Citrix Hypervisor

Store Your Server Connection State

Login credentials - your user name and password - for all your managed servers can be stored between Citrix Hypervisor Center sessions and used to automatically reconnect to them at the start of each new Citrix Hypervisor Center session. When you enable this feature, Citrix Hypervisor Center remembers the connection state of all your managed servers at the end of each session. Citrix Hypervisor Center attempts to restore the servers at the start of your next session. If a server was connected at the end of your previous session, it is reconnected automatically without prompting you for your server login details. If a server was disconnected at the end of your previous session, it is not reconnected automatically.

If you disable the automatic reconnection feature, you must reconnect to all your managed servers each time you open Citrix Hypervisor Center. You then enter your user name and password for each server.

Note:

Your system administrator can disable the saving of server login credentials, so this feature might not be available.

You can optionally protect your stored login credentials with a main password to ensure they remain secure. At the start of each session, you are prompted to enter this main password before connections to your managed servers are restored.

To turn automatic reconnection on or off

  1. Open the Citrix Hypervisor Center Options dialog box: on the Tools menu, click Options.
  2. Click the Save and Restore tab.
  3. Select or clear the Save and restore server connection state on startup check box.

Using a main password

When you choose to store login credentials in Citrix Hypervisor Center, you can also set a main password. You must enter this main password before connections to your managed servers are automatically restored. You set, remove, and change the main password from the Save and Restore tab in the Citrix Hypervisor Center Options dialog box.

If you lose or forget the main password, it cannot be recovered. You must connect to each managed server again and then set a new main password.

To set a main password:

  1. Open the Citrix Hypervisor Center Options dialog box: on the Tools menu, click Options.
  2. Click the Save and Restore tab.
  3. Ensure that the Save and restore server connection state on startup check box is selected.
  4. Under Main password, select the Require a main password check box, then enter and confirm the password, and click OK. Remember that passwords are case-sensitive.

To change the main password:

  1. Open the Citrix Hypervisor Center Options dialog box: on the Tools menu, click Options.
  2. Click the Save and Restore tab.
  3. Under Main password, click Change Main Password.
  4. Enter the existing main password, then enter and confirm the new main password, and then click OK.

To clear the main password:

  1. Open the Citrix Hypervisor Center Options dialog box: on the Tools menu, click Options.
  2. Click the Save and Restore tab.
  3. Under Main password, clear the Require a main password check box.
  4. When prompted, enter and confirm the current main password, then click OK.
