iPad Provisioning Profile Expiration Issue

OK, I followed this TID http://www.novell.com/support/kb/doc.php?id=7011848 in attempting to find away to update our iPads before the provisioning profiles expires. However, after performing the task using the long URL via webclip, my iPad still shows the provisioning profile ZENworksMobileManagementInternal as expiring Feb 7, 2014. All iPads are iOS 7.0.3 and running either ZENworks app 2.7.4e or 2.8.1e. In addition, our ZMM server is running on 2008 server and the version is 2.8.2. I did update our APN back in December 2013 so it is not to expire until December 2014.
.
Any ideas to what I need to do in getting the Provisioning Profile to update prior to expiration?

Here is a screenshot of the issue I am asking to resolve prior to the expiration date.

I am seeing this exact same issue. Same date and everything. This can't be coincidence.

If the TID I mentioned earlier in the post was to have the resolution last year, what can we do to address the same issue this year? The resolution in the original TID was followed without any success. Please advise as there are only 17 days remaining (as of 1/21/14).

Re: iPad Provisioning Profile Expiration Issue

The profile expiration issue will be a yearly issue for anyone using the Enterprise app. Apple requires Novell and any other group to create new signed certs for Enterprise apps each year. This would be along the same line as the APN certificate that is renewed each year. A new iOS app is slated for release within a week or so.

Re: iPad Provisioning Profile Expiration Issue

Ok. I was fully expecting a new App for the Enterprise version already. Now I can't deploy the App to new devices due to the Mobile Management certs issue. My existing devices work just find with the new provisioning certs. The new devices will no even load the app from the Novell site.

The 2.8.1e app has been updated with the new provisioning profile.

Re: iPad Provisioning Profile Expiration Issue

Thanks JMarton. Is this something that needed to be done because the provisioning profile uploaded to the individual ZMM servers wasn't allowing the install or is this process going to have to be the same each year?

I believe this is something that has to be done every year.
