Reset credential inheritance



Is it possible to reset credential inheritance? Our PRTG service account is getting locked out each time we unlock it. We believe someone broke inheritance somewhere and typed in an incorrect password. This is for VMWare/XenServer credentials.

Currently this is not possible. Sorry.
However, you can open up a support ticket with [email protected] and refer to this thread and me. I have a script which access the API to check where explicit credentials are set rather than inherited.
Best regards
