Save your credentials for VIServer connections

Save your credentials for VIServer connections

Don’t put your credentials into the PowerCLI scripts! There is an option to store your credentials on the Host.

Instead of plain text connection like:

Connect-VIServer -Server vCenter.mydomain.org –User MyUser –Password “my favorite password”

Put your credentials into the store with:

New-VICredentialStoreItem -Host vCenter.mydomain.org –User MyUser –Password “my favorite password”

Once you stored this, you have to write only:

Connect-VIServer -Server vCenter.mydomain.org

Connect-VIServer check’s first the credential store and uses it 😉
