Hi All,

I know others have asked this question, but I don't know that my situation is the same, or at least the suggested answers didn't work for me.

I have my hmdm set up with my domain, mdm.mydomain.com which is behind nginx proxy manager for managing the SSL cert.

I can visit my site, log in, get a QR code, do any of the things I would expect to be able to do.

When I scan the QR code, I get the error that the admin app can't be downloaded.

I am using HTTPS, my links are using HTTPS, I can download the links using the URLs in the application list to my server, and from any other internet client from my domains application URL.

I've tried 2 different devices (Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 and Samsung Galaxy Tab A) on 2 different wireless access points (my home's wifi and my cell phones mobile hotspot) and I get the same thing on each device and each connection.

I've tried changing the application URL from HTTPS to HTTP - didn't work

I've tried changing the baseURL in the tomcat ROOT.xml - didn't work

When I scan the QR code with my phone, I get the appropriate (or at least I think I do) link to download as it is referring back to my website.

Any suggestions?

Please unpack the QR code by some QR code scanner and extract the URL from the attribute PROVISIONING_DEVICE_ADMIN_PACKAGE_DOWNLOAD_LOCATION.

We know the following reasons why the admin app can't be downloaded:

1. The URL is unavailable in the device network, or a proxy server returns a wrong response.

2. When you're using SSL, the certificate authority (CA) bundle is missing (https://qa.h-mdm.com/7394/)

So the first thing you need to do is to try opening the admin app URL in the mobile browser on a device which is in your network.

Another option is to try re-uploading Headwind MDM APK to the web panel. This recalculates the checksum which sometimes helps.

If the issue persists, please contact Headwind MDM technical support (https://h-mdm.com/contact-us/) and send us the QR code.
