Cannot obtain agent file share parameters. Error Details: Access Denied

Email It to Me Print this Page
Symptoms I get the following error for the non-domain machines that are running Windows 7/2008/2012:
Cannot obtain agent file share parameters. Error Details: Access Denied
Cause Netwrix Auditor is not able to access the default admin share.
Resolution
These are the requirements for non-domain target servers:
  1. The local account with the same name and the same password should be created in the Local Admins group of the target non-domain server.
For example:
Data processing account: <your_domain>\svc_netwrix (password)
Local admin account on the target server: <target_server>\svc_netwrix (password)
 
  1. The following registry key should be added on the target non-domain server:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System
Key: DWORD LocalAccountTokenFilterPolicy
Value: 1

That allows Netwrix Auditor to collect the event logs from non-domain servers.
