Hi,

 

Till Windows 7, Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SECURITY\Policy\Secrets\$MACHINE.ACC used to provide secret which can be utilized for login to DC. In Windows8, there was hardening to store credential in encrypted format but exposed reg key through KB to get clear text secret( compatible to win7 time) . But in Win10, this cred doesn't work. Any advise what additional process need to be done for secret read from $MACHINE.ACC to utilize in machine auth.
