Error Installing Intune Client – 0x80043010

So you have just joined your Windows 10 device to Azure AD with Azure AD Join and the device has auto enrolled into Microsoft Intune (MDM). We done.

Now you want to install the Intune Client to get all those Intune console features you seen and heard about.

Sorry, no go:

Device is registered to be managed by MDM service. Please unregister the device from MDM service before installing Microsoft Intune, 0x80043010

There are two different ways that Intune can manage a Windows 10 system:

  • Enroll it as “mobile device” using the MDM agent built into Windows 10. Use Policy configuration service provider (OMA-DM) Future technology.
  • Install the Intune client agent. All the cool configuration policies you see in the Intune console.

These are mutually exclusive though. Each has its pros and cons. The long term goal is for the built-in MDM agent to be the end-all be-all for managing Windows 10 and it does a good job today but it doesn’t cover everything like Defender management or software updates. The full Intune agent is generally preferred today because it does provide these things but it depends upon your scenario.
