I'm having issues with a file content sensor I have setup: "Cannot access file: Access is denied(5) (code: PE031)". The file I am trying to monitor is accessed through an administrative share.
Before deploying the sensor, I made sure the domain account I am using has permissions to the parent folder and can browse to and open the file. The said domain account settings are stored in the sensor's parent device under "Inherit Credentials for Windows Systems".
I came across this response to a similar question: https://kb.paessler.com/knowledgebase/en/topic/31533-file-content-sensor#reply-95853
Running the probe as this domain user did fix the error. I expected that the sensor would use the domain account credentials stored in the device's settings, and not the Local System account used by the probe. Is this a false assumption, or am I doing something else wrong?
