The Server Settings dialog box is located under the
Manage menu item. It has four tabs: General, Connections,
Additional, and Email Settings.
- Storage folder: Defines the path where the databases
are stored by default.
- Here you can find all settings for the protocols that the Password
Depot Enterprise Server creates. Here you can specify whether the
same protocol should always be used for each program start of the
server or whether a new protocol should be created for each execution.
You can also specify the directory in which the logs are stored. Usually
this is the subdirectory Logs in the program directory
of Password Depot Enterprise Server. Finally, you can also specify
the maximum size of the log file here.
Here you can make basic settings for the server:
- Server language: Allows you to specify the language.
- Server Port: Specifies the port.
- Use SSL/TLS: Enable use of SSL/TLS connection to clients.
- Install Server Certificate: Opens a dialog box where you can enter
your certificate file and its key.
- Specify which authentications you want to allow for your server.
You can use User credentials (account and password)
and/or Integrated Windows Authentication (Single-Sign On)
New connection from different device:
- Select one of the three available options here to specify how connections
of the same user from other devices should be handled.
- Specify how Password Depot Enterprise Server should handle inactive
- Specify the number of failed logins after which a user account
should be temporarily blocked.
On this tab, you can make settings for backup copies, among other things:
- Backup folder: Here you can specify where the
backup copies should be saved. Use the Browse button to the right
to select a different directory.
- Backup databases on every startup: Select this
option so that the program makes a backup copy of the existing databases
each time it is started.
- Backup databases every: Specify a number of hours
after which Password Depot will automatically make a backup copy of
the existing databases.
- Log backups to file: If you select this option,
the program creates a log of the backups made and saves it in the
specified file so that you can later track when the databases were
- Specify whether to perform AD synchronization automatically and
in which cycles, and what to do with users and groups that are not
(no longer) found in the AD.
Note: The synchronization should
preferably be initiated manually by the administrator for a given reason.
If you require automatic synchronization, the cycles should preferably
take place at times when the server load is low and, for example, every
24 hours (1140 minutes).
On this tab you can define the settings for the e-mail alerts.
- Sender: Here you can enter the e-mail address
of the sender and his name.
- Outgoing mail server: Here you can configure the
outgoing mail server.
- Test connection: Here you can enter the e-mail
address of a recipient and send a test e-mail to check the settings
