For many months, Configurator was working very smoothly, but recently we've had many problems getting available codes redeemed while setting up iPad carts. This is the same for old and new purchases alike, the licenses are clearly available in the Apps listing of Supervise, but an error is returned saying a valid code cannot be found. In a typical Cart deployment, 18 iPads receive codes and 7 do not. Does anyone know what causes this and what is the best course of action to resolve. Is there some database corruption? I do have regular Time Machine backups of the Mac Mini, so restoring older records would be possible.


A couple of follow-up questions: if I restore to an earlier VPP record in Configurator, what happens to the codes currently deployed in classrooms when those iPads are unsupervised? Are there steps I should take in the restoring process?
