Lights Out Management MDM payload settings for Apple devices
You can configure Lights Out Management settings to remotely start, shut down and reboot a Mac Pro (2019) enrolled in a mobile device management (MDM) solution. The Lights Out Management payload sends a command to a Mac (known as the Controller) using the MDM protocol. The Controller in turn sends the command to the Mac Pro using a secured and proprietary protocol. All Mac (Controller and Mac Pro) devices:
Must be running macOS 11
Must be on the same local subnet and use Ethernet (communication is over IPv6)
Must be enrolled in the same MDM solution
Must have the Certificate, Lights Out Management and SCEP payloads installed
Do not require a static IP address
Communication between the MDM solution and the Controller use Apple Push Notification service (APNs). Communication between the Controller and the Mac Pro computers use TCP/IP (IPv6) and TLS, which is encrypted using the certificate supplied by the Lights Out Management payload.
