During a test for my certificate of apprenticeship, I got a demand to make my domain controller hide the users who where previously logged on to the Windows clients.
Exactly what are the purpose of this? Does it offer any advantages over security, or is it just completely pointless?
It's not hard to find out who was on the client by simply looking in the C:\Users folder. And if you don't have access to the client at all: You could just rip the hard-drive out and load it up on a different machine and still see the folders.
