Assign credentials to virtual servers in SAM

Updated: 3-9-2017

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.
