How to configure non domain account for WMI access


Hello Everyone,

I have a service account that I need to configure to collect WMI data from domain controllers. This account can't be an admin on the domain controller, so am trying to provide least privilege access to my account as per the documentation below:

I am running splunk enterprise 8.0.1 and have a basic architecture with only one instance of splunk running as an indexer and search head. I have not installed any forwarder(not allowed to install that on DC as per policy).

So far, I have tried everything in this link:

However, I am still not able to connect to the DC. The above link says that it's been tried on windows 2003. I have windows server 2012 and 2016. Could someone please assist me in getting this fixed? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Please let me know if you require further information. I apologize if I have missed anything crucial. I am still a newbie trying to find my way through it.

Thank You!
