Authenticated Windows login

Hello everyone, I have authenticated scans running windows using domains username and password. The user account is a service account with DA membership. Everytime I run a scan, it fails. When i tried to debug using failed scan QID, nothing pops up on the report. Also when I queried the target windows Box, there are no logs of failed attempt from Qualys.

Qualys report just says " Windows authentication failed for 1 host" .


Since it is a service account, I could not RDP to windows boxes with this account.

My question is:

Does that mean, for qualys to scan windows boxes on AD, it needs full Domain Admin access like any other user on the network? and service account with DA membership does not work?


Thanks for any suggestion,
