Modifying your storage system connections

You can use SnapCenter to modify your storage system connections when you want to change the user name, password, port, protocol, timeout period, preferred IP address, or messaging options associated with the storage system.

About this task

You can modify storage connections for an individual user or for a group. If you belong to one or more groups with permission to the same storage system, the storage connection name is displayed multiple times in the storage connection list; once for each group with permission to the storage system. The name of the group to which permission is assigned is displayed in the Domain Group column. If permission to the storage system is assigned directly to you, the Domain Group column remains blank.

Attention: For SnapCenter Plug-in for VMware vSphere, you cannot modify the port if the plug-in is installed on the SnapCenter Server host.
