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)\


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