As an administrator, you can view all the device migrations that are created in the selected EPMM instance as paginated lists from the Migrations page. Use the drop-down list to switch between EPMM instances. This switch to a different EPMM instance reflects on other pages of the Migration Portal as well.
For information and procedures related to scheduled migrations, see the Labels topic.
Migration Portal supports migrations with Device Registration Settings enabled in the User Settings page of Ivanti Neurons for MDM (see Ivanti Neurons for MDM product documentation). Device registration information that are used during Ivanti Neurons for MDM device registration (such as Manufacturer Whitelisting/Blacklisting, Security Patch Level, Device Owner, and OS version) are retrieved from EPMM to prevent migration of devices not meeting the registration settings criteria set on the Ivanti Neurons for MDM tenant. Note that iOS Minimum Version and Minimum SafetyNet Certification are not supported. If there are any errors, a message such as the following statement might be displayed:
"Device doesn't meet the requirements for bulk registration, please check with your admin."
To find the previous migration requests quickly, use the search box and the following filters:
- Migration Type - Batch, Single
- Migration By - Admin, Device User
- Labels - Select one of the existing labels
- More Options - Show Scheduled Migrations only
The numbers for a migration may get updated with some delay depending on the load on the system.
Managing the migrations
In the Migrations page, click the links for total, completed, and failed labels (based on migration requests) to go to the Devices page.
In the Actions column, click Cancel Migration if required. This option is applicable only to User Controlled migrations triggered at the label level. A confirmation window will display the number of device(s) in a label that are not migrated yet. Click Confirm to cancel migration.
If migration is canceled:
- Device(s) that are already migrated will not be affected or rolled back.
- Device(s) that are in the process of migration will continue to migrate.
- In the Device Migration Portal, the option to migrate any unmigrated device will be disabled.
If a user controlled migration is triggered or scheduled, the administrator has the capability to cancel the migration of devices that have not yet begun migration. While canceling the migration of the devices, the administrator also has the option to send an email or push notification to the devices.
Migration of Android Enterprise devices
EPMM to Ivanti Neurons for MDM migration supports all Android Enterprise modes. In Ivanti Neurons for MDM, click Admin > Android > Android enterprise to view a list of enterprise service accounts (ESA) migrated from EPMM servers.
Migration Portal R18
- Ivanti Neurons for MDM 93
- Migrator Component 22.214.171.124
Mobile@Work for Android 126.96.36.199.2R
The client must be 11.3 and above.
Upload the Android For Work (AFW) Enterprise Service Account (ESA) to Ivanti Neurons for MDM form the Migration Portal.
Distribute the Android Work (Work Profile) configuration to the target group to which the migrated device will belong to.
This is a must for Device Admin to Profile Owner migration.
Ensure that Android Enterprise is enabled in both EPMM and Ivanti Neurons for MDM.
Migration of Android Enterprise devices is supported only if EPMM and Ivanti Neurons for MDM are bound with Managed Google Play Account only.
Android Work ESA should be enabled in the Admin page.
For more information about Android Enterprise modes, see Android Enterprise overview in EPMM the Device Management Guide.
- A device registered in Work Profile mode in EPMM will retire from EPMM and register in Ivanti Neurons for MDM after migration. After migration, the Work Profile policy or configuration is applied in Ivanti Neurons for MDM provided the configuration already exists in Ivanti Neurons for MDM.
- A device registered in Work Managed Device mode in EPMM will retire from EPMM and register in Ivanti Neurons for MDM after migration. The device should not be wiped at the time of migration.
- A device registered in Corporate Owned Personal Enabled (COPE) mode or a Managed Device with Work Profile in EPMM will retire from EPMM and register in Ivanti Neurons for MDM after migration. The device should not be wiped at the time of migration.
Device Admin mode to Work Profile mode conversion is supported on a migrated client in Ivanti Neurons for MDM.
During the migration process, direct conversion from Device Admin mode in EPMM to Work Profile mode in Ivanti Neurons for MDM is not supported.
This is supported if the Mobile@Work for macOS client has a version greater than 11.3.
Migrating Work Managed Devices in Kiosk mode
Before migrating the Work Managed Devices that are in Kiosk mode, perform the following procedure to ensure that the device enters the Kiosk mode automatically post migration.
- Log in to Ivanti Neurons for MDM.
- Go to Configurations.
- Click + Add and select Lockdown & Kiosk: Android enterprise to add a new configuration. You can also edit an existing configuration.
- Enter a configuration name and description.
- In the Choose a Lockdown type section, click Work Managed Devices (Device Owner).
- In the Kiosk Mode Settings, select Enable Kiosk Mode.
- Select the Enter Kiosk automatically (on initial setup only) option.
- Click Next.
- Select a distribution level for the configuration.
- Click Done.
For more information about setting up this configuration, see the "Using Device Owner" section of the Ivanti Neurons for MDM Administrator Guide.
Managed Devices with Work Profile (COPE devices)
For Android Enterprise devices using Corporate Owned Personal Enabled (COPE) or the Managed Devices with Work Profile migrating from EPMM to Ivanti Neurons for MDM, the apps will not be uninstalled from the migrated devices if the same apps were not available in Ivanti Neurons for MDM after migration. This is also applicable to in-house apps moved to profile space.
Workaround: Import and distribute the same apps to the migrated COPE devices. Then, you can un-distribute or delete the apps from Ivanti Neurons for MDM. This would uninstall the apps from the migrated COPE devices.
If an Android Enterprise device has queued the app installations, and the device gets migrated before the apps are installed, the apps will be installed after device migration. These apps will not be uninstalled even if they are not available in Ivanti Neurons for MDM.
