Hi, I'm pushing out apps to my ipads with MDM server, so I download the free apps with itunes on the server with my server apple id and password.

I then push the apps out to the ipads. when the student tries to open the app he is prompted for apple id and password and nothing happens, but I can open the app on the same ipad with the id that was used to download it from itunes. I don't want to tell

Is this the expected behaviour.?

    I read about this procedure, but I haven't tried it.


    Prehaps the setting on the ipad is causing the password prompt. "something about adding applications."


    Setup two or more profiles on your server. One for student. Second for administration with no restritions.


    Send out the administration profile to remove restrictions on device.  Do your updates.  Send out student profile to enforce restrictions.
