Login credentials - your username and password - for all your managed servers can be stored between XenCenter sessions and used to automatically reconnect to them at the start of each new XenCenter session. When this feature is enabled, XenCenter will remember the connection state of all your managed servers at the end of each session and attempt to restore them at the start of your next session. If a server was connected at the end of your previous session, it will be reconnected automatically without you being prompting for your server login details; if a server was disconnected at the end of your previous session, it will not be reconnected automatically.
If you choose to turn off the automatic reconnection feature, you will need to reconnect to all your managed servers each time you open XenCenter, entering your user name and password for each server.
You can optionally protect your stored login credentials with a master password to ensure they remain secure; at the start of each session, you will be prompted to enter this master password before connections to your managed servers are restored.
When you choose to store server login credentials in XenCenter, you can also set a master password that must be entered before connections to your managed servers are automatically restored. You set, remove and change the master password from the Save and Restore tab in the XenCenter Options dialog box.
Note that if you lose or forget the master password, it cannot be recovered. If this happens, you will need to connect to each managed server again and then set a new master password.
