    • Enter credentials: For Username and Password, type the user credentials to provide administrative access to the hypervisor.

    • Use saved credentials: For Credentials, select a credential from the list of those available.

      The credentials listed are applicable to this hypervisor.

      Note: To create a new credential (with Windows account type), to the right of Credentials, click Create new. Enter the name of the new credential and the user name and password to provide administrative access to the hypervisor.
