Sometimes access credentials for Windows PCs or Linux servers are changed in the interest of cyber security. When this happens, Asset Discovery nodes need to be updated accordingly in order to allow them to continue gathering configuration details from endpoints.
This can become laborsome when multiple Asset Discovery nodes must be updated. For this reason, Discovery Manager includes a function where you can update multiple nodes in one batch.
In order to do this, proceed as follows:
- select the nodes that you want to update using Shift-left click and/or Control-left click. Selected nodes will then be highlighted in blue.
- Then, with the mouse over any of the highlighted lines, open the context menu with right click.
- In the context menu, click on "Set WMI default credentials" or "Set SSH default credentials".
This function only changes the global access credentials. It does not overwrite any credentials you may have set for networks or individual devices.
