How do I configure SQL-RD for First Use?

The first time you use SQL-RD you will need to configure the software for first use. The "Welcome to SQL-RD" wizard will walk you through the process. Here's how the process works.

Each time you use SQL-RD, you will be required to log in. Your security credentials determine what you can and cannot do and what schedules you can see.

The first time you log in to SQL-RD, you must create an Administrator account.

Once you are logged on as an Administrator, you can use the User Manager to:

  • Set up additional Administrators and Users.
  • Set SQL-RD to log on automatically using a specified user.
  • Assign specific folders and schedules to specific users.
  • And so much more!

To create an Administrator account, simply fill in the required information in the fields listed on the Create Admin User section of the Welcome to SQL-RD pop-up window (shown below).

Make note of the username and password you set up as the Administrator. You will need these again to use SQL-RD. If you forget the administrator credentials, you will have to log a support ticket with our Technical Support Help Desk in order to have the password reset.

Once you installed the software and set up your database configurations, you may now use it.
