Supplying an impersonation account

On Windows 2000, the user right, Act as part of the operating system is also required by the PATROL Agent when it impersonates an account. That is, when it uses an account that you enter to perform the requested action. If the agent default account has this right and it has the user right Log on as batch job, but PATROL still cannot perform the request, you may need to also assign the user right Bypass traverse checking to the PATROL Agent default account.
