We ran into trouble monitoring our Windows Domain Controllers because we want to use least privilege and we were only receiving ping and Host Status data. It showed “No data” for CPU, disks, etc.
We used the information in the link “https://www.logicmonitor.com/support/monitoring/os-virtualization/monitoring-a-domain-controller-dc” and installed the collector on a DC using the local system account and set it to monitor itself.
I am now receiving CPU, disk, etc. from that domain controller. It appears the only catch is that I cannot monitor other systems with that collector but that is OK for our situation.
Are there others out there that are monitoring DCs using this method and if so, have you run into any trouble (performance, etc.)?
If you are not using this method, how are you monitoring your DCs in Logic Monitor.
THANK YOU very much for your assistance/opinions/guidance.
