pushing new profile..

We had a large number of endpoints with containment disabled. As this option no longer appears to be a viable option, we need to push an alternative profile out to all these endpoints.

Is there any way to do this to multiple endpoints without selecting each individually and changing its profile??

Why not just update your existing profile to enable containment?

Why did I not think of that !!!

but still… the question remains… is it possible to batch change a profile rather than the laborious task of changing them individually??

The way I tend to do it, is to stick with group-based profiles. So when you move devices to specific groups they get specific policies or you can change out policies at the group level. I rarely modify the device profile at the device level.
