vSphere plugin - Username and Password parameters required to be explicitly set in agent.properties



The Username and Password parameters need to be explicitly set for the vSphere plugin to function:



agent.setup.camLogin=<Login>


agent.setup.camPword=<Pword>



These values should not have to be explicitly stated in the agent.properties file; they should be read automatically when user runs setup.



It is also bad to show any password in plain text.



Expected Result:


The vSphere plugin functions without having to explicitly state username and password in agent.properties file as with all other plugins



Actual Result:


The vSphere plugin requires username and password to be explicitly configured in agent.properties file.



Steps to Reproduce:


1. Install hq-agent on Windows Server hosting VMware vCenter Server


2. Do not modify the agent.properties file


3. Start hq-agent and configure during setup


4. Note the vSphere plugin will not work


5. Edit the agent.properties to explicity state the username and password setup parameters


6. Restart the hq-agent


7. Note the vSphere plugin will now function correctly
