Hello Benedict,

 

Activation Service: This service is used only by the MobiControl server, to renew the license information (and to start using the product).

Agent Builder Service: This service is used only by the MobiControl server, applies to every platform that uses Agent Builder (currently Windows Mobile/CE and Windows Desktop Classic).

Remote Control Skins Service: This service is used by every platform that allows remote view and remote control of devices. It allows you to automatically download skins that will be shown during remote control /remote view.

Location Service: This service is used only by the MobiControl server and applies to every platform that allows location.

Enrollment Service: Used by both server (to create Add Device Rules and bind them with an Enrollment ID) and device (to get the MobiControl server URL bound to the Enrollment ID), applies to every platform that allows enrollment via an Enrollment ID.

 

“Messaging” is not part of SOTI Services, rather a feature within MobiControl, but it allows you to send messages to devices using their network connection, or GC2M (Android), or APNS (iOS).

 

In order to have an offline instance you need to install the “Agent Builder Service” on your MobiControl server, which will allow you to generate agents locally for Windows Mobile/CE and Windows Desktop Classic devices. Installation of the “Agent Builder Service” can be done with the help of our Professional Services Team.

 

However, if your instance only has Android devices you could simply side-load the skins into the MobiControl server and the device agent/mcsetup.ini (sdcard or download folder) into the devices.
