Hello,

Thank you for your message.

To monitor servers by using an account with least privileges, you need to make sure that the user account has enough permissions for it. To do so, I invite you to have a look to the articles below:

Which permissions/rights does a user need to have WMI access on remote machines? Creating a user with Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) permissions

If you have questions, let us know.

Regards.
