Configure the IP index and password of various appliances available under the Appliance Configuration.

You can configure the IP index and password for all the appliances available in Infrastructure Automation.
Note:

IP index is the index of the IP address in the subnet which is configured in the Networks under Domain section. The IP for each appliance is derived by adding the IP Index to the subnet address, so that the administrator does not need to provide an IP for each appliance in each domain. It is recommended to follow a common IP addressing scheme for all the domains. However, if required, you can override the IP Index for each domain.

Note: You can configure the Root Password, Admin Password and Audit Password, and select the Use above credentials for all the password fields to use the same password for all the appliances.
