Battery Optimization errors across all devices since update to SMC app version 9.7.10088 (devices are now non-compliant)

Hi there,

who else is seeing devices becoming non-compliant after the latest SMC app version update to 9.7.10088? Nearly all of our devices need to be brought back in by the users to fix this issue on the device. Most of our users are not so skilled and a language barrier makes it even harder to explain by phone what they have to do.

The update collides with our compliance policy: "SMC permissions can be denied"

Sophos told us it was a bug in prior version or versions that did not set the setting correctly. With us it is only about 80 devices spread around South Germany but what are you guys doing who manage > 100 or even > 1k devices?

Regards,

Benedict
