This article describes how WPM can be used with domain accounts to give recordings appropriate privileges when played back in a domain environment. 


  • WPM version 2.2.0 and later
  • Windows domain 


Note the following details about using domain accounts with WPM:

  • The number of domain accounts needed is based on the numWorkerProcesses entry in SolarWinds.SEUM.Agent.Service.exe.configThe default on the main Orion server is 2 workers and on remote players, the default is 7.  
  • The domain account must have login permissions for the machine where the WPM Player is running.
  • These steps may vary in different versions of WPM.
  • See also Increase WPM worker processes.

  1. Browse to C:\Program Files (x86)\SolarWinds\Orion\SEUM\Player.
  2. Right click on SolarWinds.SEUM.AgentDomainConfigurationTool.exe and select "Run as administrator".
  3. Select the "Enable domain accounts for playbacks" check box.
  4. In the Domain Name field, provide the FQDN of the domain.
