WE CAN USE GMSA ACCOUNT IN SOLARWINDS TO MONITOR THE WMI BOX talked about this same topic and stated that Support said they had created a Feature Request for it. I opened a case and talked to Support about this and they could not find such a Feature Request but one was now created under case 00429335.
In our case, we have been looking at ways to tighten security within our environment and one is to enforce the changing of passwords more often including on admin level accounts. Some of the accounts we use for monitoring are admin accounts which would make maintaining access to the monitored Nodes an administrative nightmare. In some cases we will be deploying Agents, which will eliminate the need for admin access to the Nodes for monitoring, but in others, we are still working on a solution.
One solution is using a gMSA account (read more about these at Microsoft's Group Managed Services Account Overview page). However SolarWinds Orion modules do not yet support this ability. This Feature Request is an opportunity for the customer community to push the implementation of this ability forward.
