Account Data Class Attributes
Account Data Details


The Account data class provides data about all system (user) accounts defined on the local system. On some systems, such as Unix/Linux based systems which have NIS/NIS+ configured, accounts may be reported which are managed by a central database of accounts. The Account class is not intended to report all accounts defined in server based databases like Active Directory, NIS/NIS+, and LDAP.

On Windows based systems, Active Directory accounts are explicitly not reported since those accounts are not defined exclusively on the local system being scanned.
