The device registration errors in Microsoft Intune can be misleading.  Here are some common errors you may encounter during the device registration and enrollment process.

Error #1

Device not added

This service is not supported

Error: MdmAuthorityNotDefined

This service is not supported, MdmAuthorityNotDefined, A connection to the server could not be established etc errors during an Apple device enrollment.  In my case, it was a test device. I have used this device with different user account, Intune subscription etc.

Possible solution / workaround

  1. In my case, this was due to duplicate/already enrolled device information in Intune.  Everything started working once I removed the existing device entry from Intune.
  2. You will get the same error message, if you have an existing Management Profile in your device.
