Customer may need to use node specific logon credentials in his custom PowerShell Script

A VMware object has its VMware logon and password

If the VMware object is a Windows or UNIX VM or a ESX host, it may have the OS specific logon and password too

To get the OS specific logon/password, use method $PSPlayer.GetUserName() and $PSPlayer.GetUserPassword()

To retrieve the VMware logon/password, use method $PSPlayer.GetNodeParam(…)

Argent for VMware bundles a sample Rule PS_ADMIN_DEMO, which can serve as the start point for new custom script Rules
