  • User account to monitor domain controllers.

    I'm using SCOM2012 and it can only monitor the SCOM management agent on the DCs, whereas it is supposed to be monitoring disk, processor, memory, etc.

    So I'm assuming that the SCOM agent does not have enough rights to access these parts of the server so I was wondering, without making the SCOM service account a domain admin, can I configure it to access all domain controller properties?

    DCs are Windows 2008 R2.

    run procmon, find out where it's getting access denined and customise permissions to allow it to perform those particular tasks.

    however, you may find that it just needs logon_as_service or logon_as_batch or similar.
