- At the Path field, type the name of the server you want to add.

After entering the name, you are prompted for authenticating with the ESXi host or vCenter.
You need to provide administrator level permissions to the ESXi host or vCenter.
It is important that the account credentials not expire frequently or else the backup fails.
