We are frequently asked about which rights are needed in the product directories.   PA Server Monitor, PA Storage Monitor and PA File Sight share a common directory layout.

 

In general, the monitoring service account will need full read access to the product’s root directory.   That would be:

 

C:\Program Files\PA Server Monitor

C:\Program Files\PA Storage Monitor

C:\Program Files\PA File Sight

 

In addition, there are specific folders that the monitoring service account needs full write access to.   These include:

 

C:\Program Files\(Product Root)\
   \Databases
   \Config
   \Logs
   \Reports
   \MIBs
   \Python
   \CA

 

Note that some of the above folders (Databases, Logs and Reports) can be moved via values in the Settings dialog.
