Configuring alternate credentials

By default, user credentials are specified when you install the Diagnostic Services used for test execution. You can override the initial credentials for a specific test by specifying and configuring alternate credentials. Alternate credentials are used to run tests under different credentials than those specified in the Diagnostic Test Engine (DTE). The credentials are stored encrypted in the database.

If you are using alternate credentials on Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2012 R2, or Windows Server 2016, you must disable UAC on the client from the Registry Editor. Restart your computer for the changes to take effect.

You cannot run PowerShell cmdlets across domains with alternate credentials.

If you are in the process of creating a test, click Manage Credentials in the Test Settings page.

Managing database settings

Database Settings identify the server on which your database is installed, the size of your database, and how much free space you have within your database.

Database retention controls the length of time that the health test result data is kept in the database before being purged. You can set the database settings for weekly or hourly retention rates. The test result data is aggregated into hourly and daily historical data. This data is used for the Web Reports.

You can also use Database Settings to set Test Results History and purge test results from the database after the specified number of days. Test results are purged upon the next test execution after midnight (UTC).

If you want to purge the data from the daily Web Reports and Test Results before the specified execution time, click the Purge Now button next to the Web Reports daily data retention (days) or the Test Results data retentions days boxes.

Due to the amount of space that test history requires in the database, you can increase the value for Test History retention (days). For more information, see the section titled Historical Reporting Database Usage Estimates in the Unified Communications Diagnostics Deployment Guide.

Customizing counters

You can perform several customizing functions on counters, depending on the type of health test and the nature of the counter. These functions are divided into ones that can performed in the Server Health test only, and those available in other health tests.
