ipMonitor can monitor resources located on standalone servers and hosts residing on a separate un-trusted domain, or within a workgroup. To accomplish this, perform one of the following:
If you are using ipMonitor 9 or earlier:
- Create a Local Windows Account on the ipMonitor system and the target system with the same username and same password. Upon creating the local account on the target system, ensure that it is added to the local Administrators group of that system.
- Create a Credential within ipMonitor which references the Local User Account on the ipMonitor system.
If you are using ipMonitor 10:
If you are using ipMonitor 10, you can use the method above or you can use NTLM authentication. Here's how to tell ipMonitor to use the latter:
- Create a Credential within ipMonitor which references the User Account on the remote system (Remote_Sys\user) or the User Account on the other domain (Other_Domain\user). Make sure this user account is a member of the Administrators group.
- Within the Credential, check the box under "Usage Restrictions" for "May be used with NTLM Authentication Schemes (Windows NT LAN Manager)". Make sure you do not check all boxes as this will make the Credential unusable.
For more information on creating Credentials, see page 205 of the ipMonitor Administrator???s guide available at http://www.solarwinds.com/support/ipMonitor/docs/ipMonitorAdministratorGuide.pdf
