  2. Shared: credentials shared which multiple nodes. (one credential)
  3. Not Shared: each node has it's own credentials. (one credential)

With all three config types you must specify the following:

  • Auth Type: what authentication type will be used: Basic, Digest
  • Realm: what realm will be used with this node
  • Hashed: are the passwords in the Password field or in the credentials file hashed. This field is only relavent if Auth Type is Digest. It has no effect on Basic. Hash format: MD5(Username:Realm:Password)

With Shared and Not Shared config types you must specify the following:
