Is there any way to enter credentials which will be used to authenticate as a local account against a remote PC?
I am scanning from PC1, which is an AD domain connected PC, and I am signed in using my AD account. Sometimes I need to scan a PC which has become disconnected from AD, or is a stand-alone PC. In these cases, I need to use credentials for an account which is local to the remote PC.
Can I enter local account credentials which are specific to a remote PC like "PC2\ITAdmin" with its password? This account would be valid only on PC2. Perhaps tie it to the Hostname or MAC Address to prevent it being blasted out to all the other PCs?
Or even better, enter local credentials using a column name like [Host Name]\ITAdmin. That way the authenticating source would change for each PC.
It really depends on the type of the scan. Some, such as WMI, should directly accept credentials like UserName or ComputerName\UserName with a password. Some don't allow authentication at all, and always assume the current user that is running the application.
Is there a specific scan where you want to use local authentication?
