Druva now allows you to assign credentials to MS-SQL servers. Druva stores these credentials securely. When you assign a credential to an MS-SQL server, Druva automatically assigns it to the Druva service on the SQL server, and this credential does not get overwritten by default user settings during an agent upgrade. Assigning credentials to SQL servers is not mandatory during server registration.
You can manage credentials for the MS-SQL servers from the Registered Servers page under File Servers.
The Credentials column in the Registered Servers page displays the credentials assigned to each server in the list.
You can use the Manage Credentials option to:
- Create a new credential for MS-SQL servers
- Assign credentials
- Unassign credentials
Note: You can Update or Delete credentials from Settings > Credential Store. For more information, see the Credentials Store article.
Log in to the Management Console.
Click Protect > File Servers. Note that if the All Organizations menu is enabled, you have to first select an organization and then click Protect > File Servers.
In the Registered Servers page, select the SQL server whose credentials you want to manage, click more options, and then click Manage Credentials.
In the Manage Credentials dialog box, perform the following tasks:
Create a new credential. In the Add Credentials dialog box, enter the following details:
|Assign||Assign the selected credential to the server. The selected credential replaces any previously assigned credential.|
Unassign the selected credential from the server.
Note: You can use the same credential for multiple SQL servers. However, a SQL server can only be assigned a single credential.
