encrypting password for accessing the array

Hi,

Is there a way to do this so we don't have to leave plain text password around?

Re: encrypting password for accessing the array

Yes, try this. 

read-host -assecurestring | convertfrom-securestring | out-file C:\securestring.txt`

Once you have the encrypted password file created, you can add the following to your script or run direct from the CLI:

$username = "domain01\user"
$password = cat C:\securestring.txt | convertto-securestring
$cred = new-object -typename System.Management.Automation.PSCredential `
         -argumentlist $username, $password

Then, connect-nacontroller controller01 -Credential $cred
