Symantec Client Enrollment Failure

Created: 10 Aug 2012 • Updated: 14 Aug 2012 | 4 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.

I have setup a DNS entry with "A" record of and a "TXT" record as follows: android-mdm-enroll=

My IIS is configured with SSL.  Symantec Agent installed on the Samsung Android.  The user fails no matter I use the user name or URL.

This is my internet URL:

I cannot access this URL from a computer inside my network or from the Internet.  The way it should work is when a Internet User hits the URL the request comes to our firewall and firewall forwards the request to our Symantec Mobile Server inside out LAN on 192.x.x.x.

On our LAN, If I replace the domain name with the name of our Symantec Mobile Server as follows:

https://FQDN/mobileenrollment/symc-androidenroll.aspx I see the following:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>

- <failure error="Enter Credentials">
  <prompt name="custom_username" type="text" hint="Username" label="Username:" />
  <prompt name="custom_password" type="password" hint="Password" label="Password:" />
  <prompt name="corporate_flag" type="checkbox" label="Corporate Device?" />

PS: Once I succeed here then I will setup a reverse proxy in my DMZ and point the requests to our Sym Mobile Server in our LAN.

Any ideas please - Thanks!
