What are VMware Credentials?

NTM uses a VMware API to query data from VMware servers. The API requires a VMware account with at least read-only access to VMware. The data from the VMware API allows NTM to associate host VM servers and the guest virtual servers.

To gather complete information about the guest servers, ensure that the guest servers’ IP addresses and VMware credentials are included in your discovery.

What Permissions are required for VMware queries?

To query VMs from NTM you must use an account that has Administrator access on the target VMware server.
