I am trying to setup some WMI sensor without using a domain admin account and I am not finding much success. I have tired adding the account to the widows remote management group instead but that doesn't seem to work.

Has anyone had any success with this?

Hello Patrick,

Thank you for your message.

Regarding WMI, I invite you to have a look to these articles which might help you regarding the permissions necessary for the requests:
