  1. In the path where you installed the Smart Electrical server, navigate to the ConfigurationTool folder and right-click Intergraph.Configuration.Utility.exe.

    2. Choose one of the following user authentication options:

      • Use Windows Authentication

      • Use User Name / Password

        Whichever option you choose, your login credentials must first be registered on SAM.

      You will see an appropriate message.

    4. Choose one of the following registration options:
