How to Register for SolVe Online

Dell Technologies customers who want access to Solve Online must register for use by creating an account. SolVe Online is for use by enterprise customers only to access equipment articles, video, and technical data. Initial registration for an online account is for anyone with a valid email address - consumer, partner, enterprise business user. It is only the subsequent provisioning with Dell that requires a business-specific email domain address for your company. 
SLN320822_en_US__2icon Gmail, Yahoo, and other generic email domains are not valid business accounts.

Registration is found under the Sign In area using the "Create an account" selection. At the "Create an account" screen, enter your account registration information:


It is not mandatory that users validate your account in order to get basic (nonpartner, nonenterprise customer) access. In order to receive partner or enterprise access, account validation is required.


Confirming Business Accounts

Business accounts must be validated to gain enterprise access to features and content, once validated business users are provisioned to the Domain of their registration.

To prevent employees of partners from individually registering Dell implemented the validation of the registration. The individuals are prompted to verify their account association. The user is taken to a page that guides them to the appropriate resource when selecting the partner PC or personal device or "none" options. Validated users selecting the first option, a business customer, continue through the full registration process.

Account Validation

If the user has not previously validated their account, the user is asked to complete a two-step verification. A One Time Passcode (OTP) is sent to the registering user's email so the user can proceed.

Validation is required before creating an enterprise account, the user must complete this step before proceeding.

Business Account Information Collection

To provide service for business users basic contact information is needed:

If the email domain has previously been confirmed for online access, the user account is immediately configured for online access. First-time users registering with a new email domain have limited access temporarily to allow for review and setup of the new account. For all other users, the account setup is complete with the user being redirected to the destination site they were attempting to access.
