Supported platforms

NOTE—The availability of the Remote Support Tool varies depending upon the type of Knox Platform for Enterprise license applicable to the device and its user. For users who are using KPE Premium license, the Knox container on the device is created as a premium container, which is set to allow the use of the Remote Support Tool. For KM licenses, the Knox container is created as a standard container, which is set to disallow the use of the Remote Support tool by default. In such cases, the IT admin must manually set the policy to allow the use of the Remote Support Tool.
