SYMPTOMS

You create a Web application monitor in Microsoft System Center Operations Manager 2007 Service Pack 1. In the proxy settings of the Web application monitor, you configure the agent on the watcher node to use a Run As account to authenticate with a secure firewall when the agent accesses the Internet.

However, even though the Run As account is configured to authenticate with the firewall, this account is not used. Instead, the Action account that is specified in the Web application monitor is used for firewall authentication. If the agent is located behind the firewall, and the Action account does not have access to the firewall, any Web requests that are sent by the agent will fail.
