Create a virtual MDM server for devices that links to your own MDM servers, so you can manage devices directly in the AirWatch Console. AirWatch does not recommend using Internet Explorer to complete this process.

If you choose the next option and select Automatically Assign New Devices, then each device (determined by serial number or purchase number) that is added to your DEP account from this point forward is automatically associated with that MDM server.
