Editing Hypervisor Information

You can modify the access point or the credentials for a hypervisor.

For an Amazon hypervisor: For deployments that use an Admin account, the tenant account must use an access key and secret key for authentication. The admin account can use an access key and secret key for authentication, or an IAM role. For more information, see Cross-Account Operations.

For Hyper-V and VMware hypervisors: When editing the hypervisor's General account details, you can edit the host name and the security details. To update the security details, you can choose to enter the account credentials or to use saved account credentials. You can also create a new credential entity (with Windows account type). For more information, see Store Account Information with Credential Manager.
