Verify that the permissions and credentials for the user configured in Zerto are valid. You can do so by:
  1. Login to the ZVM VM. 
  2. Open the Zerto Diagnostic Utility.
  3. Choose ' Zerto reconfigure tool'. 
  4. Review the settings and reach the last step which is the validation. If the user credentials are wrong, the Validation will fail (no need to run the reconfigure process if it's successful).
To learn more about the reconfigure process and it's implications, please review the reconfigure wizard KB.
