Items Needed

  • USB to micro-USB cable
  • Apple Configurator
  • Apple TV 2nd or 3rd generation loaded with the latest iOS

Procedure

Using Spotlight, search look for 'Keychain Access'.

Open up Keychain Access, go to the search in the top right and look for one of the below certificate names, right click on it and 'Export'.  Save to your desktop.  Do this for both certificates by repeating for the other certificate name.  If you do not have either of these certificates please make sure that your Mac has connected to 'Titan WiFi' prior.

  • Go Daddy Secure Certification Authority

To confirm that a profile has been loaded, on the Apple TV, go to 'Settings' -> 'General' -> 'Profies'.  You should see the name of the profile you just created.  It is also recommended that you put a passcode on it, if you intend to share your Apple TV on wireless.  Putting the Apple TV in a never sleep state will help.
