PASSWORDS Configuration for Cisco Unity Connection

The PASSWORDS Configuration on the Monitoring Server contains the necessary user name and password details that allow access for Cisco Unity Connection (CUC) monitoring. Initially the entries in the PASSWORDS Configuration will be automatically completed with details taken from the Adding a CUC Offline Cluster. However, if the password and/or user name modifications are required at any stage, this can be completed by using the Updating the PASSWORDS Configuration procedure.
