KME (KCS 1.38) release notes — June 16th 2021

DualDAR option improvements

KME now supports DualDAR and allows users to enable this option from the KME console’s MDM Profile Setting menu. When creating a new profile for AE (DO), the DualDAR option is not selected by default since this option is tied closely to the licensing status of the account. Premium users user must manually select the DualDAR option to apply it to the devices in the profile.

NOTE — To use DualDAR on devices, the customer needs a premium or DualDAR license. If there is no DualDAR license available or active for the account or the device, the device is locked within 24 hours of enabling the DualDAR option. Once the device is locked, it is rendered unusable. The only way to unlock the device and make it usable is to reset the device to factory settings.

This release also includes the following feature enhancements and other improvements:

  • New API to provide a list of registered resellers:
