    Can you elaborate more on what you are trying to achieve?

    Are you asking if you can discover target accounts without using Proxy Agent?


    Does the following discussion match your question?

    Hi Adolfo, This is not possible for local accounts. Even LDAP accounts have to be tied to a target application and target server (domain controller). See our online documentation at


    Account Discovery Prerequisites

    Before you perform Discovery, the product has to know where to look, so target servers have to exist. Applications and administrative accounts have to be provisioned in Credential Manager as target accounts. This administrative account has to be verified in Credential Manager. See Configure Credential Manager Targets for more information.
