Remote User Authentication in Windows 20

By csu_tech ·
I have a user in another state who is using Windows 2000 Professional and is still able to connect but I have a worry that he is using a cached account or something. When he tried to log on to the local machine as administrator, it gives an error that he can not log on interactively with those credentials. I don't really knwo how to proceed or really no where to start to fix this problem. Any help is already appreciated.

Remote User Authentication in Windows 20

by McKayTech In reply to Remote User Authenticatio ...

I assume that he is logging onto a WindowsNT domain when he is able to connect; I don't think that necessarily means he is using a cached account. Rights on the domain are entirely different than rights on the workstation and there can be a different Administrator account, password, etc.

Probably the first place you want to look is the security policies on his workstation. Go to Control Panel-Administrative Tools-Local Security Policy.

Keep in mind that W2K was designed to be able to lock down the desktop so, in particular, I would check to see whether the Deny Logon Locally has been assigned in the User Rights Assignment under the Local Security Policy.

regards!

To check the USER RIGHTS, log at the W2K Pro machine and check the SECURITY CONFIGURATION AND ANALYSIS, then its Account Policies, User Rights Assignments, Log on Locally, double click and Add or remove users.
