  3. Select the Check from the tab

Start monitoring this device

The Start monitoring this device section displays the Agent's Summary Details. These include the Device, Client and Site names along with the number of configured 24x7 and Daily Safety Checks.

Click Start Monitoring Now then select the Windows logon account the Agent will run under.

Agent Service Login

By default the Agent runs under the Local System Account, although any valid system account can be used.

Select the account the Agent is to run under from the Username dropdown.

Where using a username other than the Local System Account, enter the Password associated with the Username. The Agent then verifies these credentials to ensure they are valid.

In some instances it may be necessary to run the Agent using an account with enhanced privileges and this can be achieved post-installation by changing the Log on account for the Advanced Monitoring Agent service in the Windows Services Console.
