Windows 2000 local policy

The default settings for local policies are different for Windows 2000 Server. Make sure you know who has access.

One of the differences between Windows NT Server and 2000 Server is the default settings for local policies. As a rule, the local logon policy in Windows 2000 Server will allow everyone to logon locally to the machine. They may not be allowed to change the server, but it will give them access to information held on the machine that would have been unavailable from a standard workstation.
