Configuring the System Center 2012 Operations Manager Connections

A connection establishes a reusable link between Orchestrator and an Operations Manager management server. You can create as many connections as you require to specify links to multiple Operations Manager management servers. You can also create multiple connections to the same server to allow for differences in security permissions for different user accounts.

  5. In the User name and Password boxes, type the credentials that the Orchestrator server will use to connect to the Operations Manager server.
