How to setup Samsung Knox Mobile Enrollment with Microsoft Intune

Samsung Knox Mobile Enrollment (KME) is a Zero Touch provisioning solution. You can fully automate the enrollment of new, or factory reset devices into an MDM solution like Microsoft Intune. The end user only have to turn on their company-owned Android device and connect to a Wi-Fi or cellular network. This will start the enrollment which the end user cannot cancel or work around.
Compared to Google’s Android Zero Touch solution, this service is only available for Samsung devices. A big advantage compared to Android Zero Touch is that it is easy to add already purchased devices (even if not purchased by an approved reseller) via the Knox Deployment App.
Before you start with Samsung Knox Mobile Enrollment with Microsoft Intune make sure you have the following in place;

A Microsoft Intune environment up-and-running with at least one Corporate-owned enrollment profile enabled (dedicated devices, fully managed user devices or corporate-owned devices with work profile)
Make sure that you are using Samsung devices with Knox 2.8 or higher
Configure your firewall with these Firewall Exceptions
