Hello, maybe someone can help with this question.

The devices have been Entra Joined for a long time. However, the Auto enrollment to MDM (Intune) option was disabled.

I turned it on and now I'm waiting for devices to start being added to Intune. However, 3 hours have passed and still no device. I'm starting to worry and hope that nothing needs to be done on the users' side, because they do not have administrative privileges for this kind of action.

How long should I wait and what else is required?

Thank you.

    @Mountain Pond, Thanks for posting in Q&A.

    For your issue, could you please share with us what kind of enrollment method you are using?

    If you turn on the Auto enrollment to MDM option, the device will just automatically join Intune when you perform the enrollment method, if you just turn on the Auto enrollment to MDM option and do nothing, the device will not automatically enroll in Intune, also, please check the requirements.

    You can either use Company Portal to enroll the device into Intune or use the Bulk Enrollment enrolment method to create a provisioning package and place it in the network folder to enroll the device into Intune or Using BYOD method to enroll devices into Intune.

    Note: the enrollment may take a few hours or overnight, and ensure your Internet is stable.

    Hope above information can be helpful.

    I had to write instructions for users and add the “Microsoft Entra Joined Device Local Administrator” role to them, otherwise they would not be able to add it to Intune.

    In the instructions, I used the settings of the Access Work or School system. You must click "Enroll only in device management"User's image
