Entries and other information (e.g. roles and permissions) are saved in Vaults in the data source. If you aren't sure what type of data source to use, see choosing a data source.
Remote Desktop Manager comes with a local data source installed. We suggest that you delete the local data source after you add your own.
1. Click File – Data Sources.
2. Click Add a new data source.
Add a new Data Source
3. Choose the type of data source you want to use.
1. Enter a data source Name.
2. Enter a Host.

A custom login creates a seperate login for Remote Desktop Manager, preventing users from connecting directly to the database.

5. Enter your Username and Password.
6. Create a database or use an existing database (see below for instructions).
