What

Windows MDM functionality was added to 14.5+ of FileWave and it can be used to connect a new Windows device to MDM at installation time, but can also be used to wipe a remote device and re-enroll itAutoPilot assigns devices to your organization permanently.  This, coupled with the ability to "reset" a Windows 10 device allows you to be able to "re-image" a Windows device without necessarily wiping it out.

When/Why

Third-party MDM servers like FileWave 14.5+ can manage Windows 10 by using the MDM protocol. The built-in management client is able to communicate with a third-party server proxy that supports the protocols to perform enterprise management tasks. The third-party server will have the same consistent first-party user experience for enrollment, which also provides simplicity for Windows 10 users. Autopilot allows devices to enroll to an MDM as part of Windows setupEventually the command to "reset" your Windows devices will be included in FileWave itself, but in this first iteration, we are providing you with a method of doing the device reset through a PowerShell command.  It goes without saying that this reset is destructive to data on the device, so appropriate caution should be utilized.
