    PS : A future improvement could be a “test” button, acting only on the “currently selected” system, allowing user to add safely a new system into the working list

    Hi BR,

    for now you can only perform a complete shutdown of all systems.

    And thanks for your suggestion.

    We have some ideas how to add a test and monitoring function. One idea is to perform a periodic check if the credentials are still valid by doing a login to the system but not triggering a shutdown. But at the moment we do not have scheduled this for development.

    Hi Bernd,

    yes, it’s exactly why I needed this test button : to check if credentials are good, when adding a new system.

    Sometime, it can be very usefull, for example when connecting in SSH with key.

    Thanks

    Best Regards

    Daniel
