For some tools, they require to have ssh password in them to be able to login
to the endpoints to extract configuration of the device that it's managing?

Does NB media & master servers require to contain the endpoints credentials for it
to perform backups?

We deem it a risk if media/master servers contain the credentials (domain AD credentials
 or even the local credentials) of the  Win & Unix servers that it's backing up
