Can someone please tell me if the Classic .NET AppPool, DefaultAppPool, SQL Express/Agent  groups actually need to be given this right?  We follow DISA Stigs and this was a finding.  We need to know if they can be removed safely and if not, sound justification.  Thanks in advance.

Adjust Memory Quotas for a Process Security this is your title

Can someone please tell me if the Classic .NET AppPool, DefaultAppPool, SQL Express/Agent  groups actually need to be given this right?
this is your question


WA000-WI6026 IIS7
The amount of private memory an application pool uses must be set.
4. Scroll down to the recycling section and set the value for Private Memory Limit to a value other than 0.
this is a DOD requirement, it addresses a 'potential' problem.


Given What right for the groups you mentioned? Where did you see this, mentioned in context with the title of your question?

I'm not following your question.  Sorry.  But here is the finding.  The groups mentioned have this right.




"""Analyze the system using the Security Configuration and Analysis snap-in.
Expand the Security Configuration and Analysis tree view.
Navigate to Local Policies -> User Rights Assignment.

If any accounts or groups other than the following are granted the “Adjust memory quotas for a process” -  SeIncreaseQuotaPrivilege right
, this is a finding:

Administrators
Local Service
Network Service"""

No they don't need this right. The defaults are fine. (Administrators/local Service/Network Service)

Yes as it is sql express and not sql server .. With Sql Server you may have to play with the memory quota assignment but usually the default is fine.
