The Knox Admin Portal dashboard includes the Device alerts module, which provides you with insight into which devices in the portal may need your attention.

The following table describes the possible states your device can be in, separated by service.

Knox service Device state Description
Knox Mobile Enrollment Failed to enroll After you assigned a profile, the device wasn't enrolled for a reason other than the device user canceling the enrollment.
Enrolled (Restricted) If the device you assigned the Advanced Profile to doesn't have a Knox Suite license, or its license has no available seats left, only the profile's EMM enrollment and device settings are applied. Advanced Profile functionality isn't available.
Locked due to timeout If a device assigned an Advanced Profile isn't enrolled in an EMM by the specified date, it's automatically locked.
Locked due to attestation failure If an attestation failure is detected on a device assigned an Advanced Profile, the device is automatically locked.
