SIM Login Errors reported to Linux/HP-UX boxes - Help configure?

I've got an issue going on and I'm not sure where/how to fix it.

We have an HP-UX server (new, rx3600, hpux 11) that 3 times a day is reporting a failed login to it from the xxx\Insightm account (our windows service account running insightm). I assume this is some kind of polling onto the system. Is there a way to configure this to not talk to the hp-ux box via that, and maybe via ssh or something else if it's needed?
I have the same problem on another box, running CentOS, that it sees SSH connections trying to get to it, but denied. I guess it thinks a PW is wrong or something?

Any help configuring SIM properly for these 2 server-clients would be appreciated.

start by making sure that the proper credentials for those servers are in you global credentials list.

Or update the system credentials for each of the servers.

That's the issue. I have a user in there "Root" but it's not the same password.

Can I have multiple "root" named users in there with multiple passwords?
thanks

A followup, If I put the setting in as a global security setting, I will still get "login failed" errors for the xxx\insightm account though, wouldn't I?
I'd assume it would just try each login until successful.

In which case I would be better to set a system only credential..?

I would try putting the root credentials for the systems you are referencing in the global list before the other set of root credentials you mentioned.

One thing I have found is once you have set system credentials, you seem to have to delete the system and then rediscover the system to remove the system credentials.

Once rediscovered it will begin using the global credentials.
