Usage

The Devolutions Server Console is now offered as a standalone application. It is now available on the download page.

Since Devolutions Server 2019.x, many features can only be managed from the web interface. Please see Server settings.

The Devolutions Server Console manages the IIS metabase. It must be started with elevated privileges when the Devolutions Server Console needs to be used. Elevated privileges are granted when you use Run as administrator to launch the application. You can modify the shortcut to always start it in this manner.
