6. Does Hexnode have a limit on the number of devices it can support on the server?

The maximum number of devices that can be enrolled in a Hexnode server depends on the number of device licenses you have purchased during the MDM subscription. Say, if you have purchased 1000 devices, your Hexnode server can have up to 1000 enrolled devices at a time. However, during the trial period, the server can only have a maximum of 100 devices enrolled in it at a time.

7. Why are my employees not receiving enrollment requests despite sending them repeatedly?

Once the admin sends out enrollment requests, the users usually receive them within a couple of minutes. However, sometimes the user might not receive the enrollment request because:

  • The email address given at the time of user creation might be wrong. Verify the provided email address.
  • The admin might have chosen to send the enrollment request as SMS alone. Make sure that the option to send enrollment requests as email is enabled.
  • The mail might be in the spam folder of the inbox.
