Hi,

I'm trying to monitor Windows service status with WMI Service sensor.

Is there a way to do it without adding the monitoring account to administrative group?

service windows-server wmi

Hi there,

Thank you very much for your request.

In our experience we found out that domain administrator credentials have the highest chance to work right out of the box, but this has been an often discussed question already.

Maybe this, this or even this (Reddit) thread can help to shed some light on possible approaches.

Best,
Sebastian
