If you leave user name and password empty, the special agent tries to authenticate against the EMC VNX device by Security Files. These need to be created manually before using. Therefor run as instance user (if using OMD) or Nagios user (if not using OMD) a command like naviseccli -AddUserSecurity -scope 0 -password PASSWORD -user USER This creates SecuredCLISecurityFile.xml and SecuredCLIXMLEncrypted.key in the home directory of the user and these files are used then.
