Issue with ArcMC and authentication delegated to LDAP

Hi team, we have delegated the authentication of ArcMC to LDAP, and it works fine.

The issue is that ArcMC now shows itself as not Healthy, as it had set the admin user with a local password.

We can't find how to configure ArcMC to use the admin user checking to use local authenitcation... must we create a service user in AD? Is there any way to configure ArcMC to do the Healthchecks using the admin user with local authentication?

Since LDAP authentication is enabled, local account cannot be used by ArcMC to authenticate to the node which is the reason you are seeing issues.

You must use a LDAP authenticated account. 

Please create a service account in AD which you may use for authenticating ArcMC nodes.

Go to Node management -> Select Hostname -> Choose Update credentials in the Actions -> And use AD credentials.
