Create a probe administrator account

A Windows probe needs access to windows functions to allow for agent installations. Create an account in the customer's Active Directory that has full domain administrative privileges and a password that never expires. The account name must be less than 20 characters.

Use this account and password during the installation of the Windows probe .

If you need to reset the probe password, you must re-install the probe. You cannot reset the probe password from within MSP N-central.
