Credentials for Active Directory discovery in the Orion Platform

This Orion Platform topic applies only to the following products:


When you use Active Directory discovery to add nodes, provide credentials for the AD account you created for this purpose.

The credentials you provide are added to the discovery wizard as Windows credentials automatically.

If the Active Directory credentials are not same as the Windows credentials for monitoring the node, add credentials for WMI monitoring in the Windows Credentials step.

If the discovery does not provide expected results, you can temporarily enter domain administrator credentials to confirm that the issues are caused by insufficient rights of the discovery account. Provide the missing privileges to your AD account for discovery, and remove the domain administrator account information from the Orion Platform.
