Edit the credentials of a storage system

The credentials of a storage system (IP address or host name, user name, and password) cannot be edited from the appliance; they are edited using the storage system software. When the credentials of a storage system are edited, use this procedure to update the appliance so that it can connect to the storage system using these credentials.

Privileges: Infrastructure administrator or Storage administrator.

For HPE 3PAR StoreServ Storage systems, a minimum user role of Edit is required for all domains of the storage system. The basic_edit role is not sufficient.

To complete this action, privileges of the user role must not be restricted by scope.

  1. From the main menu, select Storage Systems, and do one of the following:
    • In the master pane, select the storage system you want to edit and select Actions > Edit Credentials.

    • Hover your pointer in the details pane, and click the Edit icon.

  2. Edit the values shown on the screen.
  3. Click OK to apply your changes.

    The appliance will connect to the storage system if the credentials are valid.
