Learn how to use Profile Manager, a feature included in OS X Lion Server, to configure and remotely manage iOS devices (including iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch) and Macs running Lion. With this eBook, you will learn how to use Profile Manager's web-based tools to configure user settings for services such as Mail, Calendar, VPN, and Wi-Fi; define passcode settings to prevent unauthorized access to data stored on your users' devices; and remotely wipe devices if they go missing. The Profile Manager uses the Apple Push Notification Service (APNS), so you can immediately push configuration changes to your devices, as long as they have some kind of network connectivity. Why do all the work yourself? Show your users how easy it is for them to use the self-service web portal to download and install the configuration profiles you've carefully crafted for them, and how to remotely lock or wipe their own devices without your intervention. This eBook includes the knowledge you need to configure your Lion Server to be an Open Directory master, use an appropriate SSL certificate, provide Profile Manager services, and perform basic troubleshooting.

Awesome quick start,
This ebook saved me hours of time learning profile manager. I seemed to have a hard time finding all the resources from apple in one place. This book has it all including links to all the apple resources and real world experience in usage. The author had an uncanny ability to answer questions in my mind as they came up such as what happens when you have multiple profiles installed. Great job! Thanks!
