Thank you for being so helpful in my last post.
I deployed about 30 devices using Apple Configurator to set the original image and restrictions, and then Meraki for MDM. Everything seems to be going great except that the automatic Web Content Filter is far more invasive than we realized. We'd like to roll the Web Content Filtering back, and allow access to all websites. Unfortunately Configurator is installed on a desktop in one city, and our users are in multiple different cities. Anyone have ideas of how we can remove the website restriction without messing with people's new settings or causing them undue annoyance? Basically, can we remotely remove the Web Content Filtering?
Did you happen to allow the profile to be removed either a)Always or b)with password when it was created in AC? If not, unfortunately your only options other than reconnecting devices to AC to remove the profile are all destructive and intrusive. If the devices aren't too geographically spread out, would it be feasible to ship your AC Mac to each of your customers? Kind of costly, but at least you'll save face here.

Yes, I set the profile to allow removal via password. So I'll have them remove the AC profile manually and I'm all good! (right?)
I'm fairly certain I know the answer to this: Is there any way to use a second computer with AC to manage these devices? It has to be the original AC Mac?
Thank you Thomas!
If you let them remove the profile with that password then yes you should be good to go. As far as configuring Supervised iPads from other OS X devices you'll need to make sure AC is updated to the newest version and then you can select the option to have the device be managed from any other OS X device.
