Setting IPMI Credentials
PA Server Monitor can associate a set of IPMI credentials with a monitored computer.
The following context menu choice allows you to access the Set IPMI Credentials dialog. If you don't see the IPMI menu, you need to
set the Server Type.
The Set IPMI Credentials dialog lets you set IPMI credentials that will be used when accessing an IPMI device.
When you press OK, the credentials are validated and saved. If you want to clear the credentials, clear both values and press OK.
All credentials are protected using the Microsoft best practice of encrypting them with a machine-specific key, which means they can only be decrypted on the same computer they were encrypted on.
