You could create a domain user for this task.
You should give it sufficient right on the servers you wish to monitor.

Try to run the scheduled task or service with this account

These are called service accounts.

Ok....local account
What's wrong with administrator rights? You could place it in the local adminstators group.

You could give a suitable name and very complex password.

It's just like the administrator account. Which should be renamed ofcause.
I always rename the administrator account and then create a account with no richts that's called administrator to log breakin attempts.
