  • During upgrade the installer creates archives the Default.aspx file. 
  • The Installer creates a new Default.aspx by pulling in the Registry values created during the install, 



  • If the Registry values were not changed/corrected after the initial install (only Site URLs and Default.aspx file were modified), the Default.aspx will be created with the incorrect DNS entries


  • This will result in Android devices being redirected to the incorrect DNS and enrollment will fail


  • Modify the Default.aspx
