I am currently testing the PMM software. I installed a local instance and connected several pmm agents using the default admin user and mysql exporter.
I connected the agents with this command:
pmm-admin config --server-url=https://admin:admin@<server_ip> --server-insecure-tls --force <db_ip> generic db-01
This worked fine. Later i disabled the admin account and switched to a personalized account. I also added a service Account for the agents with admin permissions but the agents cannot connect to the PMM instance with these service accounts.
pmm-admin config --server-url=https://<service_account_name>:<token>@<server_ip> --server-insecure-tls --force <db_ip> generic db-01
Checking local pmm-agent status... pmm-agent is running. Registering pmm-agent on PMM Server... Failed to register pmm-agent on PMM Server: invalid username or password Please check username and password.
When i switch back to the admin user it works fine again.
Aren’t these service accounts intended for use with agents? I do not want to connect the agents with personalized accounts. I can’t find an answer in the documentation. How am i supposed to connect the agents correctly?
