What account does the Security Manager agent use? 


The default logon credential of the Security Manager agent is the local system account. If security issues require the use of a service account, it is possible to change the logon credentials of the agent service.

For current agent installations, follow these steps:

  1. Open Services (Start | Programs | Administrative Tools | Services).

  2. On the right side, double click the OnePoint service.

  3. Select the Log On tab.

  4. Select the This account: radio button, enter the service account information, and click OK.

Note: The service account must have administrative rights on the agent machine.


For future agent installations, open "Agent Service Account" in Security Manager (Configuration | Global Settings | Agent Managers | Agent Service Account).
