Create ESX server credentials for SolarWinds Platform products

For polling performance data, you must create credentials on your ESX Servers for the SolarWinds Platform polling engine.

To create the credentials, log in to the ESX server, and create a user. For more information, consult your vendor documentation.

Credentials created for the polling engine must have read-only rights as a minimum.
