Question Is it possible to monitor a server that does not belong to the domain where NetWrix Server Configuration Change Reporter is installed?
Answer To monitor a server from a domain other that the one where the product is installed, perform the following steps:
  1. Establish a trust relationship between the domain where the product is installed and the domain where the target server is located (for detailed instructions on how to create domain trusts, refer to the following Microsoft Technical Article: Creating Domain and Forest Trusts).
  2. Run NetWrix Server Configuration Change Reporter under an account that has the administrator rights in both domains.
  3. Create a local user on the computer where the product is installed and grant the local administrator rights to this account.
  4. In Task Scheduler, specify this account for the product tasks.
  5. Create a local user (with the same name and password) on the target server and grant the local administrator rights to this account.
