Managing computers using System Center Essentials can be a much simpler task if one account has Administrator rights on the Essentials 2007 Management Server and on all the managed computers. Essentials 2007 supports using a single account to gather operational data and to perform tasks such as installing agents on managed computers. You can specify the account when installing Essentials 2007.

The Administration account must be an account in the same Active Directory forest as the Essentials 2007 Management Server.
