It would do so only if you are using a local account (e.g., the
Administrator account), or a *-tech account. If you are using a domain
account, with appropriate permissions, RDP should still work. Do you RDP to
workstations?

Your description sounds like this change will affect the ability to connect
to other workstations via Remote Desktop Connection. True?

As mentioned in the Collaborative IT Discussion on Wednesday last week, we
have made a small change to the Security Policy on workstations that are
part of the Campus domain. We configured the Deny access to this computer
from the network right, adding the ETS-LocalAdmins group and the new
well-known group Local Account. 

 



 

This limits the utility of compromised credentials, addressing a common
method for moving through an organization and harvesting additional
credentials. This configuration change shouldn't impact the ability to log
into a workstation using either a local account or a *-tech account, but you
won't be able to use such an account to connect from one workstation to
another.

 

Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns about this change,
