Hi All,

Are there any tools that can remotely extract list of local users, groups, audit policies, password policies, shared folders etc on Windows and Unix servers?

Thanks.

Hi.

Please be more specific about why you want this. Are these non-domain-joined machines?
Windows has command line tools for all this and with appropriate user rights, these can be used remotely via tools like psexec, that act as remote shell.
There are powershell commands, wmi commands and simple batch commands, that can be remotely executed like net user, net localgroup, net share and more.
