    Error mitigations

    When a user encounters an error when creating the work PIN, advise the user to try the following steps. Many errors can be mitigated by one of these steps.
    1.Try to create the PIN again. Some errors are transient and resolve themselves.
    2.Sign out, sign in, and try to create the PIN again.
    3.Reboot the device and then try to create the PIN again.
    4.Unjoin the device from Azure Active Directory (Azure AD), rejoin, and then try to create the PIN again. To unjoin a desktop PC, go to Settings > System > About and select Disconnect from organization. To unjoin a device running Windows 10 Mobile, you must reset the device.
    5.On mobile devices, if you are unable to setup a PIN after multiple attempts, reset your device and start over. For help on how to reset your phone go to Reset my phone. If the error occurs again, check the error code against the following table to see if there is another mitigation for that error. When no mitigation is listed in the table, contact Microsoft Support for assistance.
