Introducing the Administration Tool

The SOLIDWORKS PDM Administration tool lets you manage all administrative tasks for SOLIDWORKS PDM vaults hosted by one or more available archive servers.

Users with sufficient administrative privileges can access the Administration tool from any SOLIDWORKS PDM client computer (SOLIDWORKS PDM CAD Editor, SOLIDWORKS PDM Contributor, and SOLIDWORKS PDM Viewer).

All users have access to the Administration tool to change their passwords.
