Changing an account in HP Insight Manager
I am using an Active Directory account (Myaccount)for HP Insight Manager to discover the systems.
But the Account is my user accoung that I use to logon to all computers in the domain.
I want to use a different active directory account (HPsimAccount)that for just the HPSIM.
the problem is when I use the HPsimAccount, I don't see the Systems that I have already discovered under Myaccount.

How can I fix that?

Thanks

Manual is here:

In Chapter 4 Page 27 I would say that you should be able to delegte full access to your alternative user, but you will also need to set alternative agent passwords.

When deploying BAC I would have a global account which is used for the setup, but not shared or used any further. this would be used to create and delegate system users groups to 3rd party engineers and customers and each set of systems being monitored would have their own set of agent / local system credentials which are then plumbed into the tests and services.

Issue is, I think, you just went ahead the quick n easy and used the domain admin for everything, which immediatly severely limits the granulatiry of the system.

good luck

Actually the issue is :
we have a shared Big Screen in the DataCenter and I would like to have every administrator to login and see the same systems that the previous administrator had in the console.

Now I have discovered the systems, but if I log off and the other administrator will login then he would have to run a new discovery task to see the systems.

I believe it is about auditing..
if something happened on a certain server, they can tell who did it.....
