System Center - Monitoring Active Directory RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am running a Windows 2008 AD evironment.  I have the Management Packs installed and my SCOM system is monitoring Active Directory.

    The client agents are running with the Local System Account..  My question is...  On the Active Directory Domain Controller Servers should they be running with an account that has "Enterprise Admin" Rights?  At least that way would be able to get a true report of issues within the AD Environment?

    And if that is indeed the route to go.  Any links from Microsoft to support this.
