Shared data Sources

Hi,

Looking to create a shared data source for a proof of concept to showcase to management.
I see there is a WebDAV as a free connection, however, I have been unable to configure or find documentation on creating a shared data source using this.
What can I use to set up a shared data source up using SQL lite, something I don't require licensing for testing?

Thanks
Iain

Hello,

The Shared Data Source are only available in the Enterprise version of RDM.
A 30 trial of this product can be requested using the link below:

As for the type of Shared Data Source to use, I would recommend a SQL Server Express Database since it can be downloaded for free using this link:

Hi,

apologies for what feels like a basic question! However, my "google" skills are letting me down.
What ports are required open to be able to connect to the MYSQL database server hosting the shared db?

Thanks

Hello,

No problem, we are always glad to help!

The MySQL Database is using the TCP/IP port by default (3306).

Hi,

Got it working!

Hit a snag, we all use KeePass. Currently, we each have a personal one and an operational one. The personal one will house our own passwords for our domain logins and the operational will house shared logins.

On a shared data source how do you configure the use of KeePass, as it appears if I add my credentials and user two add their's it wipes mine out.
I also had to add my KeePass to the shared data source (all be it the actual KeePass database is not shared).

How are credentials best managed in a shared data source?

Thanks
Iain

Hello,

Since you are in a Team Environment, I would recommend that your users keep their credentials stored in their Private Vault and that you use your shared Keepass Database to share your password with the members of your team.

For more information on that matter, please refer to these links:

Keepass: https://help.remotedesktopmanager.com/keepass_plugin.htm

I hope this helps!
