You need to specify the NSXManager credentials in the clientConnect.conf file located in the Server Manager installation directory.

Note: You can choose the option of configuring NSX credentials either through GUI or clientConnect.conf.

To specify authentication:


  1. At BASEDIR/smarts/bin, type the following command:
    sm_edit ../local/conf/clientConnect.conf
  2. Enter the following line for each NSX instance:

    Syntax: nsx:<NSX_Manager_IP_Address>:<NSX_Username>:<NSX_Password>:443

    Example : nsx:

  3. Save and close the file.
  4. Restart the Server Manager.
