Somewhat same issue here! A refresh pulls the MDM profie thereby triggering the the MDM server to report that the device has been removed from our managed devices group. Once the refresh process is complete the MDM profile is put back but any of the groups the iPad was a memeber of need to have the device readded. This is just insane! How can no one at Apple have seen this in testing let alone release it to the masses? Has anyone seen Groudhog Day because I feel we're living it!
I may have solved my own problem... Not 100% sure yet.
For anyone with this problem try this:
- Remove your wifi payload from your main profile.
- Create a new profile and name it "Automatic Wifi" so that it ends up at the top of your profiles list (alphabetically).
- Refresh your iPad so it now has the two profiles.
- Add the Meraki profile to your Configurator setup and select it to be added as well.
- Refresh again.
This worked for me. The iPad now waits for the Wifi to connect ("Waiting for device to be ready") and then it installs the MDM profile.
So far this has worked on 2 iPads but I don't have the "fleet" back right now to test it fully.
