I am currently reviewing one of our SQL jobs that collects disk drive space on all of our production and acceptance server. The main bulk of the job consists of step which calls a Powershell script that queries the WMI and logs the returned data into a database which is used to produce reports.
Our current setup has using a local admin account to access WMI on the servers but my boss has decided that this isn't good practice due to security issues. Thus I am trying to find out what minimum rights are needed to be able to carry out powershell remote calls and also querying WMI. I have been told that the current setup has to remain in place.
