You can create a credentials record for an account that you plan to use to connect to a Microsoft Windows server, vCenter server, ESXi host, a VM running Microsoft Windows OS, a storage system and others.
To create a new standard credentials record:
- From the main menu, select Credentials and Passwords > Datacenter Credentials.
- Click Add > Standard account.
- In the Username field, enter a user name for the account that you want to add. You can also click Browse to select an existing user account.
- In the Password field, enter a password for the account that you want to add. To view the entered password, click and hold the eye icon on the right of the field.
- In the Description field, enter a description for the created credentials record. As there can be a number of similar account names, for example, Administrator, it is recommended that you provide a meaningful unique description for the credentials record so that you can distinguish it in the list. The description is shown in brackets, following the user name.
