Failures when running IPSentry as a Service
When you select to run IPSentry as a service, you may experience various failures connecting to remote computers if you configure the service to run under the Local System account.
Local System account is an account which is secured to Local resources and does not allow for connection/logon to remote computers.
The recommended account under which IPSentry should run as a service is the exact same account under which you configure and test your monitor settings.
This account must have local administrator rights as well as "Logon as Service" rights.
Ideally, a member of the Domain Admin group will allow for simplified configuration with regards to logon credentials for monitoring items such as Event Logs, Disk Space, Performance Data, and NT Services.
Regardless of the group membership however, you should always logon, configure, and test your configuration under the security credentials you specify for the IPSentry Service.
