VCS prompts user name and password information when non-root users execute haxxx commands. You can use the
halogin command to save the authentication information so that you do not have to enter your credentials every time you run a VCS command. Note that you might need specific privileges to run VCS commands.
When you run halogin, VCS stores encrypted authentication information in the user's home directory. In secure clusters, the command also sets up a trust relationship and retrieves a certificate from an authentication broker.
If you run the command for different hosts, VCS stores authentication information for each host.
After you run the command, VCS stores the info until you end the session.
Root users need not run
halogin when running VCS commands from the local host.
