SCCM2012 R2: Deploy WiFi Profile on Windows 10

SCCM WiFi profiles are used to deploy a WiFi configuration to SCCM managed computers. You can perform this task by GPO but we won’t cover this scenario. Note that you cannot specify a WiFi password in the SCCM wizard. So, we will export WiFi profile in XML format using the netsh command.

First, we list all the WiFi profiles on the device:

Only one profile: “NicoWiFi”

Next, we will export this profile in XML file. Be sure you have administrator privileges to perform this task:

Note: To display the key in plain text, set key=clear.

Now, you can open the XML file:

The XML file is ready to be imported into SCCM console. Go to:

  • Assets and Compliance
  • Compliance Settings
  • Company Resource Access
  • Wi-Fi Profiles

Check the following box: Import an existing Wi-Fi profile item from a file:

sccm-wifi

Select Windows 10 platform:

sccm-wifi3

Now the last step is to deploy the profile on your SCCM collection. So, just right-click the Wi-Fi profile and select Deploy. Refresh the SCCM policy on your client to get this profile.
