I am curious how device limits work for autopilot.

 

What happens when a user who is over their device limit tries to sign in to an autopilot enabled new computer? Will they receive a sign in error message to contact helpdesk, or will the computer sign them in anyways, failing to add device policies and install apps.

 

I have had this problem in the past where enrollment for a group wasn't setup properly and they were allowed to sign in but didn't get any company restrictions and I didn't actually get Intune control over the computer, so I am very nervous about how these device limits work.

If you are referring to the max amount of devices you may enrol (limiting device enrollments)

 

Device limit restrictions don't apply for the following Windows enrollment types:

  • Co-managed enrollments
  • GPO enrollments
  • Azure Active Directory joined enrollments
  • Bulk Azure Active Directory joined enrollments
  • Autopilot enrollments
  • Device Enrollment Manager enrollments
