Dell Technologies SolVe Online is a lightweight browser-based web application used to find product information on specific products.  SolVe provides Single Sign On (SSO) authentication with Dell Security and Technical information on your product.  There are Procedure Generators to provide step-by-step Guided Instructions (textual/video) for software and hardware upgrades, installations and parts replacement.  SolVe Online is English only at this time.

Dell Technologies customers who desire 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 done by anyone with a valid email address - consumer, partner, enterprise business user. It is only the subsequent provisioning with Dell EMC 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 fill in your account registration information:


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


Confirming Business Accounts

Business accounts must be validated before the use can be added to the enterprise level of features and content access.  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. When selecting the partner, PC/personal device or "none" options the user is taken to a page that guides them to the appropriate resource.  Validated users selecting the first option, a business customer, will continue through the full registration process.


Account Validation

If the user has not previously validated their account, the use is asked to complete a 2-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.
