BEST PRACTICE TO GET RID OF GENERIC ACCOUNTS
Posted on 2014-08-21
We currently use generic accounts that have limited access to our network, and from there we use individual usersid's to login into our applications.
I have created new generic userid's that only IT has the password and these computers auto login to the network. But now our CIO wants to get rid of all generic accounts, except those running background services.
I am not sure we could use individual accounts because we have over 1000+ users and 150 computers, so the initial login would take forever to initialize, and since we are an healthcare facility we cant switch users because some apps are tied to ports which don't get released when we swap users. We use generic userid's because user profile loads very quickly. Unless theres a way to load a generic profile for every user who logs into the computer which will speed up the process.
Anybody have a solution to this?
