There are ~4 methods to give permissions for a LogicMonitor user so it can use WMI to monitor datapoints. This article talks about method #2.

  1. The easiest way is to use a user account that’s in the “Domain Admins” group because that group is, by default, already in every local ‘Administrators group’
  2. Use GPO (group policy) settings to put a group in each local administrators group (this article/video)
  3. Manually put the monitoring user in each ‘Administrators’ group (only feasible timewise if it’s a low quantity of ~10 computers)
  4. Use a method of setting WMI permissions, so that the user doesn’t even have to be an administrator. official help doc link (I have a utility to make this easier – link )
