Local Credentials RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello.

    I've faced a problem when I attempt to use local credentials to inventory a machine. Follows some problem's aspects:

    1. When I try to use the domain administrative credentials, it works fine.
    2. When I try to use a local administrative credentials of the same machine, it doesn't work.
    3. If I attempt to inventory another machine out of the domain using its local administrative credentials, it doesn't work too.
    4. The message on the step 2 and 3 is "Access Denied".
    5. All the ports and settings requested for MAP Toolkit are defined.
    6. I'm using the version 8.5.

    I'll appreciate any help.

    Thx in advance.

  • If the target machines are running Vista/Server 2008 or newer, then it is likely that UAC is blocking you. UAC will downgrade any credentials to guest level permissions when used to remotely access a machine except for domain credentials. There is also a policy setting that does this which can affect XP/2003 and older OS's. This TechNet Wiki article describes how to configure your environment properly.
