Configuring the Vault

To configure the vault:

  1. Expand the vault.

    The login dialog box appears. For a new vault, the only active user is admin.

  2. Type the admin password and click Log In.
  3. For the first vault created on the SQL server:
    1. Double-click the License node.
    2. In the Set License Key dialog box, under License File, do one of the following:

      • Enter the path to the license file.
      • Click tool_license_browse.gif and browse to the license file.

      Apply the license key once only for all vaults created on the same SQL server.

    3. Click OK.
  4. Customize the vault and attach any additional client systems. You can modify Bill of Materials configurations, data cards, users and groups, templates, and workflows.
