Setting Mobile device management authority to Configuration Manager in Windows Intune

Before starting this post i would like to mention few things here :-

1. Once the Mobile device management authority is set to Configuration Manager there is no direct UI to revert the changes. So, it's better to decide first weather you want to use Windows Intune or Configuration Manager for Mobile device management & then proceed with the setting.

2. If you made a change & want to revert it back the only way is to contact MS Support, register a case & they revert the setting back to the unconfirmed state.

Microsoft support can be contacted on - 800 642 7676

Once you register the case, you may be asked to perform following action :-

1. Retire all Modern Devices (mobile devices) from within the Microsoft Intune Admin Console.  It is important that you do not attempt to retire a device from the device itself for this procedure to be executed.  

2. Delete the Service To Service Connector (under Administration > Mobile Device Management > Microsoft Exchange).
Or Disable the Exchange Connector if you have set that up.

3. Remove any and all side-loading keys and code-signing certificates from the Microsoft Intune Admin Console.

4. Delete the iOS APNs certificate in Administration > Mobile Device Management > iOS page.

5. Delete any and all published applications that are for MDM Devices in Software > Managed Software.

Then the MS team work on reverting the setting.

So, lets start the process :-

We are setting Configuration manager or SCCM as the Mobile device management authority here, so go to you SCCM console - Administrator/Cloud services/Windows Intune Subscription
