Hello everyone. I am trying to create a new IOS 15.X profile to distribute to our iPads, and I am kind of new to Airwatch / Workspace One.
I do not see a location within the client to permanently disable private addressing? We need this to be permanently switched off.
Can anyone please tell me *exactly* where to find / locate it within to client so I can save this profile?
Thank you very much!
The only way to disable the randomized MAC address feature in iOS is in a Wi-Fi profile. And that only applies to whatever wifi SSID you're trying to connect the users to, if that is even a road you want to go down. Beyond that, there is no way to "permanently disable" private addressing. In my testing, even disabling it in the wi-fi profile was hit or miss to the point I just gave up.
I should note that now in Android 11+, we're seeing all MAC addresses as "02:00:00:00:00:00", which is a real problem for us. Well, more for the Androids as we'll kick them off the network if we cannot see their actual MAC address. This appears to be as designed by Google when there's a COPE enrollment for devices as Hub cannot see the actual MAC address of the device. Thanks Google.
with ios , we published a wifi profile which with the SSID allows disable Mac Randomization, and the trust cert was the ISE fqdn cert , and Identity being provided by either SCEP or internal CA with a device certificate. Unfortunately Androids dont have the ability to do this private addressing and seems to be set by google and not available to the mdm api.
