Installing the WDM Database
Before you install the WDM database on a system or virtual machine (VM), make sure you have the
supported version of Microsoft SQL Server installed on the system. If you do not have SQL Server on the
system, you can choose to install Microsoft SQL Express 2008 R2 that comes packaged with the WDM
For more information on supported SQL versions, see Software Requirements.
To install the WDM database:
1. Extract the contents of the WDM installer on the system where you want to install WDM.
2. Navigate to the folder where you have extracted the installer and run Setup .exe.
The Welcome screen is displayed.
3. Click Next.
4. Select Enterprise as the License Type.
a. If you have the WDM License key, select the I have WDM Enterprise License Key option and enter
the license key in the space provided.
b. If you do not have the License key, select the 30–days Enterprise Evaluation option.
The license key is entered by default. However, after the 30 days evaluation period, you need to
obtain the license key and add it to WDM. For more information on adding the license key, see
the Dell Wyse Device Manager Administrator’s Guide.
5. Click Next.
The Components screen is displayed.
6. Select only the Database component.
7. In the Configure Database screen, you can choose one of the following options:
•Install New Database Server (Microsoft SQL Express 2008 R2) — Select this option if you do not
have any supported version of Microsoft SQL Server installed on the system. Proceed to step 8.
•Use Existing Database Server (SQL Server Express or full ) — Select this option if you have
already installed a supported version of Microsoft SQL Server on the system. Proceed to step 9.
8. Provide the RapportDB database credentials. RapportDB is the WDM database instance that is
created on SQL Server.
a. SQL Server Authentication is selected by default. Select Windows Authentication if you want to
connect to the WDM Database (RapportDB) using your Windows login credentials.
NOTE: Even if you choose Windows Authentication, the WDM installation always requires
the SQL Authentication to access the SQL database. After you complete the WDM database
installation, you must manually add the Active Directory user to the SQL database with the
required security rights. You can install the remaining components only after you have
completed this step.
b. Username — The default username is rapport. You can retain the default or change the user
c. Password — Enter the password to connect to the database.
d. Confirm Password — If you are creating a new user, enter the password again.
