Is there any problem if the user account used to install Nimsoft is deleted from Domain? Does Nimsoft still works? Any problem changing the password of this account or if it expires??
Some collegues told me its better to use a dedicated account to install/run Nimsoft to avoid these problems in production environments. Are tese problems "real"?
Any best practice in this matter?Thanks.
By default the agent runs with system account, so unless you change that, you won't come across any problems. Otherwise, it will stop working as any other service would
I've never seen an issue related to the account that was used to install Nimsoft.
That setup allows the data_engine and other probes to connect to the database with the domain account rather than a SQL Server account. I have been told that running SQL Server with Windows-only authentication rather than mixed mode is more secure, but I am not sure how much of a difference it makes.
