Sessions with local accounts

'Local sessions' are audited and displayed in the UserLock console. However, 'Protected account' rules cannot be applied to local accounts.

The exception is for servers installed in Standalone mode. In this case, local accounts can be protected.

All session events occurring with local accounts are saved in the UserLock database, and you can benefit from this data when investigating and reporting. You can also interact with these sessions from the 'User sessions' view, as with all interactive sessions.

Sessions owned by local accounts are audited automatically when the 'Desktop agent' is installed on machines.

For these reasons, the User Status of a local account will always be “Unprotected”.

Local users are not considered for license consumption.
