MD3200i management security

This question is not answered

We reviewing some of our security, we came up with a question on the MD3200i management.

We use the Powervault modular disk storage manager to manage the storage units.

Most operations can be carried out without authentication, but when changing configuration, the system prompts for the system password.

Is the password sent in the clear, or is there any encryption between the management software and the storage unit?

  • Hello sdfnc,

    The password is sent encrypted from MDSM to your MD3200i.

    Please let us know if you have any other questions.
