Add or edit Windows credentials

The Windows account specified within IPAM must be on the DHCP server and one of the three following groups: DHCP Users, DHCP Administrators or local Administrators. IPAM impersonates the specified account on the local computer to gain access. If the IPAM computer is not within the same Windows domain as the DHCP server, the IPAM computer must have the same identical account and password. All credentials are sent in clear text, so you should only update credentials through a browser while locally logged into the IPAM server or over an HTTPS connection.

The Windows account must have the interactive log in rights enabled for IPAM to log in.
