Step 5. Specify Credentials

In this article

    At the Credentials step of the wizard, specify credentials that will be used to access AHV Backup Proxy. You can select the existing account or create a new one.


    Mind the following:

    • Make sure the account meets all requirements. For more information, see Configuring Administrator Account Settings.
    • You cannot select the Active Directory accounts, as the AHV Proxy does not connect to Active Directory.

    If you want to use the existing account, you can select it from the Credentials list.

    To create a new account, do the following:

    1. Click Add on the right of the Credentials list.
    2. In the Credentials window, specify the username and password for the account.
    3. Click OK.

    The wizard will create a Linux user account on the AHV Backup Proxy VM and the same account credentials will be used to log in to the web console of AHV Backup Proxy. During creation, the account you provide is created as a local account on the AHV Proxy Appliance.
