At a minimum you should see trust cert and remote management profiles
Check the server logs
Check the user and or group is allowed to enrol devices
A much quicker method is to enable auto enrolment
Use apple Configurator to install your trust and auto enroll certs plus a wireless profile to get the device on the network
I use an enrolment wireless to get the devices on the network and then push out whatever wireless the user needs to be on along with mail ldap VPN etc
The enrolment wireless is then turned off and can be used if the device or devices need to be reconfigured
Once the device. is enrolled by auto enrol you can either leave the device unassigned to a user
Or assign the device to a user using profile manager
Using apple Configurator there is much less tapping away on devices and less chance of typos with wireless passwords
I don't about you but I get pretty of sick of typing the same things over and over, 3 times is my limit !

It is indeed a pain to retype thigs over and over again.
I am actually trying the configurater right now, I have given it to profiles to load (trust and settings) am I right in thinking that the iPads should be present in profile manager as soon as they are finished/online?

Yes providing auto enrol is working
iPads will only automagically appear in PM if auto enrol is enabled in PM
And you've got your servers auto enrol profile in apple Configurator
And you're able to successfully install all the needed profiles with apple Configurator
And if the devices are online
You've still got to do some tapping on the devices but it's much less than manual configuration

Hmm I hit a snag on that, I imported the profiles but it times out during the enrolment..but aside from that this is progress! all the settings are on the iPads and they get wiped and restored if they are plugged back in which should be enough for now.
I will continue to prod the settings to see if I can get it working. I personally believe that the problem could be related to the proxy server that is present here..

Sounds like your getting there
could be your wireless profile is wrong somewhere, could indeed be the proxy
The devices need a working wifi connection to allow the devices to connect to your PM server
and apples push notification service. in order to complete the auto enrol
on the left side of PM
you should see, under the usual things
enrollment profile - this is auto enrollment
if it's missing you can add it via the + button on the bottom left
it appears in Apple configurator as Auto-join Devices enrollment profile
