Add client certificates to support WPM playback

The Web Transaction Recorder does not save client certificates in recordings, so you'll need to install them on the remote system that hosts the recorder, as well as any remote systems that host the WPM Player service where transactions that require certificates will be played back.

Install a client certificate into the personal certificate store for each SEUM-User account used by the WPM Player service to play transactions on remote systems.

SolarWinds recommends installing certificates with a Group Policy Object (GPO), and then using domain accounts for playback. You can also install certificates individually, as described next.

To import certificates with the Microsoft Management Console (MMC):

  1. Download or copy the certificate file to the remote system that hosts the Web Transaction Recorder.
  2. In the MMC, use the Certificate Import Wizard to add the certificate to the Personal store.
