I get the following error for the non-domain machines that are running Windows 7/2008/2012:
Cannot obtain agent file share parameters. Error Details: Access Denied


Netwrix Auditor is not able to access the default admin share.


These are the requirements for non-domain target servers:
  1. The local account with the same name and the same password should be created in the Local Admins group of the target non-domain server.
For example:
Data processing account: <your_domain>svc_netwrix (password)
Local admin account on the target server: <target_server>svc_netwrix (password)
  1. The following registry key should be added on the target non-domain server:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionPoliciesSystem
Key: DWORD LocalAccountTokenFilterPolicy
Value: 1
That allows Netwrix Auditor to collect the event logs from non-domain servers.
