    Disabling cached logon credentials is on virtually every server hardening
    checklist.

    If you have your servers physically secured in a data center what is
    the real benefit of disabling cached logon credentials?

    Whenever a server is off the network, admins have to obtain the local
    admin password. Depending on how you handle local RID=500 account passwords
    this can add significantly to downtime when resolving issues.

    Does anyone know of a way to exploit cached credentials over the wire?
     

    If someone has physical access to a system they own it anyway:
