You may need to customize your management pack. Certain accounts cannot be run in a low-privilege environment or must have minimum permissions. If you operate in a low-privilege computing environment, you may need to elevate the level of permissions assigned to the accounts you use for running management pack rules, monitors, discoveries, recoveries, and diagnostic tasks. These accounts must have minimum permissions in order for management pack components to run properly.
The System Center 2012 Management Pack for Microsoft Windows Server 2012 Internet Information Services 8 requires local administrator privileges to discover, monitor, and execute tasks. For the management pack discoveries, monitors, tasks, and diagnostics that require administrative privileges, the management pack uses the Privileged Management Run As profile, configured by default to use the Local System account. The following tables identify the management pack elements that are configured to use the Privileged Management Run As profile. These management pack tasks cannot be run using a low-privilege account.
