JSI Tip 1943. Domain users/guests can display the list of domain user and domain group accounts?

An ordinary domain user (or domain guest) is granted the Domain List Accounts right. This enables them to display user and group account names.

Microsoft has written LISTACCT.EXE, a tool that will allow you to deny or grant this right. Unfortuneatley, you must call to receive it, mentioning Knowledge Base Article Q180782.

NOTE: You must NOT have RestrictAnonymous (a type REG_DWORD) set to 1 at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\LSA, when users do not have the Domain List Accounts right. If to have to set this value back to 0, or delete the Value Name, you will need to reboot.
