Using the Active Directory Replication sensor, I always get an error saying "Replication access was denied"

Even running the sensor with domain admin credentials gives me this error.

Replication Access is a security setting that has to be enabled for the user whose credentials are used when running the sensor.

To enable this setting, please follow the steps below:

1. Open the Active Directory Users and Computers snap-in

2. On the View menu, click Advanced Features.

3. Right-click the domain object, such as "mydomain.com", and then click Properties.

4. On the Security tab, select the account of the user whose credentials are used to run the sensor. (or add it if it does not exist here)

5. Click to select the Monitor Active Directory Replication check box from the list.

6. Click Apply, and then click OK.

How can I change credentials for running this type of sensor? Changing "Credentials for Windows Systems" does not work.

Thanks, Andrea

The sensor does indeed use the "Credentials for Windows Systems". No other. Which error do you get then on the sensor?

I tried this permissions setup but it doesn´t work. I had a user who were a member of the "Domain Admins" group. I want to remove his membership but without this one the PRTG probe is unable to read the replication status - "ACCESS DENIED" error. What other permissions are mandatory for this sensor?

The question should be directed at Microsoft, which group memberships are necessary to have at least read access to the AD-Replication counters.
