Can the default product user accounts be removed or disabled?

Jump to solution
There are 2 default user accounts in the McAfee ESM product: POLICY and REPORT. Is it possible to disable or (preferably) remove these accounts? Is there any impact to either disabling or removing them.

Hi,

Yes you can remove/delete that from the Users and Groups but McAfee recommends you to keep this users as it can be used for reporting and policy from backend.

Is there any specify reason you want to delete these users ?

Yes, we are currently in our yearly PCI assessment and the QSA has suggested that we should either remove or disable the accounts in question.  I believe that those are local accounts and as our organization uses AD authentication, probably not capable of being used regardless, but to address the finding we need to either remove or disable them.

Thanks very much for your answer!
