Optional descriptive text.

Principal ID

Enter the name of the user account to which a role should be mapped. For example, you might enter Administrator.

Notes

  • If you are using an automation principal for Microsoft Windows user mapping, the account you identify in this step must be granted the Windows "Logon as a batch job" privilege on each Windows server. To access this setting, use the Control Panel and go to Administrative Tools > Local Security Policy > Local Policies > User Rights Assignment. If you are using an automation principal for agent installation, you must grant the "Logon as a batch job" privilege to this account on the PsExec server.
  • If you are using an automation principal for agent installation, additional configuration may be required for the account you specify here. For more information, see Troubleshooting agent installation.

Domain

Enter the name of the domain that the user being impersonated uses for logging on to Windows.
The domain is optional. If the logon account is local to the managed server, do not enter a domain.

Passphrase

Enter the password or passphrase needed to authenticate the automation principal. Then enter it again for Confirm.
