Checking an asset's connectivity

After you add an asset you can verify that Safeguard for Privileged Passwords can log in to it using the Check Connection option.

Note: When you run Test Connection from the asset's Connection tab (such as when you add the asset initially), you must enter the service account credentials. Once you add the asset to Safeguard for Privileged Passwords it saves these credentials.

The Check Connection option does not require that you enter the service account credentials because it uses the saved credentials to verify that it can log in to that asset.

To check an asset's connectivity

  1. Navigate to Administrative Tools | Assets.
  2. Select an asset in the object list then right-click to open the asset's context menu.
  3. Choose the Check Connection option.

    Safeguard for Privileged Passwords displays a Toolbox task pane that shows the results.
