Microsoft Windows NT 4.0
RSA ACE/Agent 4.4 for Windows NT (no longer supported as of 3-3-2003)
|Issue||Windows NT ACE/Agent not Challenging users using Local Access Protection|
When set to challenge users in a specified group for Local Access Protections, ACE/Agent does not challenge users.
Users can log in to the network without ACE/Agent asking for credentials, even if the Local Access Protection is turned on.
|Cause||When enabling Local Access Protection on Windows machines, the services are being cached and the ACE/Agent does not recognize the changes until the machine is rebooted.|
1. Enable Local Access Protection.
2. Enable reserve password, and type in a password.
3. Reboot the machine.
4. Log in.
Note that the reserve password is only requested if the ACE/Server cannot be reached.
****** PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT YOU CAN AUTHENTICATE LOCALLY USING TEST AUTHENTICATION BEFORE ENABLING LOCAL ACCESS PROTECTION******
