  2. Enter VMware1! for the Password.
  3. Click Submit.

NOTE: The user is only prompted for credentials due to the architecture of this lab.  In real deployments where the VMware Enterprise Systems Connector is installed at the Customer organization group and has access to the domain controller, the user would not need to enter credentials.
