AvailabilityGuard scans HP 3PAR arrays using InFormCLI. In order to set a policy for scanning 3PAR array, you need to enter encrypted credentials for the "Credentials" record in AvailabilityGuard.
The following procedure can be used to generate an InFormCLI encrypted password:
Step 1 – Log in to the InFormCLI
On the Storage Proxy server, open CMD and execute the InFormCLI.exe from its installation path and type the login credentials (Array name, Username, and Password).
Step 2 – Execute the following command: setpassword -saveonly -file <choose file name>
Step 3 – Enter the current storage array password.
Step 4 – Locate the file you've just created. Notice that the encrypted password file will be located where the CMD prompt is.
Step 5 – Insert the encrypted password you've generated to AvailabilityGuard "Credentials" window. Open the file with notepad and copy the content after the "username" to Password fields on "Credentials" window of the storage array policy.
