Default Behavior

Device Management Enrollment Service is a Win32 service. In Windows 10 it is starting only if the user, an application or another service starts it. When the Device Management Enrollment Service is started, it is running as LocalSystem in its own process of svchost.exe. If Device Management Enrollment Service fails to start, the failure details are being recorded into Event Log. Then Windows 10 will start up and notify the user that the DmEnrollmentSvc service has failed to start due to the error.


Device Management Enrollment Service cannot be started under any conditions, if the Remote Procedure Call (RPC) service is disabled.

The DmEnrollmentSvc service is using the Windows.Internal.Management.dll file that is located in the %WinDir%\system32 folder. If the file is changed, damaged or deleted, you can restore its original version from Windows 10 installation media.
