Reply To: Device re-enrolls as a new one

Hi @luuk:

I suppose, before re-enrolling a device, you may have to re-check the Re-enrollment Options applied to it.

  1. Log in to the Hexnode portal.
  2. Navigate to Enroll > Settings > Re-enrollment Options.
  3. Check for the option you have enabled on Device Status.

When Enroll as a new device is enabled, an already enrolled device gets re-enrolled as a new one.

The command sudo profiles renew -type enrollment triggers enrollment on a device added to your organization’s DEP account. But, if the above option remains selected on Hexnode, it is disenrolled and is added as a newly enrolled device. Resultantly, the older FileVault configurations for the device do not reflect on the portal.

Currently, there will be two enrollment instances for the device, one as a disenrolled and the other as enrolled. You may fetch the FileVault Personal Recovery key for the disenrolled instance from the Reports tab. Among the Disenrolled devices (Reports > Device Reports > Disenrolled devices), search the device using its Serial Number. Click on the edit column icon to include the FileVault Personal Recovery Key. And, you can view it from there.
