If you did not provide the credentials within the Network Sonar Discovery, or when adding the node to the database, assign credentials based on the server vendor.

VMware ESX or vCenter accounts used as credentials must have read-only permissions as a minimum.

Assign credentials to Hyper-V servers

  1. Click Settings > All Settings > Manage Virtual Devices.
  2. On the Virtualization Polling Settings page, select Hyper-V.
  3. Select a Hyper-V server from the list, and click Edit Properties.
  4. Under Polling Method > Windows Servers, choose a credential, or select New Credential, and specify a new credential set.
  5. Click Test to verify the credential set, and click Submit.

Assign credentials to VMware servers

  1. Click Settings > All Settings > Manage Virtual Devices.
  2. On the Virtualization Polling Settings page, select VMware.
  3. Select a VMware server from the list, and click Assign ESX Credential.
  4. Choose an existing credential, or specify a new credential set.
  5. Click Test to verify the credential set, and click Assign Credential to assign it to the VMware server.
