Is there a password filter file to download for WIndows server 2012 R2?
Posted on 2014-10-30
As per one of the auditing reports, I am supposed to change the following registry key to include the file
The scan was performed on a test Windows 2012 R2 server.
I am unable to find this on Microsoft web site or may be there is none required for 2012. Though the report only says these are applicable to 2008 R2 servers, 2008 server etc but does not mention that it is applicable to Windows 2012 that the scan was done.
Am I missing something?
I could not find any solution to this on expert exchange too.
The scan result is as follows:
