Quick Start Wizard - Audit Credentials for Windows

Provide the credentials for the administrative account that Alloy Discovery will use for auditing Windows computers within the audit scope.

These credentials must correspond to an account that is a member of the local Administrators group on every computer within the audit scope (either directly or through membership in a Windows domain group). We recommend that you use a domain Administrator's account. You can specify either a domain account or a local account as long as this account exists on every computer in the scope.

User Name - enter the account name.

Password - enter the password.

Domain - if you want to specify a domain user name, enter the name of the domain. This field can be initialized with a domain chosen in your audit scope. For the local Windows account authentication, set the <Local Computer> value.

Test Login - click this button to test whether the specified credentials allow logging on to the domain.

Click Next.
