I'm getting the following Warning under System within my Veeam Backup & Replication:

Disks and volumes discovery for ESX(I) host "xxx.xxx.xxx.234" failed Error:  Cannot complete login due to an incorrect user name or password.

I'm very new with this and need help.

The error means that your login and password for a ESX host are wrong. Are you entering the same credentials which you use under Vsphere Client to connect your ESX host?

Hi,
yes noxcho is right, the error message is pretty clear.
You can manage all your logon credentials in Veeam B&R, using main menu then Manage credentials.
Or just set it up on your ESXi host in Virtual Machines menu at left bottom, and right clicking on host and select properties.
