Verify your Windows Domain account

We recommend you do this to confirm it is suitable for authenticated scanning of your Windows hosts.

What are the steps?

Use one domain member to map the administrative share of another domain member:

1) Select Run from the Start menu, enter cmd.exe and then click OK.

2) Use the commands below to test Administrative Share access and Registry access. Variables are enclosed in <>. You'll need to replace variables with appropriate values. For example, replace <USER> with a username like jsmith (remove the brackets).

Test Administrative Share access

Run this command:


Test Registry access

Run this command:

runas /USER:<DOMAIN>\<USER> "cmd /k reg.exe query \\<IP ADDRESS>\HKLM\Software"

Note - There's a space after "query" and before "\\<IP ADDRESS>"
