The Exchange Server and SQL Server Monitors are designed to monitor performance counters of the server and the respective application. In order to do so, ipMonitor performs a series of WMI queries over RPC to retrieve the selected performance counter values.

Having said that, here's what ipMonitor requires to complete these tests:

1. The ipMonitorSrv service must run under a Windows account which is allowed to impersonate.

-In order find out what account it is using, simply run the ipMonitor Configuration program (\ipMonitor8\ipm8config.exe) and click the "Service Settings" option.

-In order to ensure that this account has the needed privileges, simply proceed with the following:

a. Open "Administrative Tools -> Local Security Policies".
b. Branch open "Security Settings -> Local Policies -> User Rights Assignment".
c. Ensure the Windows account assigned to the ipMonitorSrv service is explicitly listed within the following policies:

->Act as part of the operating system
->Bypass traverse checking
->Log on as a Service
->Replace a process level token

After modifying any of these settings, you must refresh the applied Local Security Policy settings.

To refresh the applied Local Security Policy settings in Windows XP, Server 2003, and Vista

1. Open a command prompt.
2. Run the following command:

gpupdate /target:computer /force

3. Verify in the Application Event log that the new settings were correctly applied. If an error was encounted, it will be recorded here.
4. Restart the ipmonitorsrv service.

To refresh the applied Local Security Policy Settings in Windows 2000
1. Open a command prompt.
2. Run the following command:

secedit /refreshpolicy user_policy /enforce

3. Verify in the Application Event log that the new settings were correctly applied. If an error was encounted, it will be recorded here.
4. Restart the ipmonitorsrv service.


2. The Credential assigned to the Exchange Server or SQL Server Monitor must be pointing to a Windows Account that exists on the ipMonitor system (.\account) or the domain it is a member of (domain\account). This account must also be a member of the "Administrators" group on the Exchange or SQL server and must NOT be the same account as the one assigned to the ipMonitorSrv service.

3. An RPC connection must be possible from the ipMonitor 8 system to the Exchange system. In order to test this, try going to \\ExchangeSrv\c$\ from the ipMonitor system.
