Yep. It's illegal for a guy pretending to be an expert in AD and
Security, when it's obvious he's not. 

It's that false advertising?? Think of all the lives harmed.

Hmm... interesting how Mr. Mark Fugatt didn't even know the basic of
Active Directory and I had to teach him. Could it be that he perhaps
doesn't know AD or basics of security? That all he has to offer is
expertise in Exchange?
That has been proven here. Or did you just conveniently miss my response
to his AD newbie email?

While you and Mark were here crying all day, I was having sex with my
girl.

Get a life

You still havent provided any documentation to back your claims that
this is more secure than simply logging out or answered how this will
protect against remote access. 
Mark is a friend of mine. He is one of the nicest, funniest, sharpest
guys I know. You, Sir, are no Mark Fugatt.

Mark, I met you and liked you too, but you're coming across as a HUGE
ass yourself here. My "arrogance" is only surpassed by yours. You're
losing my respect.

Answers to your odd responses:

A: My gosh, everyone, even newbie's in here, knows the Guest account is
disabled by default. But it's ENABLED by newbie's. I mean, really, you
don't think admins out there enable that account? They do all the time
all over the place.

B: WRONG. You mean a Domain Controllers, NOT a server. I have 110
Windows servers. I have only 10 domain controllers. That means 100
servers can be logged onto (be default) anyone in the "domain users"
group. Mark, I'm surprised you missed the obvious here. And let's not
even TALK About non-domain member servers. And again, let's forget about
GPO's. If you stick a server (non-domain controller) that is a member a
domain in the "domain controllers" OU, then only Domain Admins can log
in. That bit of expertise will cost you $100.00.

C: I already explained that. Didn't you read my previous posts? Not to
mention, 80 of my servers can't be powered off WITHOUT A KEY, (like ALL
servers should be.) Also, look at the post AFTER this. How about the
patch installs and reboots? 

I'm getting tired of being right.

OK, OK, this is the plan, let move this to another location, and I will
invite some folks from Microsoft Trustworthy Computing and a number of
security experts who do not participate in this list to contribute as it
would appear we all have different opinions, the location can be a) the
Microsoft Public Security Newsgroup or I have no problem hosting a
newsgroup for the discussion.

Jared, I have met you, I really like you and like many others here value
your contribution, but you are coming across as an arrogant, childish,
prick, you have not provided any authorative statement backing up your
comments, if you make a statement and get challenged on it then you
should provide supporting evidence not just respond with "why should I
find it for you", step up to the plate Jared and prove us all wrong, we
are all wrong sometime.

So, to correct you on some point:

A) the Guest account is disabled by default
B) Only members of the admin group can log in locally to a server and
that's the default
C) If you lock a workstation, anyone can unlock it by powering off and
on, same applied to screen saver passwords, so what the difference with
this compared to logging out?

Children, be nice. I feel like your daddy here youngster.

You come across as a newbie, but that'd doesn't mean you are. It's just
that your statements are in beginner mode.

Of course one can't log onto a server under "Guest."
My 15 year daughter knows that. I'm talking Servers AND
workstations/laptops. Or do you ONLY believe that security is at the
server level?? Again, a newbie assumption. My daughter also knows ANY
admin can unlock a locked computer. So, again, what's your point?? If
you leave it logged off, then it can be logged in by ANYONE on the
domain if the GPO isn't set exactly correct. If it's locked by an admin,
then ONLY and admin can unlock it. 

Again, this is basics here Mr. 13 years of experience, (experience in
desktop support??)
