  1. Click the Actions tab.
  2. Select Machine Policy Retrieval & Evaluation Cycle.
  3. Click the Run Now button.

5.3. Confirm the Cycle Prompt

6. Monitor Enrollment into Workspace ONE

Watch for the AirWatch Enrollment icon on the desktop of the Windows 10 system.

The deployment will run automatically and should happen fairly quickly.  If you watch the desktop of the Windows 10 client, you will see the AirWatch Enrollment icon appear on the desktop.  This means the enrollment process is is running.  This process should only take a few minutes at most to complete.

7. Verify via Software Center

Click the icon shortcut on the taskbar of the Windows 10 device to launch the SCCM Software Center.

7.1. Software Center

We can also verify that the deployment has been received on the Windows 10 client by reviewing the SCCM Software Center

  1. Click the Applications tab.
  2. Notice the Workspace ONE Enrollment deployment has been received on the Windows 10 client.

You don't need to run the deployment manually.  It will execute automatically.

8. Enter Agent User Credentials

Since the install command line was setup to use a staging user account (named StagingUser), you will now need to provide your user credentials as part of the enrollment.

  1. Enter aduser for the Username.
  2. Enter VMware1! for the Password.
  3. Click Submit.

NOTE: The user is only prompted for credentials due to the architecture of this lab.  In real deployments where the VMware Enterprise Systems Connector is installed at the Customer organization group and has access to the domain controller, the user would not need to enter credentials.
