Hello Nafoua, thank you for posting.

Please check if you've entered credentials with sufficient access rights in the device settings under Credentials for Windows Systems.

If you want to use inheritance instead, please check if the inheritance is enabled on device level and enter the credentials on a level above (group, probe or root).

For further questions, please don't hesitate to contact us.
