How to Query Security Policies

Windows Mobile 6.5
4/8/2010

Mobile Operators query a device to determine the current policies and roles that are configured. You should always query a device before changing the settings.

By following these steps, you will know how to:

  • Choose a method of delivery.
  • Create a provisioning XML file that queries the device settings.
  • Optionally package the XML file for delivery and sign the package file.
  • Deliver the provisioning XML file to the device.
  • Use the return document to determine the policies and roles that are on the device.

The following list shows the tasks that you must perform to provision a device.

Step Topic

If you have not already done so, decide on a method of delivery.

Deciding on a Method of Delivery

Create a provisioning XML file that queries the device settings.

Determining the Security Policies and Roles on a Device:

Test that the provisioning XML queries a Windows Mobile device similar to the ones that you want to update.

N/A

If you chose to deliver the XML file by using either a cabinet (.cab) or cabinet provisioning format (.cpf) file, you must do the following:

  • Package the XML file for delivery.
  • Sign the cab or .cpf file.

Packaging the XML File for Delivery

Deliver the provisioning XML file to the device.

Typically, the file is installed upon delivery.

Delivering the Provisioning XML File to the Device
