This applies to member servers. For domain controllers and standalone systems, this is NA.

If the following registry value does not exist or is not configured as specified, this is a finding.

Registry Hive: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
Registry Path: \SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System

Value Name: LocalAccountTokenFilterPolicy

Type: REG_DWORD
Value: 0x00000000 (0)

This setting may cause issues with some network scanning tools if local administrative accounts are used remotely. Scans should use domain accounts where possible. If a local administrative account must be used, temporarily enabling the privileged token by configuring the registry value to "1" may be required.
