Run As Profiles

The HP ProLiant Server Management Packs for Operations Manager 2007 include Run As Profiles that enable non-default Run As accounts to be used for discovery and monitoring of HP Servers. The following Run As Profiles are included:

  • HP Server Discovery Account--Used for discovery of HP Servers

  • HP Server Monitoring Account--Used for monitoring of HP Servers

The Agent Action Account specified in the Discovery Wizard is used for discovery and monitoring of HP Servers by default. If the Local System account is not selected and an Other account is specified with insufficient privileges, discovery and monitoring of HP Servers might fail.

If a low privilege Agent Action Account is specified that has insufficient privileges to discover and monitor HP Servers, then the Run As Profiles can be used to specify another account with sufficiently elevated privileges to enable successful discovery and monitoring. The Run As Profiles can be configured with the following steps:

  1. Create a Run As Account using the Run As Account Wizard and specify an account that has sufficient privileges to perform discovery and monitoring of HP Servers.
