When Servers Alive is running as a service, all my service/process/diskspace/perfmon checks are showing down, while they are not.

All checks are done using the context of the user running Servers Alive.

So if you're running Servers Alive as service (using the system account with desktop interaction I would presume), the checks are done using the credentials of the system account.

The system account of host_1 has no rights on host_2 and worse you can't give rights to it. Does this mean that you can't correctly check services/processes/diskspace on remote NT/Win2K systems when Servers Alive runs as a service? No! You can specify a username/password combination for each of the checks. (make sure that if the host you're checking is part of a domain to include the domainname within the username -> domainnameusername)
