Changing the service account

You can change the service account only on a remotely managed computer. If you need to change the service account on a locally managed computer, you must remove the installed agent first and then reinstall the agent with a new service account.

1
Select Tools | Access Explorer Configuration.
2
Click Configure Access Explorer.
3
Open the Manage Computers tab.
5
Open the Agent page, and select a Service Account.
6
The agent automatically updates. You also can click Refresh to update the Status column.

Adding an agent to a locally-managed computer

When setting up locally managed computers, you can choose to install the Access Explorer agent automatically. If you choose to install the agent manually, the locally managed computer is added to the list but the Access Explorer agent is not installed. The status of the computer remains at Waiting for agent first connection until the agent is installed.

Adding an agent to a remotely-managed computer

You can have multiple computers running the Access Explorer agent to scan a managed computer.

1
Navigate to Access Explorer Management | Manage Computers.
3
On the Scopes page, select which folders or shares you want the agent to scan.
4
Click Next.
5
On the Agent page, assign an Agent Computer and Service Account.
7
Click Finish.
