Our security team does periodic audits and found the following account: IUSR_METRO. What is this and do we need it for LoadRunner 11.52 patch 1? We’ve had LR installed for several years, but don’t ever recall seeing a reference to IUSR_METRO. What would happen if we revoke access to this account?

IUSR_METRO is the default Performance Center ''system'' user and is created during installation of ALM-Performance Center and it is added to the machine's Administrators group. It is required for Performance Center proper operations and should be left alone and never deleted.

IUSR_METRO is NOT associated with Standard LoadRunner. It is not needed unless you are connecting to Performance Center.
