Network access: Do not allow anonymous enumeration of SAM accounts and shares RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi guys,

    What will happen if I enable "Network access: Do not allow anonymous enumeration on SAM accounts and shares" ?

    Does the users (everyone) would not be able to list all shared folders on that computer?

    What is the impact of this one?

    Been searching for the effect of this but I cannot find precise answer.

    Thank you in advance for your help!
