Configuring XenMobile Effective Server Mode

Mar 09, 2016

The XenMobile server mode is the value set in Server Properties. You can set the value to MAM, MDM, or ENT corresponding to app management, device management, or app and device management. Set the Server Mode property according to how you want devices to register, as noted in the table below. Server Mode defaults to ENT, regardless of license type. 

For information about setting the server mode, see Server Properties.

If you have a XenMobile MDM Edition license, the effective server mode is always MDM regardless of how you set the server mode in Server Properties. If you have an MDM Edition license, you cannot enable app management by setting the server mode to either MAM or ENT.

Enterprise / Advanced MDM+MAM mode ENT

The effective server mode is a combination of the license type and server mode. For an MDM license, the effective server mode is always MDM, regardless of the server mode setting. For Enterprise and Advanced licenses, the effective server mode matches the server mode, if the server mode is ENT or MDM. If the server mode is MAM, the effective server mode is ENT.

The effective server mode is added to the server log every time a license is activated or deleted and when the server mode is changed in Server Properties. For information about creating and viewing log files, see XenMobile Support and Maintenance.
