Active Directory Replication Errors sensor - what credentials?



We would like to use the ADRE sensor to detect what replication errors we might have in our 20 different DC sites. However, I'm not sure what credentials are required to run this sensor. I don't want to give it a "domain admin" account - is there a listing somewhere of what specific rights are required to run this sensor? Administrator on a specific DC? Some other security permission?

Hi there,

Try the same as described here by adding a user to the mentioned groups and apply the mentioned settings in DCOMCNFG.exe and WMI Control, then there's a change it might work without admin privileges.

Kind regards,
