Has anyone successfully downloaded and installed a profile from a Lion Server to an iOS device? I have a simple profile consisting only of VPN settings set up, and I can download and double-click the file on an OS X machine and get right into the Server Preferences -> Profiles window where it would be stored. However, whether I email it to an iOS device or have the iOS point to the Lion Server profile manager URL and click on Install, I get the following message:


Unsupported URL

This URL wasn't loaded: prefs:root=General&path=ManagedConfigurationList/InstallRequested&sender=com.applie.mobilesafari

According to Apple, this should work, but following it to the letter results in the above error:

I'm not having your specific problem, but profile manager is broken beyond use. If you get it working well enough, it will break the next day from nothing. I've got a client who wants it working in 17 days.. unfortunately I'll have to inform them that Apple just isn't the same company anymore.
