A Quest Vault record is where you provide us with the login credentials needed to access your Quest One Privileged Password Manager (formerly e-DMZ PAR).

Requirement for Oracle Listener Authentication
When storing a password in your Quest One Privileged Password Manager for an Oracle Listener system you must use the user name "oracle_listener".
Tell me about vault authentication
The vault credentials you provide are used to log in to the vault, allowing our service to access the password for the vault user account to be used for host authentication. You need to tell us in the vault record: 1) the IP address of the vault server and its listening port, and 2) the user name and the DSA private key in PEM format for the SSH authentication to be used for vault authentication. In an authentication record, enter the name of the vault system that contains the password to be used for authentication.
How it works: During a scan we'll perform a search for the system name and then retrieve the password. A single exact match of the system name must be found in order for authentication to be successful.
