune as our MDM solution, and I want to be able to enroll the devices users already have without having to do a factor reset. However, I want them to be set up as corporate devices when they enroll, if they are issued by us. Right now this has to be a manual process (the enrollment is done, then an administrator has to go in and change the ownership to corporate) because devices enrolled manually are set as Personal by default, without an option when performing the enrollment.

 

I see that there is an enrollment option for corporate-owned devices with the work profile, but based on the instructions, it appears this has to be set up during device configuration, which would require us to wipe these devices. Is there any way to set this up on a device without wiping it?
