Installing Devolutions Server



If you just have received your license serials, please refer to the Getting Started topic.

A Devolutions Server instance is actually a web application. This allows for exposing its services on the Internet or an Intranet.

The recommended topology is the use of two servers: a Database server and a Web server. For smaller installations, a single server can be used, but resources will be shared between the two user groups, thereby minimizing performance.


The Devolutions Server Console is now offered as a stand alone application. It is available on the Download page.


Please ensure before starting the installation that you have .NET 4.7.2 installed on your machine. You can download it on the following page.


It's highly recommended to enable SSL Encryption in order to protect communication with the instance of the SQL Server. Please follow the instructions on Note that we recommend this be done after the initial setup is complete.


For full Active Directory integration, the application pool uses a domain identity. Both servers need to be joined to the domain.
