This topic is for Devolutions Password Server - Corporate Edition. If rather you have purchased Devolutions Password Server - Small Business Edition, please consult Getting Started - Small Business Edition

 

After completing your purchase of Devolutions Password Server - Corporate Edition, you will receive an email with three license serials. Each license serial allows for running a Devolutions Password Server instance. An instance is in itself a web server application which acts as a back-end for our client applications. You can think of it as a specialized database for your data. All instances can be installed on the same physical server, or spread across many.

 

Devolutions Password Server can be installed through different topology types. Please consult the Topologies topic for additional information.

 

Domain requirements

 

These requirements apply especially if you intend to use Automatic User Account Creation (see Authentication) and/or Roles to manage your instance.

Add domain users to the Active Directory groups;

Create a RDMOwner account that will be the owner of the database. Performing upgrades with this account will ensure the proper rights are held.

Create a RDMRunner account that will be used as the identity of the website. This will allow you to harden the permissions to what is minimally required.
