HP SiteScope to monitor domain controllers services

I'd like to setup monitoring on a service running on my DC's. Right now we are using SiteScope to monitor our servers and their services. This is working fine on member servers where the domain user account is a member of a group has local admin rights on our member servers.

This group is also a member of Builtin "Performance Monitors users".

Its a 2003 functional level domain running all 2003 Servers.

My question is how do I give this user account permissions to monitor the service on the DC's without giving the account full domain admin rights (not an option).

To just monitor, you might not need admin rights.

Also consider SNMP service to monitor, or even monitor the event logs.

I hope this helps !

I'm stuck using the infrastructure the corporation has in place, AKA site scope.

I'm looking a GPO right now "log on as a service". Perhaps adding it to that permission? I'm working on setting up lab for testing right now.

Adding the service account under local GPO (will be implemented in Domain Controllers - AD GPO) to "Profile System Performance" AND "Profile Single Process" worked. The agent was then able to monitor the EXE for the service running. Stopping the service generated the appropriate alerts.
