- Right click the target host and click Extract Host Profile to create a new hostprofile.
- After the hostprofile is created, navigate to Home > Host Profiles > your_host_profile to edit it.
- In the Edit Host Profiles tab, you can find the entry for authd under [Advanced Configuration Settings] > [Advanced Options] > [Advanced Configuration Options] > userVars.VMAuthdDisabledProtocols
