The following are tools included in this download:
• MDM Certificate Tool

MDM Certificate Tool helps administrators to request certificates for MDM components. Administrators can also set access control lists (ACLs) on certificates, place requested certificates in a specific folder, and invalidate Global Certification Manager (GCM) certificates.
MDM Bulk Pre-Enrollment Tool enables administrators to pre-enroll groups of Windows Mobile 6.1 devices into MDM. Bulk pre-enrollment can be simpler and more efficient than pre-enrolling a large number of devices individually.
MDM Cleanup Tool enables administrators to completely uninstall MDM from servers when other removal options have not fully removed MDM components and settings.
MDM Device Enrollment Cleanup Tool is a PowerShell script–based tool that helps administrators remove from Active Directory and the MDM databases devices that are older or are no longer needed.
MDM Applications Hash Code Tool allows administrators to create an XML file for use with a Group Policy object (GPO) to allow or help prevent an application from running on managed devices.
MDM Device Records Synchronization Tool synchronizes device records maintained in the MDM AdminServices database with managed device information in Active Directory.
MDM Additional Group Policies includes ADM templates for the following Group Policy settings:
• Synchronize Sent Items folder during Exchange Active Sync
• Do not automatically run auto-run applications when a storage card is inserted
• Wireless WAN (WWAN) connection profile used for Mobile VPN
• Allow failover to the default WWAN connection configured for Mobile VPN
MDM Group Policy Models provides Group Policy settings configured to appropriately set up managed devices for three common roles. The models provided are the following: single purpose model, restricted connection model, and minimum recommended model.
MDM Blocked Device Cleanup Tool removes wiped managed devices from the list of blocked managed devices maintained by MDM Gateway Server.
MDM Security Configuration Wizard Templates includes three SCW templates that you can apply to MDM servers to help enhance security by disabling functionality that is not required for the servers.
MDM Active Directory Upgrade Helper helps you detect the Active Directory directory service objects and templates, and also generates a report with details and actions that you can perform to assist you in upgrading MDM.
MDM Set-MDMInstance Cmdlet helps administrators configure several settings - such as database server name, enrollment server name, and port number for MDM servers - that are maintained as an Active Directory service connection point (SCP).
MDM Gateway Bootstrapping Tool automates the steps to deploy required certificates and certificate chain on the server where you plan to install MDM Gateway Server.
MDM Active Directory Configuration Tool (ADConfig) for MDM 2008 is a tool that you use to configure Active Directory for MDM 2008. MDM 2008 Service Pack 1 (SP1) includes an updated version that is not backwards compatible with MDM 2008.
