Audit Non-Sensitive Privilege Use

Updated: June 15, 2009

Applies To: Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 R2

This security policy setting allows you to audit events generated by the use of non-sensitive privileges (user rights).

The following privileges are non-sensitive:

  • Access Credential Manager as a trusted caller

  • Access this computer from the network

  • Add workstations to domain

  • Adjust memory quotas for a process

  • Allow log on locally

  • Allow log on through Terminal Services

  • Bypass traverse checking

  • Change the system time

  • Create a page file

  • Create global objects

  • Create permanent shared objects

  • Create symbolic links

  • Deny access to this computer from the network

  • Deny log on as a batch job

  • Deny log on as a service

  • Deny log on locally

  • Deny log on through Terminal Services

  • Force shutdown from a remote system

  • Increase a process working set

  • Log on as a service

  • Modify an object label

  • Perform volume maintenance tasks

  • Profile single process

  • Profile system performance

  • Remove computer from docking station

  • Shut down the system

  • Synchronize directory service data

If you configure this policy setting, an audit event is generated when a non-sensitive privilege is called. Success audits record successful attempts, and failure audits record unsuccessful attempts.

Event volume: Very high
