Updating device authentication details

For each device that is added to the database and set to its proper device class, Resource Manager might require additional or different authentication information before it can gather device information and monitor the device.

For example, before the system can monitor a devicein the /Server/Windows class, you must supply your Windows user name and password.

Similarly, for a device in the /Server/SSH/Linux class, you must supply your SSH user name and password. Set these values in for the device with the zCommandUsername and zCommandPassword configuration properties.

Note: Resource Manager uses Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) with a 256-bit key size to encrypt all passwords, and stores them in the Zope object database.
