Manage passwords used by WPM Players to run transactions
To play recorded transactions at scheduled intervals, WPM Players deployed to remote systems in your environment use permissions assigned to SEUM-User accounts to run transaction steps. Domain accounts may also provide permissions to run transactions, depending on how your WPM deployment is configured.
Starting in WPM 2020.2.6, WPM stores passwords for SEUM-User and domain accounts in a more secure manner. Note the following details about these updates:
- You can use the SolarWinds Domain Account Configuration Tool to manage both domain accounts and SEUM-User accounts. SolarWinds recommends using that tool to manage all local accounts.
- The SolarWinds WPM Playback Player service must be running before launching either:
- The SolarWinds Domain Account Configuration Tool, or
- The WPM Player Settings tool.
