Are passwords encrypted in transit

For audit purposes, I need to report that policy has set "Passwords Encrypted in Transit" on over 5000 Windows servers. Operating systems range from Windows 2003 through 2012. I have been unable to find a registy setting that corresponds to this policy setting. Any ideas?

They are encrypted using Kerberos encryption if I remember correctly

I don't need to know how it's done, I need to know how to report that it's been done.

It is a function of the operating system (kerberos)

See if the Kerberos status show up in the HTML file generated by the command
gpresult /F /H GPreport.htm

Open in new window

That file should be made in your user folder if that's run from the standard CMD window.

If so, a FOR/DO batch should be possible that uses a list of all the servers as the input.

ERROR: Invalid argument/option - '/F'

The /H argument also appears to be invalid. Is the intention to write the results of gpresult to a file?

work for you?

It turns out that the auditors really wanted to know the setting of "passwords are stored useing reversible encryption" in policy. Thanks to all for their efforts in addressing my question.
